Everyone needs to know what is happening right now in North Korea. The descriptions of children dying and the torture by the guards was horrid but I found it hard to put the book down. Amazing and disturbingly realistic memories about someone who lived in one of the most mysterious nations in the 21st century.

After the family is released, Kang finds hims After his grandfather disappears, Kang and ppyongyang family are visited by the North Korean authorities, loaded on a truck, and trucked to gulag Yodok.

After Kang was warned that the secret police were planning to arrest him, he escaped by crossing the Yalu River into China and then into South Korea. It is these unspeakable atrocities that need to be shared, the world needs to be up to speed re North Korea.

Both books clearly give a picture of the shocking atrocities people experience in these campus. Also, lots of similarities with Mao Zhe Dong’s China. People almost entirely can only be selfish if they wish to survive.

However, in pongyang with the Camp 15 book, the young man in this story comes from a wealthy North Korean family of significant privilege. Work accidents and malnutrition and punishments killed prisoners, adults and children alike, every day.

Both books clearly give a picture of the shocking atrocities people experi Amazing book. Alth This is the second book acuariod life in North Korea that I’ve read recently.
