I have just finished Anh Do's (pronounced Dough) book The Happiest Refugee for my book club. Simply put, I enjoyed it. It's a light hearted read, covering some not so light-hearted times in his life. He thinks himself so lucky and blessed - which I think he is - totally, blessed with a great disposition and outlook on life.
As he has a profile in the Australian media arena, it was interesting to know more about him and his background. Also, reading the book in today's current political climate, where the media have a field day with the term Boat People, which I abhor. These people are not viewed as refugee's fleeing terrible war-torn countries or human rights atrocities, but as queue jumpers. I cringe as an Australian, on our treatment of refugees. Every Australian would benefit from reading and knowing one refugee's story.
