The Orphan Master’s Son By Adam Johnson (8/8)

I didn’t know what to expect from fiction about North Korea. What I’d read prior to Johnson was memoir and history-truth is stranger than fiction. However, this book did not disappoint. Pak Jun Do tells his own story in an extremely believable voice. When the narrative changes voices to entwine with Jun Do, the story becomes more fantastic, changing from prison memoir to highly evolved espionage thriller. When a famous actress goes missing, what will Jun Do decide? Will he adhere to the mission of the State or the mission of his own conscience?
