Great mix of world events and Hugh’s personal journey. Informative yet not too heavy. My only slight criticism is it is read like a news bulletin but that’s what we love about Hugh and I always appreciate a book read by its author. He seems to be a very humanistic and honourable man. Thanks for your journo service!

Devastatingly amazing

Barbara does an amazing job at opening our eyes to the life of North Koreans. Makes me feel so helpless. I couldn’t wait to keep listening each time I had to stop.

I was looking forward to this book helping me but there are way too many mentions of the work 'F**k'.
I didn't get far into the book and just couldn't go any further as it was frustrating. The frequency of this word made it very hard to even follow the point of what the writer was trying to make.
Thank goodness Audible allows you to swap a book for free.

Devastatingly beautiful story. Every moment keeps you wanting more. Sad yet stunning story about the horror that was WWII.
Narration was fantastic as well.

A very different yet beautiful story with many parallels between characters and different time periods.
Although the narrator does a terrible Australian accent, his soothing voice transcends you into a different time and adds to the beauty of this story line.

The narrator is amazing.
The story is very harrowing. The author has researched the story well and is based on real events during WWII.

Love this story and the narrator definitely did it justice.
Everyone needs to read this book if they haven't or read it again if they have.
