Let's ask the obvious question first: Is The Orphan Master's Son, published in
early 2012 to enthusiastic reviews in almost every major newspaper and journal,
as good as the critics say? My answer is a resounding “yes.” Adam Johnson has

style that captures the reader from the first page. Johnson's novel follows the
adventures of a North Korean, Jun Do, who grows up in an orphanage run by his
father.
