    Heard the interview with Harden on NPR, then downloaded the book. After finishing it in 2 days, I’m now recommending it to friends and family. Humans can enact incredible cruelty on each other – but can endure it as well. Shin’s story is incredible and further focuses the need to end the repressive regime in North Korea.

    For another incredible tale of survival and? the human spirit I also recommend, “The Long Walk” ft. S?awomir Rawicz and his escape from a Russian gulag.
