Stunned by this eye-opening account, I found myself confused by my lack of knowledge about what is going on in North Korea. I actually think everyone should read this book to get a glimpse into the injustices that are going on in North Korea similar to Nazi war camps. I simply had no idea.
This book is the true story of Shin who is the only person born into a prison camp in North Korea who has escaped. The story is amazing. The author does an excellent job telling the life of Shin while providing explanations of the political climate in North Korea to give the reader an understanding of Shin's story.
