    Summary of the Book

    The Orphan Master’s Son is book about a young man, Pak Jun Do, who is the haunted son of a lost mother and a very influential father. His father runs a work camp for orphans, and this is where Jun Do gets his first taste of power. He instantly gets recognized by the superiors in the state for his instincts, loyalty and hard work, and embarks on a journey from where there will be no coming back. Pak Jun Do later becomes a professional kidnapper and has to struggle to stay alive. In a desperate attempt to save the woman he loves, he takes on the role of a rival to Kim Jong IL, the supreme leader of North Korea. The Orphan Master’s Son is a part spine-chilling thriller and a part romantic story that will be loved by the readers.

    Breaks your heart and uplifts it

    It took me more than a month to read this book in its entirety. Its depressing, heartbreaking, Orwellian, and uplifting all at once. For me it turned out to be a love story in essence, on making a supreme emotional connection in a setting where personal identity is discouraged and erased.

    Don't know enough to pass judgement on the political or social reality in North Korea, this would have worked just as well for me in an unamed dystopian land.

    Life in a totalitarian regime

    This book gives an entertaining and devastating view of life in a totalitarian regime. It illuminates the ways thinking get distorted when all information is controlled, and truth is what the leader chooses. It is sad and poignant. My main problem with the book was in accepting the basically good and loving hero. The author does not explore how this caring person developed in a life of almost constant fear, hunger, pain, lack of love, violence, etc.

    Very poor quality paper for 500 bucks and service

    I had purchased this book on flipkart and they said d book would reach me within 2 days (i live in an urban area) but it reached after 6 days and the quality of the paper by Blackswan too is not very good its similar to pirated books quality and they charge tremendous price of 500 bucks for this 4th Estate a far better publisher is offering books with xcellent paper quality at a comparatively cheaper price!!
