An interesting story if you can sort through the noise

At times it is hard to tell if Kenneth wrote this book primarily as a piece of religious propaganda or an account of his time in DPRK. There is a fascinating story and look behind the scenes underneath it, but unfortunately there’s as much fantasy in the religious lessons and anecdotes in this book as there is in the DPRK’s official state history about its leaders. If he ever decides to give up preaching I’m sure he can get a job writing propaganda for the Kim family. It does spoil it a bit to read obviously fabricated stories of miracles and his bizarre conclusions about the meaning behind events, and his condescending attitude towards people who he decides have been brainwashed into idolising and loving their leader (the irony is real). However, the story is unique and if you’re interested in the DPRK and have read more widely much of it seems to check out... and it is one of a kind.

A+ performance

I could listen to Clementine all day. Her narration is hilariously engaging and the content is an articulate and well-constructed account of the position the feminist movement takes on a range of issues affecting society. Nice work

Such an interesting series of lectures. The telling of history through stories makes it so engaging and I learned so much. Only distraction was the narrator’s inability to pronounce the letter H - YUGE!
