It is about Trinh's journey, a fictional account based on historical facts and personal experiences. Trinh had woven through life with various other characters in the society, from young children, young adults, adults, soldiers, veteran, disabled veteran, widow, prostitute, bar girl, an Amerasian, to re-educated camp prisoners, etc. She was a Vietnamese teenager, had lived through the dark days that led to the Fall of Saigon in 1975 and three years under the new regime before escaping by boat to Malaysia in 1978. Shock Peace is a novel based on Trinh's family 'warts and all' experience from the fear and devastation of being forced to flee one's own country to refugee status, freedom and gradual acceptance in a totally foreign land. Shock Peace is believed to be the first book written in English by a refugee with firsthand experience of life under the rule of the brutish Vietcong, and an account of the trials and triumphs of refugees who lost and found in a fiction based on fact.… (mais)

: I was in college when Saigon fell and though I was totally against the war, I still remember the images of the Vietnamese people trying to get out of the country before the US troops left. At the end of the war, I was thrilled that it was over and saddened at the number of people who had been killed but I continued to think about all of the people who were left in Saigon and wondered what they were going to face with their new leaders. This book gave me closure to my feelings about the aftermath of the war. It showed me that even though the war for over for America, it wasn't over for the Vietnamese people. Trough the story of Trinh, I learned about the hardships that survivors went through in Vietnam - the cruelty, the food depravation and the daily fear that they lived with. But through all of that, there were people who struggled to survive and find freedom and a better life. Even though the characters in this book are fictional, they were based on the author's life and those of her friends and family. I thought that this was a wonderful book to help people better understand the results of this war (and any war)from a different viewpoint. ( )
