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.
Of the hundreds upon hundreds of nonfiction books I've read, this is probably my favorite. So well written and so eye opening. Perfectly woven together.Published 1 day ago by John B
