The realistic horror of North Korea was too much for me. I have traveled in Asian countries (not NK) and it just struck home so much I could see that this is probably an accurate portrayal of life there. It is so horrible that I couldn't take it after 1/2 of the book and just quit. This book is too real.
Probably many will like the book because of that. I just couldn't bear thinking about how these people live every day any more. No thanks.
Great narrator, well written.

Unique. I've never read (Listened to) anything like it.
The guy in the old folks home was hilarious from the start. I replayed parts from this section over and over and kept laughing.
It was an experience. You have to listen to this audio to get the whole deal. Better than ANY movie I've seen in the past year.
SKIP THE MOVIE AND THE BOOK........this one was MADE for audio!
Tossie baby talking to the bull dog Cyril and to her cat Princess Arjumon
The time lag scenes, both with Ned Henry and with Kindle (Verity).
NO NO NO, it is meant to be savored and thought about!
I love sci-fi, and this is that plus so much more! HOWEVER, if you do not appreciate dry subtle British humor, you may not find this funny! I was smiling for days thinking about the scenes in this book. hilarious!
GREAT narration, and frankly, a GREAT story. This series gets BETTER with each book. I LOVE this series. It is not a
I've been to Russia, his accents and gender changes are AWESOME! He really makes listening to this series better than reading it.
