A simple narrative style is employed, with a few lyrical passages.
It is a comfort to the reader that Kovaly lived long enough to see her country finally liberated from the shadow of communism following the fall of the Iron Curtain.
The reader can only be very happy that Ms. Kovaly was able to survive and overcome her ordeals and be able to write about her life.
Very good as a personal vignette and certainly an indictment of totalitarian regimes but not scholarly enough to draw political or philosophical conclusions.
