A very interesting book about a Korean boy turning man at the beginning of the 20th century that reads so well you will probably finish it in one day. I believe it provides useful insight into the history and cultural context of the Far East no matter if you know practically nothing about it or just need to fill in the lesser known Korean aspect.
