His improbable survival of the communist takeover of Cambodia and his unlikely appearance in a Hollywood film about it (The Killing Fields) gave Haing Ngor the conviction that he was “intended” to bear witness to what happened in his country. This engaging book is part of his testimony. Reader Logan has the comfortable authority of a seasoned performer. Taking his cue from the author, he narrates an often horrific tale in a restrained, straightforward manner. He handles the occasional character speeches well and has clearly taken some pains with the pronunciation of Khmer (the Cambodian language). Good sound and packaging complete a quality product.
