Book review: In Order to Live

Recently finished: In Order to Live, A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom by Yeonmi Park 📚.

This memoir is honest, heart-breaking and hard-hitting.

It shows the things we take for granted, say, being able to eat eggs in morning (Park mentions, they’d eat eggs once or twice a year (!!) in N.Korea) to basic human rights and freedom, are far more valuable than we presume. Despite its heavy subject, the book reads like a thriller and oddly, is even funny in places.

My rating: 5/5.
