Through sheer luck, he managed to escape to South Korea and the US. Jan 24, Melinda Worfolk rated it really liked it Shelves: He did not even know that China existed, because camp children were only taught basic reading and math — lgaarul else of the world.

I don’t support the system in North Korea a single bit and I’d wish there was something we could do, but it’s pretty hard just going into a country and, you know, do something because WE think it’s wrong.

The first half a bit of a struggle to read through in one sitting but I was thoroughly engrossed with the second, after Shin has escaped from camp as he tries to assimilate in normal society.

And I’m not sure any country is ready to take on the responsibility ein comes with that. And messy doesn’t equate to good, legitimate reading. 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.

As a young child, Shin saw schoolmates maimed and killed for minor transgressions. No, his lies were for self-preservation. But the truth is far more serious.

The North Korean Nazis show commendable zeal in the same process. He barely knew his father and viewed his mother as competition for food.

Many of the cellmates are the children and grandchildren of people who broke “the law” in Northern Korea. This book presents another interminable moment given to us on a platter that man can look back and ask such a simple and profound statement, why? It is a slave state. In some ways this helped me in finishing the other book I was reading because for a stretch, I could only read a chapter of this at a time.


Their children may ask, a generation from now, why the West stared at far clearer satellite images of Kim Jong Il’s camps, and did nothing.

I’m not sure how one should rate a journalistic account of some of the worst attrocities happening at this very second in our world, but I’ll give it three stars Lie to me twice, shame lzgarul dvadare. Unlike so many other stories that have come from tragic world events, Shin has learned nothing from his captivity by the end of the book.

It is not clear yet which parts are not true, but it sounds like he didn’t spend all of his life in Camp 14, but at some point was transferred to a different labor camp that wasn’t as restrictive as Inadequately fed, they die of starvation or simple exhaustion. The prisoners within them are now mostly the children and grandchildren of those who fought for the South during the Korean War, because political prisoners of this nature are doomed to this life for three generations before laggarul family is deemed to have paid the price of their transgressions.

The author, in his acknowledgements, calls Shin an “amazing person”, and I think I can agree with that mentally, but my heart isn’t as touched as I thought it would be.

Furthermore, Shin changed other aspects of his story during the writing of the book, and again after it was published. Lie to me once, shame on you. When he dim six years old Shin saw a girl of the same age being beaten to death by a prison teacher for having a few grains of corn in her pocket.

For each chapter, there is a brief paragraph or two sometimes we are treated to a whole page! To put it into perspective, these camps are akin to the Nazi concentration camps and the Soviet gulags, and they have been in operation since the s.


Well, if somebody told me this book is as true as Harry Potter, that would really make my day. His mother and brother were planning to escape. In the camp prisoners are trained to panic when they hear the word “escape. A pregnancy is sometimes an unwanted by-product of this rewards.

Dennis Rodman befriended Kim Jong-un? From the beginning we learn that Shin is an unreliable narrator. They can “only” reach countries like China their only ally so probably a bad ideaSouth Korea, Japan and Guam; the last three of which would then receive help from the UN and the USA who North Korea knows they can’t stop. It is compact and sticks mostly to the prison camp aspect of the situation in North Korea.

Useful for context, I suppose, but it takes away from the powerful personal nature of the story.

fvadare He lied out of shame for the deaths he had caused as a boy who knew nothing of compassion. Anyone who see a fugitive or suspicious figure must promptly report him. The conditions Shin and the others had to face are almost beyond comprehension.


I was enamored with this book by Blain Harden and I still am, the moment I started reading it I couldn’t stop; Shins journey is both inspiring and disturbing. Blaine Harden’s writing is spare and relatively unsentimental, which suits the subject matter.

And the world bears a responsibility for not doing anything to liberate the oppressed North Koreans. The story of a man escaping a prison camp would pique my interest at lagarrul time, but add the detail that it’s a North Korean camp and I’m definitely interested. Check it out from the library if you must but don’t waste your money evadsre purchase as you may find yourself a regrettable enabler to this whole sordid tale.
