    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 Dong-hyuk did.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Escape from Camp 14 to be better than the print version?

    Read it, and weep. THIS is the "Great vision" for all of mankind by our "Brothers and Sisters" in the communist party.
    The "Great Liberation" under communist ideals - whioch work ONLY for those IN CHARGE.

  • The Gulag Archipelago, Volume II: The Destructive-Labor Camps and The Soul and Barbed Wire

    This second volume in Solzhenitsyn’s narrative chronicles the appalling inhumanity of the Soviets' "Destructive-Labor Camps" and the fate of prisoners in them—felling timber, building canals and railroads, and mining gold without equipment or adequate food or clothing, and subject always to the caprices of the camp authorities. Most tragic of all is the life of the women prisoners and the luckless children they bear.

    Jacob Denhollander says: "Important book, great author, wonderful narrator"

    What made the experience of listening to The Gulag Archipelago, Volume II the most enjoyable?

    Again, in this volume, we see the depths to which a human being can sink to under a tyranical regime. We hear vivid tales, from actual interviews with camp detainees, about conditions, the mass murders, and what people were reduced to in order to either survive, or become one of the NKVD.
    I strongly recommend this work.

    In this masterpiece, Solzhenitsyn has orchestrated thousands of incidents and individual histories into one narrative of unflagging power and momentum. Written in a tone that encompasses Olympian wrath, bitter calm, savage irony, and sheer comedy, it combines history, autobiography, documentary, and political analysis as it examines in its totality the Soviet apparatus of repression from its inception following the October Revolution of 1917.
