April 2013: Nothing to Envy
Jill: It seems wrong to say that I loved this book, given the subject matter and the senseless suffering it detailed, but I am so glad I read it. It educated me on North Korea while also telling the stories of the characters so beautifully that it read like a novel.
Holly: A bit tough to get through, but definitely educational.
Becca: I thought the book was interesting, informative, and incredibly disturbing all at the same time. I'm embarrassed that I didn't know more about N. Korea. It got a little tedious at times, but overall I really liked the book.
Kerry: Nothing to Envy enthralled me. It was hard to imagine what life is like in North Korea, but the memorable stories have stuck with me. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to expand their understanding of the world.
Steph: Very interesting and informative. Made me highly sympathetic to the plight of those currently living in North Korea - I am thankful for the raised awareness the book gave me.
