North Korea is isolated and hungry, bankrupt and belligerent. Very few born and raised in its political prison camps have escaped--but Shin Dong-hyuk did. Acclaimed journalist Blaine Harden tells the story of Shin Dong-hyuk and, through the lens of Shin's life, unlocks the secrets of the world's most repressive totalitarian state. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence: he saw his mother as a competitor for food, guards raised him to be a snitch, and he witnessed the execution of his own family. Through Harden's harrowing narrative of Shin's life and remarkable escape, he offers an unequaled inside account of one of the world's darkest nations and a riveting tale of endurance, courage, and survival.

When I listened to this story, my overwhelming reaction was "Can't we do anything to help these people?" Anyone interested in knowing more about what is happening in North Korea should read this book.

Hard to say the you "enjoyed" the book, given it's content, but it was indeed a major eye-opener to some terrifying realities in North Korea.
It is indeed something that we should be exposed to - just to appreciate all that we have in our own lives.
