Article Body:
Within the first few pages, I was engrossed and deeply moved by Apina
Hrbek’s eloquent writing skills. Tears of compassion were in my eyes at
several points in this moving story of survival.

The main character, Edita, was raised by a heartless mother who became
twisted after helplessly watching the communist government steal her
family’s vast fortune. Her nonconformist father was her only source of
comfort and it was from him that she learned about these forbidden things
called "choice" and "freedom".

The setting is a land under strict Soviet rule where people are in a
constant state of fright and can not afford to trust anyone – not even
their own kin. To trust was an invitation for disaster.

The story of their escape to a land of freedom was wrought with
circumstances going wrong – and yet it all worked out in the end.
Resettling in a place where they must learn new customs, new languages
and find employment to support their small family was no easy task for
Edita and her husband. Through poverty and displacement, the family
struggled to find their dreams and learn how to deal with this new idea -
the freedom to make choices.

Pandemonium is certainly an educational book that may be beneficial for
children and grand children of immigrants who wish to understand what it
was like. It also could serve as a useful reminder to appreciate, protect
and expand upon the rights of all mankind.
