Characters ↠ The Girl with Seven Names A North Korean Defector’s Story Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free An extraordinary insight into life under one of the world’s most ruthless and secretive dictatorships – and the story of one woman’s terrifying struggle to avoid capturerepatriation and guide her family to freedomAs a child growing up in North Korea Hyeonseo Lee was one of millions trapped by a secretive and brutal totalitarian regime Her home on the border with China gave her some exposure to the world beyond the confines of the Hermit Kingdom and as the famine of the 1990s struck she began to wonder uestion and to realise that she had been brainwashed h. In North Korea the only laws that truly matter and for which extreme penalties are imposed if they are broken touch on loyalty to the Kim dynasty Stunning Absolutely stunning Hyeonseo Lee grew up as a loyal and happy citizen of North Korea the greatest country on earthLee grew up believing that her leaders were gods that they can be in two places at once that stars appeared in the sky when they were born that they single handedly led their people to victorySure food was a bit scarce and there was always the danger of informers but westerners were starving in the streets and US soldiers used South Korean children as target practiceThe older she grew the those beliefs began to crash around her One of the tragedies of North Korea is that everyone wears a mask which they let slip at their peril Thanks to her mother s smuggling business Lee was exposed to Chinese goods fashion and Korean music All these things were deeply puzzling if North Korea was the greatest then how could these other countries produce such things Kindness toward strangers is rare in North Korea There is risk in helping others The irony was that by forcing us to be good citizens the state made accusers and informers of us all When she turned seventeen Lee decides that she will cross over to China just once to see what it was likeonly for her brief trip to turn into a decade long journey She could never return but with rumors circling that her family is in jeopardy Lee knows that she will have to go backand get everyone she can out This is when I understood that we can do without almost anything our home even our country But we will never do without other people and we will never do without family I am absolutely blown away and completely disgusted with the way North Korea isReading about her struggles and what she overcame was riveting I just can t get over how terrible her life was and the emotional upheaval she went through to get outIt is one thing to read the bland newspaper headlines or news hosts reading off their prompts and it is completely a different thing to read a personal struggle Her writing was unapologetically honest and portrayed a heartfelt depiction of her personal battles Lee s life was truly amazing I cannot do it justiceAudiobook CommentsRead by Josie Dunn who gave it just the right tone and inflection Beautifully readYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

Characters ↠ The Girl with Seven Names A North Korean Defector’s Story Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Er entire life Given the repression poverty and starvation she witnessed surely her country could not be as she had been told “the best on the planet”Aged seventeen she decided to escape North Korea She could not have imagined that it would be twelve years before she was reunited with her familyShe could not return since rumours of her escape were spreading and she and her family could incur the punishments of the government authorities – involving imprisonment torture and possible public execution Hyeonseo instead remained in China and rapidly learned Ch. By the time she turned 29 Hyeonseo Lee had spent a decade living on the run and in hiding She had escaped a brothel survived a kidnapping run away from a loveless engagement and changed her name four times She was attacked on the street robbed conned and arrested than onceShe is one of the lucky onesHyeonseo Lee was born in North Korea under a different name to a family with good songbun NK s caste system But even being one of the lucky ones in North Korea means that Lee witnessed her first public execution at seven years old Like all citizens starting in elementary school she was forced to partake in weekly tattletale sessions where one has to confess to a crime or accuse someone else of one It could be as simple and deadly serious as I don t think about the Dear Leader enough times during the day While her family had food in part because of her industrious and savvy mother she witnessed others starving to death during the 1990s famine that killed hundreds of thousandsEven under these conditions when Lee escapes it s purely a matter of curiosity Her family lives in a town directly across from China along the narrowest part of the river that separates the two countries She plans to turn around and come right back but things don t work out that wayBut it s not freedom that necessarily waits for her beyond the border The Chinese government is dogged about tracking down illegal North Koreans and returning them to their fate back home In many ways Lee s life in China is as arduous as her life in North Korea South Korea gives citizenship for all NK asylum seekers but getting there isn t easy Lee finally makes it and without suffering abuse in a Laotian prison like so many others women particularly desperately trying to get to SeoulYup Hyeonseo Lee is one of the lucky ones And I ve never felt so damn privileged in my lifeI really enjoyed this book At times Lee s storytelling is a little flat and her decision to end each chapter with a cliff hanger that gets resolved on the very next page is a little odd This is a great book for anyone looking to learn about North Korea or just read an interesting memoir 45 stars

Hyeonseo Lee à 2 Characters

Characters ↠ The Girl with Seven Names A North Korean Defector’s Story Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Inese in an effort to adapt and survive Twelve years and two lifetimes later she would return to the North Korean border in a daring mission to spirit her mother and brother to South Korea on one of the most arduous costly and dangerous journeys imaginableThis is the uniue story not only of Hyeonseo’s escape from the darkness into the light but also of her coming of age education and the resolve she found to rebuild her life – not once but twice – first in China then in South Korea Strong brave and elouent this memoir is a triumph of her remarkable spirit. I did enjoy this but I also feel like she made a lot of really incredibly dumb choices that really made no sense For example she stayed with relatives in China for 2 whole years and didn t think of maybe using that time to get a job to save money or to learn a vocation Then she runs away penniless on the spur of the moment and has no plan of what to do You had 2 years to think about it and relied on the kindness of distant relatives to support you but you didn t think ahead of what to do nextShe seemed really naive in general especially when she constantly turned to brokers for help even though she clearly says again and again she didn t trust them She was incredibly lucky and fortunate to have people around her who had a lot of money to constantly bail her out and those connections clearly helped herAlso the fact that she didn t even know at first that people were starving in the 90s in N Korea and she was eating meat daily makes it clear that she lived a very insulated life there and probably had a very different experience from the average N Korean I d really love to know her mother s story because to be honest she sounds like a much tougher cookie than her daughter cleverly supporting her 2 children and getting them through famine as a single mother Wow hats off to herI did enjoy this book because I m fascinated with any books from N Korean defectors in general but my sympathies with her were limited I m glad she got out and that she was able to help her family as well but this is probably not the experience of most N Korean defectors I do wish her all the best and hope people learn about what is going on in N Korea
