Scary times in North Korea,
This review is from: Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag (Paperback)
This is probably one of the scariest books that I have ever read, for three reasons:
1. It all happened while I was quietly minding my own business at school, taking O'levels, playing rugby and generally having a good time.
2. The main aim in the camps seems to have been to keep people alive, in the most miserable conditions.
3. Even when the author escapes he still struggles to remove himself from the shackles of a warped ideaology.
Buy it, enjoy the sadness, the happiness and the incredible strength of the author's family.
