    In a stunning feat of imagination, Johnson puts us inside Jun Do yep, John Doe , a North Korean orphan who stumbles from poverty to a job as body double for a Hero of the Eternal Revolution The closed world of North Korea revealed here where businessmen are conscripted to work in the rice fields and the ruthless Kim Jong il is still the Dear Leader goes beyond anything Orwell ever imagined The Orphan Master s Son veers from cold ...

    CITIZENS, gather round the individualistic screens of your capitalistically exploited folding computers and other pocket sized computational devices The Dear Reviewer has much omniscient wisdom and many synoptic truths to impart Set aside your Facebook and Twitter feeds and summon every last ounce of patriotic love for and devotion to the Democratic People s Republic of Goodreads in order to focus your cluttered Western minds and screen wo

    This is not an easy book to read It preys on the minds of readers, on the fears and hopes that stem from our deeply ingrained cultural concepts, our habitual comfortable worldview It takes you to the place where you can no longer be sure what is based in reality and what is the result of an absurdist deeply satirical interpretation of it.This is a book that s set in North Korea, and its protagonist is cleverly perhaps overly so named Jun Do that

    The Orphan Master s Son Has No Clothes I d love to take credit for coming up with that beautifully stated, extremely accurate summing up of this awful, awful book, but I can t I suppose, if nothing else, I can boast having married the man who did I wasn t 30 pages into this farce and I m not speaking of the story stylings when it became quite clear that all the praise being heaped upon this pile of literary poo I am forever mindful that kids may be read

    Literature is a fiction that tells a greater truth so somebody wise once said But the truth is a tricky business This epic story set in the Democratic People s Republic of Korea that s the bad one offers frequent reminders of that fact First, there s the question of where the genuinely dire straits of North Koreans end and the semi satirical abstractions begin Did Johnson exaggerate the atrocities Did his fiction indeed tell a greater truth Then there s a rela

    Read it quick before North Korea decides you can t.If I wasn t glad that Kim Jong Il is dead before reading this book, I certainly am now.Pak Jun Do never knew his mother and is raised in the orphanage his father runs Because of this, he is constantly mistaken for an orphan for the rest of his life Eventually Jun Do winds up as one of the tunnel fighters who work in secret passages under the DMZ into South Korea, but he s recruited to be part of a team that goes out

    Adam Johnson s The Orphan Master s Son defies categories and captives the reader s attention end to end We are brought face to face with the brutal inhumanity of the Kim Jong Il dictatorship which the author visited and tried to depict as accurately as possible given the lack of defectors and their testimony But the even deeper story was how much suffering and deprivation humans can endure while remaining human.For another interesting take on North Korea, I would highly rec

    I ll preface this review by saying that, in many ways, this is an excellent novel It s intelligent, rich in symbolism and metaphor, and takes place in one of the most interesting contemporary settings an author could choose It has many moments of terrific insight regarding one of the strangest and most tragic places on Earth I can see why it s getting so much attention.All of that aside, this book did not work for me It doesn t read like a book that was so good that they had to aw

    This is just flat out brilliant An amazing imaginative leap into an unknowable country, one that feels so granular, so meticulously envisioned, that it blew me away There is both heft and humor here.

    This very long, very dark, and highly imaginative work by Adam Johnson forces upon the reader a series of distasteful sensations, only a few of which are horror, fury, hatred, injustice, and revenge But by the end, one also experiences hope, compassion, sincerity, integrity, and love Thoughts surface, submerge, roil in the mind during the days spent reading this huge novel, leaving one as drained and unsettled after a session with it as if one had eaten bitterness Welcome to North Korea If you
