HASH(0x9b19ce58) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Amazing historical novel 15 de octubre de 2011
Por Jon Welsh - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
The author has created a masterpiece, Indeed. The story is fresh and his amazing skill in portraying the tragic destruction of human dignity and humanity,denial of human rights, blind patriotism, starvation and the impressive love story through the difficult times has captivated my attention from beginning to last. Breath-taking plots, speedy development of conflicts and his writing style make the history alive. Especially the last scene is stuck in the back of my mind and will stay there for many years to come. It is a tragic history unknown to the west, the first historical novel every published in the west where we take freedom for granted and humger is unknown. Bolshevik Revolution erupted like a dormant volcano out of social injustice, disparity of wealth and corruption. The revolution destroyed freedom and social structure. As the time went on, Russians lost everything they had fought for. Soon they turned on each other. In the absence of freedom they were no better than domesticated pets. The central government controlled with a tight fist, forcing everyone to depend upon it for everything. HUMAN CARGO: Ghost Trains is an unforgettable love story. As I was reading it I felt like watching a big-scale historical movie on a wide screen. The background is the Bolshevik Revolution, the bloodiest civil war in Russian history. Captain Sasha Vasilievich's life was changed when Russian Army eastern front collpased. And then he was swept into the revolution. It was like wild fires spreading over the prairies. He and his wife Irina got separated as the revolution continued. Sash joined the revolution. While waiting for her husband, Irina was raped by the infamous Cossack general Semenov. Irina was badly burned in a fire and decided to vanish from the evil world that had snapped the burgeoning stalk of her hopes and dreams. The civil war went on, millions of innocent civilians died of hunger and diseases. Sasha continued his search for his wife for the past three years. The most memorable is their reunion. When they finally met again Irina refused her husband. "You don't like what you see." Sasha replied, "I haven't come to see a beautiful face. I'm looking for the lost part of my life." While rebuilding their lives, their mother land betrayed them. In 1937 Joseph Stalin began his bloody ethinic cleansing against Soviet minorities. His first victims were Soviet-Koreans. Stalin put them on cattle trains and shipped them out of Russia. Among the deportees were Sasha and irina on the cattle train bound for unknown land of exile. No bath rooms on the trains because they were like cattle. No stoves on the train because they were criminals and their only crime was they looked different. No medicine on the train for they were animals. Diseases took a heavy toll on children and the old. On the way to their unkown destinations, Irina contracted the wide-spreading disease but she survived the deadly disease that claimed tens of thousands of lives. After a moth-long ride, the train unloaded the human cargo in the middle of nowhere. Sasha and his family resolved to survive and to rise again from the unbearable adversities and the crime their country had committed against them and against humanity. Irina, her septmother and her little boy stepped out into the snow-covered steppe to look for weeds, roots and winter desert animals to cook their first meal in the unwelcoming land. in the freezing winter in Ushtobe, a remote part of Kazakhstan, deportees took shelter in dirt dugouts over the vast snowy steppe. It looked like gigantic lepers's colonies.

I received this book, Human Cargo:Ghost Trains as a gift and I truly appreciate it.

Michael Lee has plucked an important historical fact from the dark past and brought it into the light of present, through his book, Human
Cargo:Ghost Trains. He has skillfully woven an intricate, powerful masterpiece of
intrigue involving war, the cost of loyalty, the betrayal of country and family
rivalry. Actually, he has created one big, fascinating love story containing many
stories and plots, all tied together with a central theme, that being, the pursuit of love, freedom, peace and security. The author has mastered the art of 'description' to the point that the reader is in on the action and senses the emotions played out by the novel's array of characters. This many layered story will make you laugh and cry. It grabs the heart. You will want to read it again
and will most likely never forget it.

Human Cargo:Ghost Trains is more than a well written novel. It is a tribute to all the Korean men, women and children who lost their lives during this terrible upheaval and to those who, through courage, determination and hard work, did survive.

Michael Lee has proven to be a phenomenal, creative writer. I only hope he receives the recognition he deserves.

Human Cargo is a fascinating and fast read!
This book is a page-turner filled with alarming details of the chaotic economic and political turmoil lived by people in Russia, in 1917- 1938. Mike Lee reveals the monstrous atrocities done to a Korean family who had embraced the land of Siberia, as much as any native Russian could. Farming was their life: Hard work was their reward: Self sufficiency and honesty was their motto: Siberia, Russia was their homeland. This family would be a benefit to any nation, and yet greedy unsympathetic men followed orders to treat the Korean Russians so cruelly; it is beyond my imagination.

The characters in Human Bondage consists of a family with the perceptions and opinions of 4 generations of Korean Russians. Mike Lee has done an excellent portrayal of the lives of Siberian farmers during this time period. The characters become alive as one travels back in time to Russia 1917.

Human Cargo is not a story that should be shoved under the carpet. It provides information on true historical events that really happend in Russia. ...Yes, Human Cargo is a story of suffering and it is a story of the incredible ability of the human spirit to rise above tragic circumstances.
