  1. I am Korean Born in Seoul but raised in America since age 11 My grandparents were from North Korea so I grew up hearing lot of stories I would hear stories about North Korea after the war, their communist ways, people starving but I could not have imagined what exactly went on until I read this book I could not stop reading once I started I held onto my breath, cried and cheered as I read this book This book will open your eyes and make you really appreciate for everything in life


  2. The book has four main parts 1 The author s life in North Korea 2 The author s life living as an illegal alien within China 3 The author s adaptation to life in South Korea, whose culture was markedly different from North Korean culture 4 The author s efforts to get her mother and brother from North Korea to South Korea.While the book gives the reader a basic idea of what life is like living in North Korea, it was the author s determination, perseverance and resourcefulness that leaps off the pa [...]


  3. I ve read several accounts of escaping from North korea This is a good one because it covers several subjects that are not covered in other books For example hyeonseo grew up right on the border next to the Yalu river There is extensive discussion of cross border smuggling in the book as her mother and other relatives were participants in this trade Being so close to the border they could also get Chinese cell phone service and calls could be made to North Korea using Chinese cells The other thi [...]


  4. I struggled to complete this book because I was never drawn into the story or the main character Never once did I care about her fate Never once did I care whether or not she made it to her ever changing destinations So much of it was superficial an unemotional retelling and seemed contrived in the way that although she claimed to be poor, she always had money to pay for fake IDs, brokers, travel, etc Also, there was always someone to help her when she needed it, even when she was desperate Coul [...]


  5. I had always been curious about North Korea, having heard about it in the news, and I thought this book would be interesting It does have vivid descriptions of life in North Korea It also turns out to be suspenseful and emotionally engaging Once I started reading this book, I did not want to stop until I was done.The book is divided into parts, describing the author s life in North Korea, then her life in China an entire decade , escape to South Korea, and finally, the ordeal of getting her moth [...]


  6. I don t think I ve encountered such an emotionally moving book, than a few times I ve verbally said oh no before something bad happens and dreaded to read on, but unable to resist It s so incredibly heartbreaking and yet enlightening to hear about the terrors of the North Korean regime from a woman who was once loyal to it, only to realise the truth about her country and escape Genuinely, every person NEEDS to read this book because it will make you feel so incredibly lucky to be living a free l [...]


  7. A very well written book which exposes some of the difficulties faced by the poor inhabitants of North Korea as well as the problems of anyone trying to escape from the regime Hyeon Seo Lee has had ups and downs in her young life than most of us have during three times her time on the planet The whole book kept me enthralled throughout and due to the fairly short chapters was easy to pick up and put down without losing track of what had already gone I knew little about Korea, North or South unti [...]
