My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is widely known how terrible things are in North Korea, but this account of someone who managed to get out of North Korea is a revelation. All of the horror that we may think is North Korea, it is nothing contrasted with the reality portrayed in this biographical account. It is heartbreaking, sad, horrific … and many, many, many more graphic adjectives of unpleasantness. Those poor people – how blessed we are to not suffer what they suffer day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, decade after decade… so very sad.
