Twilight Territory dedicates more space to the experiences of civilians than the experiences of soldiers on the battlefield. Did the novel illuminate anything about the effects of war on colonized countries and citizens for you? Why do you think the author chose to focus on everyday people’s lives?

Pham does an excellent job of enlightening the reader to the harsh realities of occupation. While the USA has been involved in numerous wars, we average citizens have no idea what it is really like because it’s so “far away” and for the most part does not impact our daily lives – unless a loved one is serving. I hope we never find out how our perspectives might change.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
