1.0 out of 5 stars Truly Awful: Looks like it was made on a photocopier!, 25 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a terrible, terrible book. The claim that it is two volumes is laughable - it's only 70-odd pages and it uses A REALLY LARGE FONT to make up the space on each page. A more sensible size, and this would probably be no more than 20 pages long. With only three jokes per page, this is an all-round very low quality product which I absolutely do NOT recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Waste of Money, 16 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product seemed okay, and then after applying it I peeled off the sticker which is on top of the screen protector which explains how to apply the protector - and it left a rectangular glue stain on the protector. Tried the other protector in the pack - same problem.

It annoys me how expensive these things are in the Apple store, but at least they work. Going for a cheaper product like this was a complete waste of money

3.0 out of 5 stars There are much better books on North Korea, 14 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very keen to read this book, as the story is unique - the tale of a man born inside a North Korean labour camp, as opposed to being sent there, who then successfully escaped. However, I was disappointed. The author stresses how he interviewed the subject for many, many hours - and yet the story is so thin, padded out with context taken from other books on the subject. I have thought that maybe I've read too many books on North Korea, and perhaps had a skewed view as everything seemed familiar. So, after finishing this book I revisited Hyok Kang's 'This is Paradise!' and once again, found it a profoundly disturbing read. I just feel Escape from Camp 14 was not very well done and having purchased the hardback, the large font helps fill what is not a particularly long read. It's still interesting, and it's a very tragic story - but so average in execution. If you're still going to buy this book, please read other books for comparison - This is Paradise, The Aquariums of Pyongjang, and most importantly, Nothing to Envy. These books give far greater insight and context on life in North Korea in my opinion.
