O diminish the author s experiences The descriptions of the torture she endured at the hands of North Korean officials
were haunting and her story is a good example to illustrate how many innocent people haunting and her story is a good example to illustrate how many innocent people being tormented under Kim Jong il s regime Unfortunately I am not surprised that this book was published it is a propaganda text financed by a Christian organization dedicated to modern day martyrs I was appalled at how blatantly this book was aimed at converting people to Christianity and insulted by the fact Lee s survival was attributed solely to the grace of God Lee even mentions that Christians in her camp who were murdered with boiling oil and yet she or likely her translators feels that she was spared in order to be a Christian If God saved her why doesn t he save all of the other people in the camps who are being tort This book was difficult to read because of the brutality and horror in it but is was worth reading and I hope I will not be the same or forget what I have read Life is very fragile and at the same time the human body can endure unimaginable difficulties Though this book takes place in the 1980s and 1990s what is written is still happening today in North Korea I recommend this book as it will help anyone who reads it to really put their lives into perspective I also hope that as it is read it will give you a deeper desire to pray for others For the most part this is indeed a worthwhile and heart wrenching book It s a true horror story in every sense of the word Most of the book is ustly spent on the author s experience and had she simply included her belief system as an organic part of the story I wouldn t have minded But I guess I wasn t paying close enough attention to notice the old bait and switch tactic often employed by the evangelical press hook an unsuspecting and fresh audience with a really great martyr story as reviewer Valerie correctly pointed out then reel them in with your conversion appeal The statement that North Korea needs Jesus over food seems like a sales pitch hawked to an already victimized woman by a overzealous exploitative religious publisher If such publishers acted honestly and wanted to sell their come to Jesus message as much as they claim to then why not come right out and include that in the book s descriptions They were careful not to let their end of the book altar call interfere too much with the story in spite of my focus on it but as my only complaint it s a pretty big pet peev.

review Ë E-book, or Kindle E-pub Õ Soon Ok LeeThis true account of a woman held captive in a work camp in North Korea is an extremely simple read I had to read this book for one of my Asian history courses in college and although I m not a fan of most books forced upon me in school I actually found this book interesting and horrifying A very HARD read A graphic story of unending pain torture and trauma of a woman falsely accused and imprisoned in her country of North Korea note many chapters tell many stories of torture and death of prisoners The story is written understandably to reveal the insanity and brutality of the regime in the late 80s and early 90s and brutality of the regime in the late 80s and early 90s is not valued and every slight is assumed to be treason and worthy of death The story also documents her escape from NK and her conversion to Christianity I would have liked to hear a bit of how she managed trauma symptoms after 6 years of prison this is a really eye opener it really touched me she was told she could leave prison to uote They all looked up at me at onceTheir eyes were glowing with heavenly lightI knew their eyes were telling me When you get out of prison be a witness for us You are not going out ust to live a better life You are going out to tell about the real hell that exists in here They were begging me to tell about there faith and witness about alll that they were sufferingThat is what their eyes reflected to me Ican never forget the sight of those pleading eyes end uote as i read this i was listening to newsboys the song called there will be a day when every knee will bow i started to cry i have to admit really asome book While a significant portion of the book is spent relating short histories of many individual people the author met while in North Korea s prisons the overall book is a valuable read It details torture methods routinely used to force prisoners to sign self incriminating confessions to cover the misdeeds of their superiors None of the thousands of prisoners the author met had actually broken the law but they had usually gotten in the way of a higher official doing so The author documents the unbelievably torturous conditions prisoners are forced yes AREcurrently forced to work underWhat I found most interesting was her account of the mental path she took as she moved from worshiping the party she had been born and raised under to hating the very thought of the propaganda that had shaped her stilted view of the world As she discovers bit by bit that every piece of information she has ev.

Short Of Gut Wrenching As Many Ofof gut wrenching As many of types of stories I ve read they never cease to shock me It truly is an astonishing way to have to try to surviveBut let me get to the reasons I almost put this book down before even getting in to the actual story At the End Of Chapter One of chapter one author is talking about living in South Korea and sending rice to the North and here is an actual uote from the book But important than rice is to send the love of God to them I couldn t believe what I had ust read Does this women who has seen her people inside and outside of North Korean prisons starving to death really believe thatWhat I m getting at is that this book and it s author have a very backhanded way of trying to preach Christianity to the reader It s not ust a part of her story She goes out of her way in many instances to make religious comments and uote the bible And although I feel deeply sorry that these kinds of atrocities go on in our world still I also feel deeply sorry that this poor woman go on in our world still I also feel deeply sorry that this poor woman from one brainwashed state of mind to another Because actually believing that sending the love of God to a starving nation is better than sending real food and sustenance is ust being brainwashed in a whole new way This is a powerful book It is very graphic it is not for the faint of heart I didn t like it as well as The Hiding Place or To Destroy you is no Loss but her story is no less important It is especially relevant given the two reporters in the news right now who may be sentenced to a North Korea a very sad book filled with detailsof life in a north korean prison the details seem too horrible to be true but based on what I ve read in other books they very well likely are true it is written from a christian perspective so there are phrases in there that could turn off the non christian or atheist still it is good to read and understand and it helps the reader see the role of faith in difficult situations even if you don t believe that a god was responsible for her surviving you can see the effect it had on others in rising to a higher purpose to maintain their humanness and to rise above a system that dehumanizes everyone in its power Though I only gave this book two stars my usual rating for books I m surprised got published I don t want Ry The Eyes of Texas Wikipedia The Eyes of Texas is the school spirit song of the University of Texas at AustinIt is set to the tune of I've Been Working on the RailroadStudents faculty staff and alumni of the University sing the song at Longhorn sports games before the fireworks and other events The Eyes Of Dorota Kravjanska | The American The Eyes Of Dorota Kravjanska Dorota Kravjanska taken from her children and thrown into prison in the s by the communist regime because she was a practicing Catholic Photo by Timotej The Eyes of Skettis uest World of Warcraft The eyes are located on the main circular balcony near the top of the trees Comment by Mikalia This uest is still available within the game I Alien Commanders Bride (Draconians, just picked it up Maybe they took it out and put it back in but it's there Comment by Nelwack spoke with Rilka but didnt get the uest Comment by pessimvs The eyes are both sitting on top of these green carpets at the top level of the towers Eye Wikipedia Eyes are organs of the visual systemThey provide animals with vision the ability to receive and process visual detail as well as enabling several photo response functions that are independent of visionEyes detect light and convert it into electro chemical impulses in neuronsIn higher organisms the eye is a complex optical system which collects light from the surrounding environment Eyes of the Goa'uld Stargate Wiki The Eyes of the Goa'uld were six crystals given to powerful System Lords after they defeated Anubis Individually the eyes were powerful but together their power increased tenfold Anubis eventually gathered the Eyes using them to power a superweapon onboard his mothership The Eyes were destroyed when the Tau'ri managed to destroy the weapon's power core when Anubis attempted to Chuck Norris – The Eyes of the Ranger Lyrics | The Eyes of the Ranger Lyrics In the eyes of a ranger The unsuspecting stranger Had better know the truth of wrong from right 'Cause the eyes of a ranger are upon you Any.
