Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea de Barbara Demick (2009)

Afegit fa poc perArina8888, biblioteca privada, kristiederuiter, Kerans
  1. 93
    Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea de Guy Delisle (lorax)
    lorax: Pyongyang is an outsider's view of the one part of the country where foreigners are generally permitted; Nothing to Envy is an inside look at ordinary life elsewhere in the country where the situation is even grimmer.
  2. 20
    Escape from North Korea: The Untold Story of Asia's Underground Railroad de Melanie Kirkpatrick (TomWaitsTables)
  3. 20
    Without You, There Is No Us: My Time with the Sons of North Korea's Elite de Suki Kim (Nickelini)
    Nickelini: Both books are compelling, fascinating reads. Nothing to Envy covers a broad scope, and Without You, There is No Us has a tight focus. They explore the North Korean regime from different angles.
  4. 20
    Escape from Camp 14: One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West de Blaine Harden (Stbalbach, rebeccanyc)
    Stbalbach: Amazing story of escape from a North Korea prison camp.
    rebeccanyc: Demick's book explores the lives of several people who lived in and escaped from North Korea, while Harden's focuses on one individual who was born in and escaped from a North Korean slave labor camp. The two books complement each other.
  5. 20
    Kim Il-song's North Korea: de Helen-Louise Hunter (wandering_star)
    wandering_star: Credited in Nothing To Envy as one of the sources of info about DPRK.
  6. 10
    This is Paradise!: My North Korean Childhood de Hyok Kang (justine28)
    justine28: This is Paradise is a first-hand account of North Korean regime and especially the 1990s famine as experienced by a defector. Very similar to the stories gathered by Demick - a journalist. The two books complement each other.
  7. 00
    Tibetan Diary: From Birth to Death and Beyond in a Himalayan Valley of Nepal de Geoff Childs (meggyweg)
  8. 00
    The Cleanest Race: How North Koreans See Themselves and Why It Matters de B. R. Myers (g33kgrrl)
  9. 04
    The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao de Junot Díaz (weener)
    weener: One is fiction, one is non-fiction. One is in Latin America, one is in Asia. Both are heartbreaking, deeply affecting tales of life under totalitarianism.

Well-written. Immensely informative. Haunting and depressing.

Well worth the read.

It is also mind-boggling how George Orwell predicted so many things amazingly spot-on in his novel 1984. The parallels between North Korea and 1984 are endless. ( )

An incredible viewpoint of North Korea during 1950s to 1990s of 6 Koreans telling their life story. The author also does a great job of including historical information to give a good understanding of what life would be like in North Korea at this time. I found it very interesting and the stories to be riveting. I highly recommend this book to anyone. ( )

看脫北者回憶七八十年代的朝鮮,比較驚悚的一個開悟是等國眼下的朝鮮化——

・黨媒喉舌長篇累牘地辱罵「敵國」,exactly the same as the tirade from the Great Vituperator;
・選擇性、有針對性地報導別國的惡劣新聞,營造別國都處在水深火熱之中的景象;
・我所遇到的路邊六歲童以「美國大傻逼」為口頭禪,和從幼兒園開始就通過兒歌灌輸仇日仇美的朝鮮估計也沒差;
・教科書內也都是類似的內容,小孩完全浸淫在狼奶裡,想擺脫其影響可能首先得從小有叛逆和愛質疑的性格;
・舉報文化重新抬頭,國內的監控異常強大,“the more there was to complain about, the more important it was to ensure that nobody did”,對應「抓了」;
・狂熱愛國者只有遭遇鐵拳怒砸之後才會清醒過來,但即便如此也還是對房間裡的大象視而不見,認為上位者無可挑剔、都是下面執行者的錯;
・甚至還有儒家文化也是共通的,重男輕女和等級尊卑的觀念根深蒂固,東 亞 手 牽 手

當然這些也不能完全說是朝鮮化,畢竟獨裁國家一個兩個不都這鳥樣,又或者本國時鐘回撥五十年也沒啥不同(。不過放在四五年前看,我大概只會單純把朝鮮當作一個遙遠的客體、甚至是以獵奇的眼光來閱讀,但如今越來越多的相似之處不由得讓人心生恐懼頭皮發麻⋯⋯

Epilogue 裡一句 "When North Korea runs short of food, the regime feeds its population with more propaganda",實在很難不讓人想到最近大力鼓吹光盤的等國,I guess it's time to brace yourself for the upcoming future ( )

I would really like to know how I keep accidentally, and without my knowledge, marking books as "Read" instead of "TO BE read".

I don't think I've read this book yet and there is no read date, only a shelved date. Shelved just last November??? I'm pretty sure it must be one that sounded good when I was reading everyone's Nonfiction November lists. I'm going to change the status to "TO read" and hope that I'm right. Now I need to see what other books are on my "READ" shelf that should not be. G-r-r-r-r-r-r.

Positively Orwellian. Fascinating. Eye-opening. ( )

Barbara Demick's book Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea opens with a nighttime satellite image of northeast Asia that shows the bright lights of South Korea and China. In the middle of the photograph is a dark spot — a nation of 23 million people that has little electricity.

Nothing to Envy – the title comes from a piece of propaganda aimed at hoodwinking gullible North Korean citizens – is a fascinating work which highlights in the lives of the individuals concerned the triumph of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.
 
Elegantly structured and written, Nothing To Envy is a groundbreaking work of literary nonfiction.
