Nor do Shin or Harden. The description of the horrible control I rate this book five stars not because it’s beautiful literature or great story telling, but because it is a huge eye opener and important information.

This included The story of a man escaping a prison camp would pique my interest at any time, but add the detail that it’s a North Korean camp and I’m definitely interested. For each chapter, there is a brief paragraph or two sometimes we are treated to a whole page! He was always so hungry and miserable, that his whole goal in life, his main fantasy, was waling into a restaurant to eat some grilled meat. Ostensibly getting rid of families, rather than individuals, considered undesirable by the regime, in actuality slave labour for the State.

Lists with This Book. Wrong doing, wrong thinking, wrong knowledge, wrong background; it all went in to the metaphysical stew. Apr 12, Ana rated it liked it Shelves: Enough to make this casual reader curious about the rest of the story, about the Kim dynasty and what sparked this collective, for lack of a better term, insanity.

His father was a political prisoner because his brothers defected to South Korea in the s. According to state law, if a family member tries to escape or defect, everyone else in evsdare family will be punished, even if they knew nothing about it. Maybe there’s a similarity with children loving dinosaurs: Entire Families are doomed because of the real or imagined actions of one, and apparently treason must be wiped out over three generations.

Beyond the workplace, there must be no intermingling between the sexes for personal reasons.


In Shin’s case by the end of the book, he has learned only to lie continually and be ungrateful The same with once he has escaped–he doesn’t really take any initiative or responsibility in his own life, doesn’t want to listen to anyone who is willing to help him, etc. Not an easy book t Ostensibly getting rid of families, rather than individuals, considered undesirable by the regime, in actuality slave labour for the State.

He still has the scars. Overall, I’d recommend this to anyone interested in North Korea, who is not put off by graphic details and brutal descriptions.

And the political prison camps in North Korea have existed twice as long as Stalins Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps, and there’s no end in site of the betweenandpeople who live in those camps.

Shin was born and raised in Camp 14, one of worst of the 18 that NK has. He still has the evaxare. And as an American who can’t even imagine what it would be like be born and raised in an environment of such hatred and fear, I am probably biased in ways that I don’t even understand. That could perhaps be due to the style of the book; there are a lot of times when the author interjects information from other sources, I think to vin evidence of the veracity of Shin’s story, but the fact that he keeps constantly trying to prove it and dinn us away from Shin creates a distance that can be a little jolting.


Every day life in dkn camps is cut-throat, grueling and harsh. I think Shin’s story is an important one, but the way that it’s presented makes it a little tough to really connect with.

NK knows exactly who gets into the country, for how long they are staying and are generally monitoring their every move. The conditions Shin and the others had to face are almost beyond comprehension. View all 29 comments. Nuke the country and kill thousands, if not millions of innocent people?

In SK, only the language is familiar, and even that has diverged significantly in recent decades. This was how Shin came to be born into the camp. Hopefully Shin’s story will make people more aware of and more understanding of what’s going on in North Korea so these camps will be stopped and closed. Prisoners must genuinely repent of their errors. View all 57 comments. The place is North Korea, a concentration camp, to be more exact. But the truth is far more serious.
