Rezension:

As with Escape from Camp 14, [Harden's] new book can read like a thriller. Financial Times Harden weaves the story of No, the pilot, and Kim, the tyrant, into a fascinating retelling of a tale from the early years of the Cold War ... No's life, the heart of the book, captivates. New York Times A riveting book that makes the history of North Korea accessible to the general reader. Wall Street Journal Harden delivers another page-turner about a North Korean who got out alive, despite staggering odds, in this real-life thriller that unfolds during the Korean War ... Harden weaves together narratives of "Great Leader" Kim Il Sung and No Kum Sok, who harbored a childhood dream of coming to the U.S., even though "at 19 he became the youngest jet fighter pilot on either side of the Korean War." ... With access to No and newly released intelligence, Harden presents fresh insights into North Korea. Publishers Weekly There's no country on Earth quite like the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or North Korea ... The place exists; it's in our consciousness, occasionally in our nightmares and, now and again, in the news - but what is this thing called North Korea? ... Blaine Harden has done more than anyone else to bring the country to a mass audience. Washington Post Even readers who think they know about the Korean War will find things in this book that will surprise them. Seattle Times
