a book for you

I managed to sneak in a little reading lately, and was glad I had requested this book from the library.

It was a very eye-opening collection of stories of people living in North Korea, told by a few who managed to escape.  This is far from a happy ending story, it is very grim and somber in many ways.  I really knew very little about the history of North Korea, and this book provided a background that made some sense out of the rulers and conquerors.  Because there is very little media coverage allowed by the communist government, we rarely hear much about the country.  I think I tend to forget about the everyday people there, and how hard life is for them.  

I recommend you give this book a look-see for yourself.
