5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Insight into North Korea and superbly written, 29 April 2010
This review is from: Nothing to Envy: Real Lives in North Korea (Paperback)
This book really does give you a glimpse as to what daily life is like within North Korea. It also gives accurate and compelling accounts on the process or 'defection' and what North Koreans have to go though to actually escape this repressive regime.

I don't read many books and I recommend even fewer, although this by far would be my recommendation for the year! It is a humbling and fascinating eye opener into the world of North Korea and to read about the depravity that these poor people have to life through daily.

I was sad to reach the end of this book as I wanted to continue reading what happens to these peoples lives in the long run. It appears to be superbly researched and accurate (as can be) on detail. It couldn't put this book down while reading it and I hope to read it again soon. I would not hesitate for once second to recommend this book to anybody.
