This book was very well written..
Ms. Demick skillfully weaves together stories of six North Korean refugees into a narrative which portrays life in North Korea from WWII to the present.
Amazing how people can live in such desperate circumstances and be kept in the dark about how the rest of the world lives so much better.
Extremely well researched book about the lives of several North Koreans before and after defection. It's shocking that a place like North Korea can exist in our world.Published 1 hour ago by Candice Gottlieb
