  1. I had read The Rent Collector several years ago and had loved it I actually started reading it around 4 in the afternoon and finished it at about 1 30 am the next morning I just couldn t put it down I decided then that when it was our turn to choose the book for our Book Group meeting, sooner or later, this would be it Generally we don t have unanimity on whether a book was enjoyable or important, and those discussions are always very lively But when we all love a book, the discussion seems to m [...]


  2. the premise was what drew me to buy the book but after reading a dozen pages, the writing was so upper white I knew the voice was not Cambodian I feel the author did a grave disservice to the people in the story by adopting their voice to tell what is an important story I just could not get past the white male American voice pretending to be the voice of a female Cambodian trapped in a life at the dump the story and its true characters deserve better Ugh I see this book receives high ratings, bu [...]


  3. This book is a puzzle It takes place on a giant garbage dump in Cambodia, a prescription for a miserable life, but the book itself is surprising gentle, and up lifting A young family struggles daily to pick trash to earn enough to feed themselves each day, but through curiosity, perseverance, and luck, a peaceful story emerges Readers will learn a bit about Cambodian history, Buddha, the definition of literature, and the lessons taught by some of the great writers of Western and Eastern civiliza [...]


  4. Although THE RENT COLLECTOR is fiction, the inspiration for this book is the documentary film RIVER OF VICTORY The story is set in Cambodia just after the decline of the Khmer Rouge regime The two main characters, Sang Ly and her husband live in Stung Meanchey, a garbage dump, and to survive they pick through truckloads of trash everyday, looking for things they can sell As you can imagine, the dump is filthy and dangerous, and life is uncertain Sang Ly s young son Nisay s health suffers from li [...]


  5. This book s strength is in its setting, a municipal waste dump Stung Meanchey in Cambodia, where families support themselves by picking trash When I started this book I had expected it might have the richness and depth of Behind the Beautiful Forevers nonfiction set in an undercity of Mumbai The Rent Collector is a much lighter and less daring book, even though it s fictional Instead, the author s stated goal in writing the book was to imagine what the introduction of literacy would be to the in [...]


  6. While it might sound odd to say that I love a book set in a garbage dump in Phnom Penh, it s true Sang Ly, Ki Lim, and little Nisay live at Stung Meanchey, a garbage dump covering over 100 acres Ki is a picker, someone who picks through filthy trash in hopes of finding treasures he can sell to buy food for his family, and Sang Ly is his young wife and the mother of their son Nisay.Despite the putrid smells, unsettling sights, and the unpredictability of their lives, the two never complain about [...]


  7. The book is a moving fictional novel about a lady who has lived a life spanning from before the Khmer Rouge period to modern day Cambodia.It is beautifully written, in that much of character development and the story is told by alternate literature which is a metaphor for the various character s lives This is perhaps what I loved about the book the most.I have given the book 5 star because I felt myself moved and touched by the characters and I think it also makes us reflect on how Cambodia s po [...]


  8. Tragic that people live this way, beggars belief I found the writing a little tedious, but it did give insight into how others survive in what daily becomes a and difficult world.
