Ru, le premier livre de Kim Thuy, est un best-seller au Québec et en France. Ce livre a vu ses droits vendus dans vingt pays, en plus d'avoir été finaliste de plusieurs prix littéraires, dont le Prix des cinq continents de la francophonie 2010 et le Grand Prix littéraire de la relève Archambault. Il a obtenu le prestigieux prix du Gouverneur général 2010, le grand prix RTL-Lire 2010 et le grand prix du Salon du livre de Montréal 2010.
I would not listen to Ru again. I would prefer to read the book. The recording wasn't very professional; at numerous points I could hear background noise (doors closing, mumbles of conversation) that made me wonder about the person in charge of editing the performance. In addition, there were several instances in which the audio would pause and then repeat the last sentence before continuing.
That being said, the actual story and the performance by the author (who read it) were lovely. It's a shame that there were so many issues with the quality of the recording.
