I've made it more than halfway through this book and I'm done. I can't do it anymore. It's not just that the author is so bad at writing women and so obsessed with breasts that his female POV character has checked her breasts twice, so far, to establ ...more

This was a really interesting look into what life is like for someone who grew up in North Korea and then fled to countries that are not welcoming to asylum seekers. Her story was harrowing, despite her have many more allies and resources than the av ...more
