Críticas:

[A] remarkable debut novel ... His book fills a void in the literature, giving voice to the previously voiceless ... An absurdist tour de force that might have been written by a Kafka or Genet (New York Times Book Review)

Extraordinary ... Surely a new classic of war fiction ... [Nguyen] has written a cerebral thriller around a desperate expat story that confronts the existential dilemmas of our age ... I haven't read anything since Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four that illustrates so palpably how a patient tyrant, unmoored from all human constraint, can reduce a man's mind to liquid (Washington Post)

This debut is a page-turner (read: everybody will finish) that makes you reconsider the Vietnam War ... Nguyen's darkly comic novel offers a point of view about American culture that we've rarely seen (Oprah.com (Oprah’s Book Club Suggestions))

The satire is delicious (New Yorker)

The Sympathizer reads as part literary historical fiction, part espionage thriller and part satire. Nguyen knows of what he writes (Los Angeles Times)

An important new perspective on the Vietnam War . . . The Sympathizer will both startle and grip you (BuzzFeed)

An early frontrunner for debut novel of the year (Flavorwire (10 Must-Read Books for April))

I cannot remember the last time I read a novel whose protagonist I liked so much. Smart, funny, and self-critical, with a keen sense of when to let a story speak for itself ... [Nguyen] proves a gifted and bold satirist (Barnes & Noble Review)

Arresting . . . One of the best pieces of fiction about the Vietnam war-and by a Vietnamese. . . . Stunning . . . Could it be that Nguyen has captured the shape of the devolution of war itself, from grand ambition to human ruin? . . . One of the finest novels of the Vietnam War published in recent years (Daily Beast)

Read this novel with care; it is easy to read, wry, ironic, wise, and captivating, but it could change not only your outlook on the Vietnam War, but your outlook on what you believe about politics and ideology in general. It does what the best of literature does, expands your consciousness beyond the limitations of your body and individual circumstances (Karl Marlantes, author of Matterhorn and What It Is Like to Go to War)
