    1. They don’t stop to think that in the middle of this black hole, in this bleak, dark country where millions have died of starvation, there is also love.A painfully human look at North Korea (mostly) through the eyes of defectors now living in South Korea or China.Demick peels back the layers of propaganda, parades and leader worship to expose the people and lives underneath. If you're anything like me, you'll find it hard not to be fascinated by this exceptionally secretive country and wonder w [...]

    2. One thread of this riveting National Book Award finalist is a love story. Mi-san is an attractive girl from a family that does not have the right stuff, history-wise, her father having fought for South Korea in the war. They are considered “impure” by the North Korean government and society as a whole. Her prospects are only so-so. Jun-sang is headed to university in Pyongyang to study science. His future includes a good job, a membership in the party and a life of relative privilege. One en [...]

    3. An amazing, unforgettable book about North Korea. Barbara Demick explores the most closed-off society in the world through the stories of six "ordinary" North Koreans who defect to South Korea beginning in the late 1990s. Through their stories, Demick covers a bit of everything (the pathological weirdness that was/is Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-Il and the cult of worship - and fear of reprisal - that made people cry harder at the former's death than they ever had in their lives, the role of a total [...]

    4. There are few books like this written today: concise, well-researched, plainly yet effectively written, and free of hyperbole. This book is a very personal account of six lives in the failed state of North Korea. The level of deprivation and humiliation these people endure is heartbreaking. The book reads more like an outstanding piece of social anthropology than it does cut and dried journalism. The author is to be commended for her ability to get inside both the hearts and minds of the people [...]

    5. In the aftermath of the Korean war my mother's brother left an enigmatic note on his pillow before stepping out for school. He never returned and the family lamented his apparent suicide. A half century later a list of names is published in Koreas' national paper. Part of the warming relations between North and South Korea, it offered the chance for families separated by the border to connect. So far nearly 20 thousand Koreans have participated in face-to-face meetings. My uncle's name is there [...]

    6. A physician, possessing numerous years of education and selfless service to her people, comes upon a isolated farm in a dark field at twilight. The doctor is starving, malnourished and ravenous. She seeks crumbs, maybe a scrap of corn to eat. Slowly, she makes her way into a barn, musty with the odor of hay and equipment. She has not seen more than a handful worth of white rice in years. Indeed, white rice is a rare luxury in the world she comes from.Suddenly, she sees in the dark of the barn a [...]

    7. This book was simultaneously a page-turner and hard as hell to read. I had trouble falling asleep last night because of it, and when I did I had some unsettling nightmares. This isn't a book I can read, write an "oh that's nice, that definitely added to my life" type of review and go about my day. This is some seriously skillful nonfiction. It calls to mind being fourteen and reading Wild Swans. There's a similar structure to both works; history of a country to get the big picture, and memoirs o [...]

    9. Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North KoreaBarbara Demick is an American author and journalist"Our father, we have nothing to envy in the world. Our house is within the embrace of the Workers’ Party. We are all brothers and sisters. Even if a sea of fire comes toward us, sweet children do not need to be afraid, our father is here. We have nothing to envy in this world."Popular song taught to North Korean school children praising the Dear Leader*********************************************** [...]

    11. On December seventeenth in 2011, Kim Jong-il has died. Known to the world as the supreme leader of the world's most closed society, the "hermit kingdom" which encompasses the northern part of the Korean Peninsula, he has received the posthumous titles of the Eternal General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and Eternal Chairman of the National Defence Commission. His death has been mourned by the population in a dramatic and uncontrolled way, with people crying helplessly and expressing t [...]

    12. This book is a must read — an absolute MUST READ! It is inexcusable not to be informed about what has been going on in North Korea. What we hear on the news is just simply not enough. There are great reviews of this book on . So I won’t elaborate about the contents of this book. What I would like to do is compare The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (in short DPRK, or just simply North Korea) to Hitler’s Third Reich.Upfront: The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is just as muc [...]

    13. Correct, 4 stars. I know, I know, I don't give stars but I've decided that when I have little to say or add to the many superior reviews of a book, perhaps the stars and a few words from me will suffice. I have been meaning to read something, anything about North Korea for some time now. With the strife between our countries it seems paramount now. What better than to hear personal stories from the people who live there to give me a better understanding of mindset?Though Barbara Demick's book wa [...]

    14. If you thought that George Orwell's satires Animal Farm and 1984 are just works of fiction, think again. Look at a map and find North Korea. That's a present-day, real-life Animal Farm.Barbara Demick's book, Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea, gives us a peek of a spot of hell here on Earth. Based mostly on interviews with 6 North Koreans who defected to South Korea and from the author's own experience, this book takes the reader into an often difficult read of how North Koreans are [...]

    15. Marvellous. I would say a must read.This book has several threads. Firstly it discusses the general idiosyncrasies of life in North Korea under the guru gaze of Kim il-sung and then Kim Jong-il. Think Gulliver's Travels mixed with Alice in Wonderland, then give it a good shake. I could hardly believe what I was reading. It's another world, and not in a good way. Secondly, it follows the lives of several people who ultimately defect to South Korea. These people give us great insight into life in [...]

    16. "It is not easy for somebody who has escaped a totalitarian country to live in the free world. Defectors have to rediscover who they are in a world that offers endless possibilities. Choosing where to live, what to do, even which clothes to put on in the morning is tough enough for those of us accustomed to choices. It can be utterly paralyzing for people who've had decisions made for them by the state their entire lives."These are the stories of North Korean defectors: people who risked everyth [...]

    17. This is an incredible book! I rarely cry for books though am a greedy reader. "Nothing to Envy" makes me cry many times. I can't stop reading it.I never try to understand North Korea, for Chinese people like me, North Korea is ignored. We are proud of our market and economy, meanwhile making jokes of North Korea partner. But I don't know North Korea people live in such a condition in 1990s, when I was a troubled teenager. Some of the stories sound familiar, yes, it happened in China and CCCP bef [...]

    18. How can any book about North Korea and its people not be fascinating? This one is a composite tale of six people who defected from this very bizarre country and were interviewed at length, off and on for a period of years. Because I read a surreal work of fiction by Adam Johnson called The Orphan Master's Son, a novel that was very well researched (and which I highly recommend), there were probably not as many surprises for me as for another reader who knows even less about North Korea. Because [...]

    19. I started reading this book as a buddy read with a friend, but she decided it wasn’t the right book at the right time for her, so I continued on alone, grateful that it had been her suggestion and I got it off my to read shelf, and I’m so glad that I did.There is a helpful map and I love maps in books, though I wish it had been even more heavily labeled as many places were mentioned didn’t appear on it. I also appreciated the photos. Each chapter started with one photo, though I wish that [...]

    20. ***NO SPOILERS***The subtitle is “Ordinary Lives in North Korea,” but “Extraordinary Lives in North Korea” may be more fitting. Author Barbara Demick chose to approach the topic of North Korea smartly--by interviewing at length a handful of North Korean defectors from various walks of life. Actually, “interviewing” feels inaccurate. She presented the kinds of intimate details exchanged between confidants. North Korea is unlike any country on Earth, and the subjects of this book are v [...]

    21. North Korea reminds me of the old kingdom of the Zulus, in that it seemed only possible for both states that only one man could ever be fat, the nation's strategic fat reserves carried for security on one person, rather as the Merovingians made long hair their distinctive marker of royal status so these modern states had the male pot belly.Journalist Barbara Demick has sown together a narrative account of six North Korean lives from the city of Chongjin in the north west from the 1990s through t [...]

    22. This nonfiction book written by journalist Barbara Demick was published in 2009. It follows the lives of six North Koreans (actually more if you count family members) who manage to defect to South Korea. One could say the stories they tell might be biased against the North as they are the ones who chose to leave. On the other hand, as Demick explains, western reporters (she works for The Los Angeles Times) are not allowed any free access to Northern Koreans while they are in North Korea. There a [...]

    23. I loved this book. I really knew next to nothing about North Korea before I read it, and it was a great introduction. Basically the North Korean regime is like one of those psychos who's kidnapped a bunch of little kids and keeps them chained in the basement their whole lives so they never know anything of the outside world, only unlike when psychos do this everyone else in the global neighborhood basically knows what's going on in that creepy house.Demick's book relies on extensive interviews w [...]

If only that were true, my brother. "Why doesn't the government just leave us alone to live our lives?" (Women at the market were said to grumble this. They were bad ass women because they were illegally making money on the black market AND criticizing the government. In public, no less!)Korea was free from thirty-five y [...]

    26. Parada militar em Pyongyang, Coreia do Norte.A longevidade de um regime – desumano, bárbaro, impiedoso, inclemente, malvado, tirânico, horrível, hediondo, insensível, atroz, lancinante, implacável, sangrento, sanguinário, inflexível, inimaginável, e tudo o mais que possamos escrever ou discorrer – é uma espécie de mistério para mim.Nos anos 90 o desmoronamento iminente do regime norte-coreano era um consenso praticamente incontestado; contra todas as expectativas sobreviveu à que [...]

    27. Demick's account of the lives of six North Korean refugees who fled the Communist state was an eye opening read. The book was so gripping that I could not put it down. The harrowing experiences of these people was unimaginable. They suffered such love, loss, sacrifice, and betrayal. The book gave a well-researched glimpse into the unusual leadership and governing of the closed off state, and her depiction of the immensity of the famine will forever haunt me.

    28. Viva PortugalDepois de me ter familiarizado com a realidade asfixiante que se vive na Coreia do Norte, só me apetece gritar alto e bom som: Viva Portugal

    29. Whew! This testimony is so deep and dire that even I, who for the last 10 years avoided atrocity reads, cannot give it other than a 5 star. The author has grasped each life's memoir and journey to its minutia essentials. Of their intellects, their ambitions, their emotions, their loyalties, and most of all to their day to day physical conditions for their ultimate survivals. Outstanding, outstanding voice for the 6 characters of primary history- but also for the 23 million who have no voice with [...]

    30. There are now thousands of defectors from North Korea (Chosun) living in South Korea (Hanguk)and Demick has probably met hundreds of them. She could have written this in a journalistic style, with many testimonies substantiated by academic work and other evidence. She could have written it several years earlier, when she first met and spoke to the defectors whose stories she has told. She chose to do something else.The night sky in North Korea is a sight to behold. It might be the most brilliant [...]
