A River in Darkness: One Man's Escape from North Korea by Masaji Ishikawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Some hardship the author has endured. It puts everything into perspective. From a 'must read' perspective this deserves 4 stars. Some episodes are a bit too superhero'ish, but otherwise it's a 5 star book. But the writing style puts it on 3 stars instead. It annoyed me at times, but then I put it back to 4 stars because this story is worth spreading.
I would actually like to see this book as a mandatory read on every school in the western world... 1st year in high-school.
