    Incredible Story....

    There are no words to adequately describe the life of Shin Dong-hyuk. Born & raised in one of North Korea's most brutal concentration camps, Shin's tragic life story is well beyond most people's understanding or experience. Shin may have physically escaped the camp but, psychologically, he & thousands of other North Korean Survivors will battle imprisonment in their minds for the rest of their lives - we have no idea how lucky we are. While we can feel empathy & pity, we truly have NO idea what it would be like to have to live Shin's life or struggle to exist in North Korea. Shin's story & continued struggle is complex and unexplainable - you need to read this book!

    Great book

    Its crazy how these horrible things still happen in today's day and age. It is truly heartbreaking to read about the tortures these poor innocent ppl had and still today go through. Even children. I hope someday soon someone will save these ppl and abolish these camps And get rid of the monster who governs this country.

    Heart wrenching

    This book gives a very detailed and horrific look into the country we know so little about. Well written and very emotional.

    Good read

    A little dry sometimes, but educational and eye opening to the hardship faced in North Korea. Shin is a survivor and I wish him inner peace and true happiness in his life.
