I did not find it believable that a girl between 10-12 years old in the 1930s would think/act as she does. Also many of the characters were stereotypes.


Escape from Camp 14: One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West
Review Date: 9/30/2015


This is an absorbing detailed book which reminds us of the human cost of Communist ideology. North Korea may currently be the most extreme manifestation of what Communism leads to but all communist societies were cruel and nightmarish places to live in to one degree or another.

A very personal,compelling, and detailed account of the Patty Hearst kidnapping in 1974 from the point-of-view of her fiance at the time who was beaten by the kidnappers. It is a historical document, too, in that it records so many aspects of what happened.

The cover of the book quotes the Anniston Star newspaper's review that the book is "honest and deeply moving" and this, in a nutshell, is my opinion, too.
