Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of A Kim Jong-Il Production by Paul Fischer, read by Stephen Park.
Before becoming the world's most notorious dictator, Kim Jong-Il ran North Korea's film industry. He directed every film made in the country but knew they were nothing compared to Hollywood. Then he hit on the perfect solution: order the kidnapping of South Korea's most famous actress and her ex-husband, the country's most acclaimed director.
In a jaw-dropping mission, the couple were kidnapped, held hostage, and then 'employed' to make films for the Dear Leader, including a remake of Godzilla. They gained Kim's trust - but could they escape?

A peek behind the veil of secrecy in North Korea. Stories of abductions from other countries of people who subsequently turn up there. Specifically a South Korean film producer and his actress wife.
- Prakash Sambasivan
Brilliantly written and even more brilliantly narrated. Intriguing, suspenseful, edge-of-the-seat, and depressing and sad all at the same time. A roller coaster of a story.
