Nothing to Envy
This was an excellent book about North Korea. The subtitle, Ordinary Lives in North Korea, is why it was so good. Even though it's obviously about North Korea, it's really about 6 people of various ages and circumstances who lived, went to school, worked, married, and raised children in North Korea. So often we get inundated with the craziness of the government that we forget the individual lives being lived in North Korea. Highly recommended.
