Would I say my reading addiction is a problem?

Would you consider the fact that I've blown my daughter's future college fund on new books an issue? Cool, me either. I knew we'd be friends.

AUTHOR: Alan Lightman

GENRE: Literary Fiction

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

RELEASE DATE: September 3, 2019

PUBLISHER: Counterpoint Press

COMPARABLE TITLES: What is the What by Dave Eggers, The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo, The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See

SUMMARY: Three Flames is the story of a struggling Cambodian family, and the intertwining personal narratives of each of its members.

Beginning in 1973 right before the Cambodian Genocide and working its way through the years to 2015, Three Flames travels through the lives of a mother struggling with her father’s murder even decades after it happened, a daughter married too young to a violent and cheating husband, a brother determined to win the heart of the most beautiful girl in the village and escape the dreary farmer’s life he’s facing, a loyal daughter who takes an extremely harrowing job to pay off her father’s gambling debt, and a young girl determined to stand up to her father in order to fight for her education.

WHY THIS IS A MUST-READ: This is an eye-opening, empowering, and heartbreaking book. The stories of the individual characters are fascinating and painted in such a vivid way you’ll feel like you’re right there with them.

This book is even more special because it was birthed from the author’s personal work as the founder of Harpswell Foundation, “a nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance a new generation of female leaders in Cambodia and all of Southeast Asia”.


RATING SYSTEM:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️—Add this to your must-read list immediately. This is an important and moving book. I highly recommend.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️—This book was entertaining, well-written, and worthwhile. I definitely recommend.

⭐️⭐️⭐️—This book was decent and a good read. I recommend, but do not consider it a must-read.

⭐️⭐️—This book had one or two positive qualities, but overall I do not recommend.

⭐️—This book fell flat in several ways. I do not recommend.
