1.THE INFORMATION: A HISTORY, A THEORY, A FLOOD
Looks very interesting, thanks for the heads-up!

I've only had my Kindle for a little week so the titles below - I only read
nonfiction titles, at least in english, not so in my mother's tongue, so this
is a great topic! - is all I've read on the device so far. All of these come
highly recommended if you have an interest in the history of these
two persecuted nations.

(1) The Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag
by Chol-hwan Kang (Topaz format).

(2) Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea
by Barbara Demick. I ditto SeaBookGuy's rec for this one.
A very good read.

(3) First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers
by Loung Ung.
