Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Real North Korea: Life and Politics in the Failed Stalinist Utopia (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The information in this book is most interesting. Mr. Lankov's view of and perspective on the country are certainly not what we read in the press or what ones would ever think our government leaders are seeing or understanding. However, that being said, I could not agree with him more! I find this book most educational. What Lankov writes simply makes sense to me, when you put two and two together. His arguments and rationale are 5-star. However, the chapters seem to repeat themselves in places throughout. Because I am so fascinated by the subject matter, I couldn't help but finish reading the book, as I wanted to glean as much information as is available in those pages. Still, the writing itself could have been a bit less rambling in the flow of the book; hence, I gave the book 4 stars. NEVERTHELESS, it is certainly a must-read!
