Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea - Barbara Demick the stories inside this book are actually almost incomprehensible to me. if you didn't know they were talking about a real place you might mistake it for a dystopian sci-fi novel.

i guess i was fairly ignorant about north korea before and didn't realise the full extent of the regime. the horror these people go through is just too much ...

the actual book is incredibly well-researched without being stuffy, and it has a lot of heart. i would definitely recommend reading this.
