O that It s certainly clever and Johnson is nothing if not inventive But I couldn t get past the use of North Korea as a setting which seemed like a #meretricious trick to me There s certainly a lot of superficial North Korean trappings loudspeakers prison #trick to me There s certainly a lot of superficial North Korean trappings loudspeakers prison eferences to starvation and the "theater of Kim Jong Il and his personality cult provide part of the engine of the plot But there s " of Kim Jong Il and his personality cult provide part of the engine of the plot But there s attempt to understand what any of that could mean to eal people or eal characters it s just the setting for a owdy picaresue adventure that goes on a bit too long and is ather too wordy Johnson s descriptions of nature are particularly painful and the place where Johnson works out a bunch of sort of shopworn ideas about identity loyalty and deception that are not as interesting as he thinks they are and that all take place in the head there are almost no emotions in this book It sort of distresses me to ead that this is satire it s idiculous and over the top with its secret plane landings on Texas anches for taco parties but doesn t satire euire that the thing being held up to idicule isn t already inherently absurd I don t eally understand the purpose of satirizing North Korea it s not as if they ll ead this book and say oh how insightful And I am somewhat saddened that people feel that they are learning about North Korea from this jumble of scraps of information and salacious details I wish people would ead Barbara Demick s Nothing to Envy Lives of Ordinary People in North Korea the powerful non fiction depictions of utter deprivation totalizing social control and the struggle to survive make Orphan Master s dramatic plot twists look cheap and flimsyOh well I know I m way in the minority on this one.
