📚 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, but is a fantastic read at the same time.. 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 is even funny in places.
My rating: 5/5.
