Excellent, Thought-Provoking Book

by PaulK on Apr 23, 2007

War Trash is an engaging, exciting, and depressing account of life in a US army POW camp during the Korean war. At the beginning of the war, the protagonist finds himself fighting for a cause for which he cares little--and then again after being captured. In this book, Ha Jin vividly and masterfully portrays life in a POW camp. But much more importantly, he delves into the psyches and personalities of war prisoners, and examines the personalities that support nationalism and communism. I highly recommend War Trash, especially for its insight into the politics of revolution and national rebirth.
