Editorial Reviews

From Bookforum

Blaine Harden's chronicle of Shin Dong-hyuk's life in a North Korean prison camp and his eventual escape is a slim, searing, humble book—as close to perfect as these volumes of anguished testimony can be. — Blaine Harden

Review

''If you have a soul, you will be changed forever by Blaine Harden's Escape from Camp 14 . . . Harden masterfully allows us to know Shin, not as a giant but as a man, struggling to understand what was done to him and what he was forced to do to survive. By doing so, Escape from Camp 14 stands as a searing indictment of a depraved regime and a tribute to all those who cling to their humanity in the face of evil.'' --Mitchell Zuckoff, New York Times bestselling author of Lost in Shangri-La

''This is a story unlike any other . . . More so than any other book on North Korea, including my own, Escape from Camp 14 exposes the cruelty that is the underpinning of Kim Jong Il's regime. Blaine Harden, a veteran foreign correspondent from the Washington Post, tells this story masterfully . . . The integrity of this book shines through on every page.'' --Barbara Demick, author of Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea

''With a protagonist born into a life of backbreaking labor, cutthroat rivalries, and a nearly complete absence of human affection, Harden's book reads like a dystopian thriller. But this isn't fiction -- it's the biography of Shin Dong-hyuk.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Mr. Shin's story, at times painful to read, recounts his physical and psychological journey from a lifetime of imprisonment in a closed and unfeeling prison society to the joys and challenges of life in a free society where he can live like a human being.'' --Kongdan Oh, coauthor of The Hidden People of North Korea: Everyday Life in the Hermit Kingdom

''Through the extraordinary arc of Shin's life, Harden illuminates the North Korea that exists beyond the headlines and creates a moving testament to one man's struggle to retrieve his own lost humanity.'' --Marcus Noland, coauthor of Witness to Transformation: Refugee Insights into North Korea
