The Orphan Master's Son - Adam Johnson

That was really intense. 

 

I can see why this book won the Pulitzer for Fiction. I still wondered about the accuracy/fact-checking/reporting that went in before the novel was created-- how does one go about learning the insider details of life in a dictatorship? Still, a fascinating (and intense!) look at life in North Korea.

The Orphan Master's Son - Adam Johnson This was clearly not a book for me, Many times I thought of just abandoning it, but because I hate to do that, I just ploughed on. I didn't like the story, and I didn't like any of the characters. And I thought it was boring!
