Brief Description

Saigon fell to the Viet Cong on April 30, 1975. Kien Nguyen watched the last U.S. Army helicopter leave without him, without his brother, without his mother, without his grandparents. Left to a nightmarish existence in a violated & decimated country, Kien was more at risk than most because of his odd blond hair & his light eyes - because he was Amerasian. He was the most unwanted. Told with stark & poetic brilliance, this is a story of survival & hope, a moving & personal record of a tumultuous & important piece of history.

  • Best, even the second read

    By Nicole Phan
    The first time when I read The Unwanted was on paperback, and I finished it overnight. This time, having found it on iTunes Bookstore, I took my time and still finished it rather quickly. Absolutely a must read for anyone who wants to see first hand the experience of a Vietnamese - including one of an Amerasian - during the leading toward and the fall of Saigon. I chose to make the book purchase while taking a trip visiting my family in Saigon so every time I drove past the areas that Kien wrote in the book, then came back and read about it, it really felt like I was there, and it all happened around me. The struggles that were described are few of many untold stories, sad to say.

  • The unwanted

    By Ofkorsbyjeanne
    A fantastic book. It should be required reading in high school. This to instill in the younger generation how very important it is to maintain the FREEDOM of OUR GREAT NATION.
  • Excellent

    By MrsNmama
    I loved reading this book so much. It was well written and very enlightening. I would be interested in finding out if he ever returned to Vietnam or if he ever found his real dad. He should start a blog!
