Associate Professor, Doctor, writer Nguyen The Ky said: “The sequel is the transition from patriotism to communism. Ho Chi Minh's mindset and ideology had a very strong and logical innovation. Most importantly, the details of President Ho Chi Minh’s life have been fully portrayed by historical and research papers, but this is a literary work. Literature fictionalizes certain events in his life and his personality. Ho Chi Minh's personality and soul can only be told through literature.”
"Lenh denh bon bien” was released by the Central Council for Theory and Criticism of Literature and Art, the Literature Publishing House, and Lien Viet Culture and Communication Joint Stock Company.
The 3rd volume is expected to debut later this year or early next year. The 1st volume "No nuoc non" (Debt to the nation) was published in 2022.
