    1. After I read Nothing to Envy, a book about six ordinary people in North Korea, I was even intrigued about this secretive country I reserved Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader at the library I was so surprised to see a 700 page book with 100 pages of footnotes waiting for me No way would I read such a thick book, but I decided to check it out anyway and maybe skim parts of it Wrong I am reading every page and can t wait to get back to it every chance I get Bradley Martin is taking me t [...]


    2. I m going to go out on a limb here and say that most Americans think of North Korea as a wacky punchline, if they think of it at all This is really unfortunate because North Korea has such a sad story, like Haiti level sad Of course, since North Korea is one of the most secretive societies on Earth, if not the most, it s difficult for anyone to really try to educate themselves on it, but Bradley Martin has done an astonishing amount of research, and if anyone qualifies as a North Korea expert , [...]



    3. So the new Pope recently went to South Korea and, with his haloed head turned towards the North, uttered a solemn prayer for peace and reconciliation He was probably dreaming of something similar to what his predecessor John Paul did, in Europe, bringing down communist states with papal visits and prayers said out loud among ecstatic crowds.I do not think it ll be the same with North Korea, however For out there, they have the same type of religions as the Pope If Christians have the triumvirate [...]


    4. 3.0 Tried to fit 3 or 4 different books into one, and it sufferedMy primary criticism of this book is that Martin didn t stay focused on one project He starts off with a tertiary source historical account of North Korea since World War II That s fine, and he adopts a very objective tone, citing arguments on both sides of many unanswered questions at least in the West about North Korea s policies and leaders We then shift into defectors narratives, along the lines of Nothing to Envy Ordinary Live [...]


    5. I didn t realize how HUGE this book was when I got it, but I decided to give it a go I couldn t put it down I ve always been hungry for information about North Korea This book satisfied many of my curiosities, but impressively, opened up many other areas of interest I would like to study in relation to North Korea It s also a good mix of interviews, anecdotes and straight up facts Not sure this is a 5 star book for everyone, but it was for me.


    6. This was an excellent read Off the cuff, I will tell you that Mr Martin pulls the lazy journalist trick by filling the last few hundred pages with transcriptions of a conversation between him and than several NK defectors If you are a giant weirdo, one thing you may do is read as many books about NK as you possibly can This book fills in a huge gap in my reading of the DPRK Basically, everything so far has covered the present situation, with very little by way of the history of the DPRK This te [...]



    7. From Under different circumstances, North Korea could be the subject of a Marx Brothers satire, with the elements of a pompous, ego driven patriarch, a worshipful population, and a general aura of fantasy and illusion But North Korea has a superbly equipped million man army and an expanding nuclear weapons program So this comprehensive examination of this totalitarian society and the two men who have dominated it is often terrifying For a quarter century, Martin has covered North Korea while wor [...]


    8. A few months ago, I reread 1984 and wondered whether such a society could survive The answer is yes Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il have done it The personality cult is indeed a cult It s like the whole nation is David Koresh s compound We are not going to know the full truth about North Korean life until it falls, but until that happy day, Martin has set the standard for books about this crazy country He has synthesized everything from the ghost written memoirs of Kim Il Sung to the testimony of fo [...]


    9. An interesting but uneven account of the post WWII history of North Korea and the Kim regime The author has had extensive exposure to the North Korean government and has a lot of keen insights into how the government functioned or didn t function.


    10. This was the other book recommended to me at the same time as The Cleanest Race, but it took me much longer to get to just because of its size Almost a thousand pages, though admittedly with nearly a hundred pages of footnotes, took a bit for me to work up to, but I m glad I did and I recommend this book to anyone whose view of North Korea is formed mostly by Best Korea memes and pictures of Kim Jong il looking at things The main impression that Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader gave [...]


    11. Despite being flawed in certain aspects, Martin s work is an interesting one Even though it brings us new information from the northern wasteland of the Korean peninsula, at times I found this book hard to read Is the DPRK totalitarian Certainly Is the DPRK s economy dead Without question These questions were never in doubt To this, I feel Mr Martin has only added a level of gossip as to why this has occured Are defectors testimonies important Certainly However can a junior officer s stories on [...]


    12. This is an interesting read Unfortunately, it lacks structure The author jumps back and forth from biographies of the Kims, history of North Korea, observations and reflections from his journeys, interviews with refugees and anecdotes Most of the chapter titles don t tell you anything at all about what the chapter is going to be about Generally, the book follows a chronological order, but I found that there are many things in between that I was not very interested in and had rather skipped Given [...]


    13. A very good book, albeit with a few flaws that keep it off my list of elite level nonfiction This is a topic I ve wanted to learn about for a while and certainly filled in some gaps in my historical and cultural knowledge.As far as the nit picking I don t usually call for books to be shorter, but this one could have used a bit of trimming I certainly wanted to read interviews with defectors, but there were so many of them that it started to become repetitive I tend to like my big nonfiction to [...]


    14. This is a good informative book about North Korean history, economy, politics and especially the Kim family up to the year 2004 It gave me many insights, I had not had before It also thoroughly tried my patience The first seven to ten chapters seemed to drag out endlessly in a much too detailed description of the Korean War and the utterly irrelevant experiences of the author s uncle as an American soldier in it Add to that a much too detailed account of Kim Il sungs early life as a partisan fig [...]


    15. This book is THICK and even at my pace, I m only 650 pages through in about 3 weeks of reading Regardless of whether you know have an interest in Korea Asia, the details it discusses on a closed, hermetic regime is a fascinating read


    16. It took my almost three months to get through just over 200 pages, then my computer went on the fritz and I finished the last 500 or so in less than a week.I was intimidated by the size and the compactness of the text at first, but Mr Martin has a real knack for making this comprehensive history understandable and interesting It s really re awakened my interest in the subject and I m going to look to see if he s published anything else I might like.


    17. The result of decades of research and reporting, this is an exhaustive presentation of the author s thoughts on and experiences with North Korea Its value would be greater if it were better organized and perhaps a bit less exhaustive there are chapters that are nothing than transcripts of interviews with refugees Information and opinion are repeated again and again and again, making it impossible to find a coherent thread of analysis, much less narrative The book really needs to be ruthlessly e [...]


    18. So many stories from North Korean defectors, and other people country trying to help, however to till now the country is still closed to the world Kim s family must be so powerful to keep things in order to this date.


    19. If you have no friends like me and would like to know every single possible thing about North Korea up to the year 2005, this is the book for you.


    20. Highlights to me that it is often too simplistic to characterize someone as evil, often it simply requires an open perspective to consider the other side of a story.


    21. A staggering mass of well presented information I recommended anyone studying North Korea start with this book.



    22. My third attempt to read this long, dense book At times fascinating, at others so full of names, ministries and statistics it was difficult to enjoy Glad for having read it though.


    23. The bible of all North Korean studies This book has to be read for any study of human rights abuses and political disasters


    24. It took a long time 2 kids under 2 years doesn t help , but I was determined to finish this It is the deep, detailed non fiction that I like and had a wealth of information about the Kim family It got bogged down at times with multiple similar interviews with dissidents and defectors, but it was worthwhile in the end.


    25. Unless you, like me, are concerned about renewed war on the Korean Peninsula and curious about the ability of the ruling Kim dynasty to stay in power while they imprison, starve, and kill their people, you will find this an intimidating, even forbidding read At 849 pages with acknowledgments and index it rivals William Shirer s Rise and Fall of the Third Reich for buik Shirer, at least, had some facts to work with The Nazis had been defeated, and the Allies had access to voluminous records It wa [...]


    26. The book was an interesting look into many aspects of North Korea The author presents a mostly non biased view to all things North Korea.Martin begins his book around roughly 1900 with early history of Kim Hyong jik, the father of KIm Il sung then proceeds with the history of Kim Il sung and Kim Jong il From there, the book bounces around from defector testimony of daily life, politics, matters of economy, and daily troubles of North Koreans from peasants to the elite The reader is bound to lear [...]


    27. Interesting, comprehensive history of North Korea under the Kims I m kind of fascinated by North Korea, not least because so much of what people know about the country is based on guesswork and unreliable testimony This is a long book, written over many years, and some parts are interesting than others all told, I felt like the parts about North Korea before Kim Il Sung s death were interesting than the later parts of the book about the 1990s famine and the greater economic freedom that follow [...]
