I reviewed The Orphan Master's Son in 2012, and it was one of my favorite books of that year. It's not a quick read, but its portrait of daily life in North Korea is captivating, and the plot has twists I didn't see coming. There's even some humor, especially when we readers learn how North Koreans view us. If you haven't read it yet, it's definitely worth your time. I'm glad to see it won the Pulitzer for fiction (awards were announced Monday).
Check out my original review for more details.
