A sad story about survival through any means possible given unimaginable situations. The author not only survived, but also showed her courage to relive her experiences through her writings and live presentations, despite knowing how it could adversely affect her reputation and status as a respectable woman. The narrator reads with a timid Korean accent, which provided a better picture of the author's experiences as a defenseless naive victim. I highly recommend reading or listening to this book, but do it when you are in the right frame of mind to listen to a very sad tale, but with an uplifting ending.
One of the best books I’ve read - This rates right up there with The Hiding Place. What this gal went through and lived through is unimaginable to the average American. It gives much needed light to trafficking.
Incredible, gut wrenching, inspiring, eye opening. One of the most powerful books I’ve ever read!!!
Tragic but very good book
I love this book and the narrator did an amazing job
Very well written, harrowing account of one girls amazing journey out of North Korea. Her troubles are so well depicted that I wanted so badly for her to have a happy ending or even the smallest joy, which she eventually finds in the end after a lifetime of indescribable hardship. Great read that should definitely win awards for brave writing.
An informative account of the atrocities in NK. What a horrible place to live, well one is not really living but they are being directed on how to live. The sex trade is all over the world and not just China but the life for the NK defectors is even more difficult when they leave NK. I learned a lot about the culture of NK and partly China but grateful to see South Korea embrace these defectors. The author endured a lot but has shown that even under the worst possible conditions, something good can come out. Definitely recommend this book. There is no other regime like NK in this world and I just don't see why the US wants to appease them before they change their behavior and treat their people with dignity. P.S. the book was so good that often I would want to return to driving so I can listen to more of the book.
After listening to this book, I went out and got two as gifts. It's one of those books that stays with you.
