Well then ... wow ... and seriously ... there is really a land like North Korea that really really exists yet today? Really? Nothing to Envy is most certainly THE most captivating read I have ever read. My biggest question has to be, "where have I been?" especially during the North Korean famine of the 1990s. It truly can be mind boggling realizing that there is a whole country full of people who are the most oppressed of oppressed. What a day it will be when Korea is Korea.
