A New York Times bestseller, the shocking story of one of the few people born in a North Korean political prison to have escaped and survived.

North Korea is isolated and hungry, bankrupt and belligerent. It is also armed with nuclear weapons. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people are being held in its political prison camps, which have existed twice as long as Stalin's Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. Very few born and raised in these camps have escaped. But Shin Donghyuk did.

In Escape from Camp 14, 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.


Correct me if I'm wrong.. New York Times is made in USA, isn't it?
So this story would be like reading a N Korean story about a US citizen escaping to the freedom in N Korea, wouldn't it? Or a jew escaping a nazicamp?
Damn, you took the words out of me mouth. You cannot trust mainstream media who unfortunately is part of the "Political Correctness" movement.

I recommend watching the Vice documentaries on North Korea and by contrast also watch the report from "Russia Today". Admittedly, not everything is fine and dandy in NK but what country is?

What is apparent however is how much the "choosen people" of the west/occident hate NK and that really shines through in the Vice documentaries.
It's not published by The New York Times. The write up is just referring to the best seller list, which is not publisher specific. It's published by Penguin. Not that it's that much difference.
kjhgviyvoiyoi - This book is about the only known person who was born in a north korean workers camp who has escaped and survived to tell the tale.

Like you say it could be compared to a book written by a jew who has survived a nazi concentration camp during WWII.
