    Vivid, human portraits of life in North Korea

    I really responded to the romance in this book, as it traces the lives of 6 North Koreans, including 2 who separately defected and reunited on the outside, with a result that surprised both of them. Highly, highly recommended.

    Excellent

    I had very little knowledge of North Korea before reading this book. I found it to be an excellent introduction. The author does an excellent job weaving the personal narratives together with the politics and history of the country.
