Great overview, looking forward to reading more about all the countries in Asia.

I especially loved the conclusion; how although the current political climate is tense and many injustices are happening, there is hope that in the long term things will get better, especially when The People rise up and make a stand for their needs*.

I think this message applies all over the world. My own country and the USA definitely come to mind.

*I include way more than food and shelter under needs, such as freedom to marry, freedom of expression of gender and freedom from genocide [see the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women].

heavy & poetic

definitely worth getting as an audiobook! Tanya Tegaq has a wonderfully expressive cadence as she reads ends each chapter with throat signing. the story is chilling and heart wrenching.

This book was great, but I wasn't always in a good place to be hearing about the author's molestation or rape. unlike in a paper book, I couldn't exactly skim ahead and decide to save the chapter for another time. that said, what a brave and open-hearted book. I highly recommend it to people who love dogs and to people who love autobiographies, just be ready for some heavy stuff.

Great story but is better with narration.

I really loved all the actors and actresses playing the different characters but I think some of the dialogue was pretty forced to make up for not having any narration.

Also when ever they mentioned that a certain amount of time had passed it felt really startling since there wasn't anything but a comment like "you've been here a year now" to tell me that any sort of time had passed.

I've really enjoyed this story but I think I'll look for just the audiobook next time.
