The idea, the writing, the balance of hilarious sarcasm and sometimes surprisingly affecting accounts of the tragic events in the "Dear Leader's" life, even the performance of the narrator, all of it amounts to a work of genius. Even though this is a work of fiction, reportedly Michael Malice based all of the stories in the book on North Korean lore, on what the people there are taught in schools, on the official North Korean government statements or press releases, on many other published works of history (both in the Koreas and in other countries), as well as on what the western media knows about this reclusive, little known totalitarian regime. I couldn't stop listening to it. Highly recommended!

Narration was perfect. The changing tone of the book perfectly captured. Michael Malice captures the personality cult of the North Korean regime and then gradually brings you into the real life horror film that is life in the DPRK.

I couldn't finish, the performance was frustratingly flat. The reader seemed like they were bored or had other things to do. When my battery ran out while listening, I was actually glad I could stop. The content wasn't very enlightening either.

The content is presented as obvious propaganda. This forces you to think about the topics from a strange point of view and look up all dates and events referenced, resulting in shocking discoveries. Great writing and voice acting. That ending though :'(
absolutely loved this audiobook, the narrator gave an excellent portrayal of the leader. I actually found myself agreeing with some of his philosophy. excellent, thank you.
