i didn't finish this book because i found it to be kind of dull and uninteresting. sachs did a wonderful job of describing vietnamese people and culture but there just wasn't enough action to keep me interested. ( )

Dana Sachs is a San Franciscan who fell in love with Vietnam while on a trip through Asia and returned to live in Hanoi. She writes in great detail about adapting to a remarkably different culture. It makes Vietnam sound like a very daunting place to visit, but also a very rewarding one. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"The House on Dream Street is Sachs's heartfelt account of how she settled in with a Vietnamese family, learned the language, and made a place for herself in "enemy" territory. And then, when she least expected it, she fell in love." "With vivid descriptions of the tastes, sounds, smells, and images of Vietnam, Sachs reveals the beauty of a country long off-limits to Americans. Part love story, part social commentary, Sachs's memoir explores the tenuous balance between old and new Vietnam. But above all, The House on Dream Street tells the story of a woman learning to know her own heart."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
