Would you try another book from Euna Lee and Lisa Dickey and/or Janet Song?
I believe this story is a one-off for this author so I likely won't look any further.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The World Is Bigger Now?
The sentencing itself almost brought me to tears.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
What else would you have wanted to know about Euna Lee and Lisa Dickey ’s life?
Honestly, I would have liked to heard more about North Korea itself.

What did you love best about The World Is Bigger Now?
The beginning, where we learn about the experiences of the North Koreans who've made it to China. Frankly, this was much more interesting then the arrest, captivity, trial, and release of the two Americans.
Any additional comments?
If you want to learn about North Korea, there are better books -- Nothing to Envy and The Aquariums of Pyongyang. Here, you learn a lot about Euna Lee -- her childhood, her family, her faith -- and not so much about North Korea. I'd prefer that it were reversed, but that's on me. The book delivers what it advertises. When it says it's "a story about faith, family, and forgiveness" it's not kidding. If, like me, you're an atheist, you'll do a bit of eye rolling all the times God is mentioned.
