Different type of Memoir

by J210 on Mar 28, 2010

It was an interesting book and told the story of North Korea, but the book did not seem to have a real flow of a memoir and if you were following the narrator through their life. It seemed more to just discuss different topics and how they happened during the time period. I enjoy memoirs told more as if they're happening and when the character tells you how they're feeling during that time. I don't think you got the real feel throughout the book.


short but shocking

Short interesting read about the world's strangest place. I real page turner with interesting insights. Only issue is the translation from Korean to French to English makes for some odd sentence structures
