Narrator Maureen Taylor voices this political memoir in a soft, breathy voice. Her gentle delivery of difficult subject matter helps listeners process the horrors of the author's past, which led to her present-day politics. At the same time, Taylor's straightforward tone and consistent pacing emphasize the audiobook's solemnity. Author Yeonmi Park defected from North Korea in 2007, never imagining that the freedom she sought in America would be as full of the same hypocrisies and authoritarianism as the regime she left behind. This right-wing memoir details the author's personal experiences while attending Columbia University, where, in Park's view, students received praise for regurgitating their professors' political opinions, rather than their own ability to hold a critical discussion. Taylor's approachable performance embodies the author's sentiments. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2023]
