    Incredible read

    Nothing To Envy will educate ans surprise you about the trials of life for people in North Korea. The book is written by an American journalist who spends time in Norht Korea and interviews and writes the stories of defectors lives. Most of the 'stories' come from those living through the great famine of the 90's and how they could trust no one but their own family. I would highly recommend reading Notheing To Envy.

    Horrifying Communist abuse

    If you ever hear a teenager saying that he heard about communism at school and it sounds awesome, immediately give them this book. It's a heartbreaking, horrifying, and often disgusting tale about the systematic human rights abuses that one of the last modern relics of communism is built on.

    This book is a fascinating and unique first hand account of life inside the "hermit kingdom" of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea. Chol-Hwan Kang vividly describes his and his families journey from a prosperous early life to a harrowing and tragic ten year period of imprisonment in the infamous Yudok forced labour and re-education camp. At times brutal and confronting, this ultimately inspiring story of survival is an invaluable eyewitness insight into the oppression and horror of present day North Korea.

    Very scary to read. There is so little information available about North Korea & it's heartbreaking to hear of the terrible things that go on there. This North Korean does a great job enlightening the world to the terrible atrocities that go on in that country.
