The Boy Who Escaped Paradise Reviews

A reminder of the power of numbers, but one doesn't need to be a math fan to appreciate the brilliance of this work. The language is mesmerizing. An exciting adventure added to rich characters, all multiplied by stunning language, equals an unforgettable novel.
A North Korean whiz kid tries for a slice of the happiness pie, and complications ensue.
A smart, riveting read.
