I highly recommend this audiobook for anyone who likes to contemplate mind-bending concepts and enjoys pushing the boundaries of physics. There is a fair amount of philosophy and investigating how science approaches the problem of "the meaning of life". I will have to listen to this again just to absorb all the awesome and wild ideas introduced, all backed up with cutting-edge science.
Also, this narrator was one of the best out of the several audiobooks I have downloaded from audible. If only all narrators had his clear, articulate voice.
I came away from this book with a greater understanding of North Korea and a deep emotional attachment to the real people interviewed after hearing about their lives in an oppressive regime. The author gives vivid descriptions - often to the finest, most poignant detail - of barren lives and the courageous people who dared to leave. She follows a few separate people from their lives in North Korea through their defection and on to their new lives in South Korea. Truly amazing journalism and highly recommended for anyone who is curious about what goes on in the last communist dictatorship on the planet.
