THE GREAT LEADER AND THE FIGHTER PILOT The True Story of the Tyrant Who Created North Korea and the Young Lieutenant Who Stole His Way to Freedom

by | Read by Mark Bramhall

History • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

In a fascinating audiobook that exposes more of secretive and repressive North Korea, Mark Bramhall demonstrates his narrative expertise with a performance in which he wisely allows the story itself to take center stage. His presentation is clean and clear with a crisp pace that allows the listener time to absorb all the intriguing detail packed into this chronicle while still advancing the text smartly. Harden shines a light on the political and social development of North Korea through the parallel lives of Kim Il Sung, its tyrannical founder, and No Kum Sok, the youngest fighter pilot in that emerging nation, who serves as the main source for this narrative. The author's reporting skills paired with Bramhall's delivery make this a real gem with wide audience appeal. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
