I stumbled upon this book because I m planning a short story collection based on Vietnamese folk stories and renovated operas centered around women and wanted to see if anyone had written a story about uan Am Thi Kinh in English yet I was pleasantly surprised to find that one had been written by Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh whose name is famous within the Buddhist community I ordered it immediately The volume is thin but packs a punch Anyone looking for a bit of spiritual wisdom will benefit greatly from reading this Having grown up around the Thi Kinh legend I didn t think this would be anything new On some levels it s not the story is well known and this version doesn t mess TOO much with the original material However Thich Nhat Hanh pays attention to all the minor characters that one doesn t really hear much about in most retellings and does so in a compassionate way that highlights their humanity In reading this one should keep in mind that the author is not a novelist and that the book s purpose is to convey Buddhist teachings to the reader There s a lot of explanation about the teachings of Buddha the writing style is pretty basic and it can be a tedious read for someone who reads a lot of good fiction You likely won t find anything very commendable about the prose itself it s the lessons one learns from the book that are important I definitely struggled to read through it because it was so preachy but I was glad I did read it Overall a good book to read if you re curious about Buddhism but can t stomach nonfiction I am not very religious but I felt significantly reverent after reading this book

Unfortunately I have to agree with some of the reviewers that this book s writing is somewhat off putting TNH is one of my favorite authors and I understand that this is meant as a Buddhist lesson But still I could never really get into the story because of the writing so I might not have learned the lesson as well as I was supposed to Not a bad book per se but I would basically recommend any other book by TNH rather than this one
