The most amazing thing about this book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Escape from Camp 14: One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West (Kindle Edition)
...is that places like Camp 14 still exist and are still guarded by sadists. And the worst of that is what places like Camp 14 do to the children born in them, as Shin (the subject of the book) was.
I find these thoughts terribly depressing. The barbarism just goes on and on.
The author writes that not all of Shin's story can be verified (naturally). But the story jibes with news I've read about North Korea in recent years and so I took it at face value. It's a damned ugly face.
The book is a must read.
