📝Nothing to Envy Life Love and Death in North Korea Book Synopsis : WINNER OF THE 2010 SAMUEL JOHNSON PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION What if the world imagined by George Orwell in Nineteen Eighty-four was real? What if everything around you was black and white except for the red letters on propaganda signs? Where spies like Orwell's thought Police studied your facial expressions during political rallies to make sure you were sincere in your expressions and your thoughts? If you couldn't turn the dials of your radio away from the government station? In fact, there is such a place: North Korea, the only country not connected to the Internet by choice. Ruled over by a dictator, visible only in carefully controlled images, it's a mysterious, even sinister country. But it's also a place where 22 million people live, work, and dream of a different life. Journalist Barbara Demick spent a decade covering North Korea's strange politics and regulations. then one day she met a young woman defector, Mi-ran, who told her about growing up there; about the cinema she used to go to when the country still had electricity, and about the teenage romance which blossomed there. through Mi-ran's story Demick glimpsed another, more human side of North Korea. In Nothing to Envy, Demick re-traces the life of Mi-ran and of five other North Koreans, taking us into the heart of an elusive society. We see her subjects fall in love, nurture ambitions, and struggle with survival and betrayal. their stories form a haunting portrait of a bizarre society and the cost it exacts on its citizens.

📝 Book Synopsis : Северная Корея начала ХХI века. В стране, где правит культ личности Ким Чен Ира, процветают нищета, коррупция и жестокость власти по отношению к собственному народу, лишенному элементарных человеческих прав. Публичные казни, концлагеря и тюремные шахты, рабство, похищения японцев и южнокорейцев, круглосуточная пропаганда и запрет на все иностранное – такова реальность существования людей, которых государственная машина превращает в зомби.Главный герой романа, мальчик из сиротского приюта, в 14 лет становится солдатом, которого учат сражаться в темных туннелях, прорытых в демилитаризованной зоне, а через несколько лет – безжалостным похитителем людей. В награду за «успехи» его отправляют радистом на рыболовное судно, которое в действительности шпионит за иностранными кораблями. Впоследствии, после жестокой «проверки», он попадает в Америку как переводчик дипломатической делегации, где его по воле случая принимают за Министра тюремных шахт.Захватывающая история его невероятных, на грани абсурда, приключений полна трагизма и жертвенной любви, слепого подчинения идеологии Чучхе и чувства долга по отношению к близким. Автор намеренно сгущает краски, что делает этот роман сродни «бомбе, разорвавшейся среди ясного неба» в цивилизованном обществе.Некоторые критики сравнивают роман Джонсона, написанный в популярном жанре магического реализма, с произведениями Джорджа Оруэла, автора всемирно известных сатирических произведений, обличающих тоталитаризм – «1984» и «Скотный двор» и Олдоса Хаксли, автора антиутопического сатирического романа «О дивный новый мир».Роман получил Пулитцеровскую премию, которая считается одной из наиболее престижных наград США в области художественной литературы и журналистики. Он входит в топ-листы таких изданий как Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Financial Times, Newsweek/The Daily Beast, The Plain Dealer, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, USA Today, Vogue, Elle, GQ, Time Out, Playboy. Является лидером продаж ряда независимых книжных сетей в США.

📝 Book Synopsis : Юрия Карловича Олешу (1899–1960) в кругу писателей-современников называли «королем метафор». Олеша не умел писать «темно и вяло», длинно и скучно, его проза искрится блестящими образами и афоризмами, чуть ли не каждый абзац по емкости и законченности равноценен новелле.Роман «Зависть» (1927) – вершина творчества Олеши и, несомненно, одна из вершин русской литературы XX века. В сборник вошли также рассказы Юрия Олеши и книга «Ни дня без строчки» – дневниковые записи, являющиеся, по сути, тонкой и глубокой эссеистикой изощренного стилиста и чуткого человека.

📝 Book Synopsis : Книга Л.Троцкого «Терроризм и коммунизм» представляется одним из наиболее ярких выступлений в защиту практики заложничества.В работе Л.Троцкого ясно прослеживается и эволюция идеи заложничества: от вынужденных расстрелов заложников во имя сохранения жизни военнопленных к массовому уничтожению заложников во имя абстрактных идей.Институт заложников, по-видимому, надо признать «имманентным» терроризму гражданской войны.

📝Inside North Korea Book Synopsis : All but closed to outside visitors and influence, its public posture guarded and combative, we see almost nothing from inside North Korea. Award-winning photographer Mark Edward Harris has had rare access to this reclusive country, traveling within its borders as well as documenting life along its northern border with China and the highly militarized DMZ dividing North and South Korea. His images are amazing: the monumental architecture and empty streets of the capital; tightly controlled zones of economic and tourist trade with South Korea; mass games featuring 100,000 choreographed participants. Short essays, extended captions, and a foreword by North Korea expert Bruce Cumings further illuminate a country increasingly at the center of international politics.

📝A Kim Jong Il Production Book Synopsis : Before becoming the world's most notorious dictator, Kim Jong-Il ran North Korea's Ministry for Propaganda and its film studios. Conceiving every movie made, he acted as producer and screenwriter. Despite this control, he was underwhelmed by the available talent and took drastic steps, ordering the kidnapping of Choi Eun-Hee (Madam Choi)—South Korea's most famous actress—and her ex-husband Shin Sang-Ok, the country's most famous filmmaker.Madam Choi vanished first. When Shin went to Hong Kong to investigate, he was attacked and woke up wrapped in plastic sheeting aboard a ship bound for North Korea. Madam Choi lived in isolated luxury, allowed only to attend the Dear Leader's dinner parties. Shin, meanwhile, tried to escape, was sent to prison camp, and "re-educated." After four years he cracked, pledging loyalty. Reunited with Choi at the first party he attends, it is announced that the couple will remarry and act as the Dear Leader's film advisors. Together they made seven films, in the process gaining Kim Jong-Il's trust. While pretending to research a film in Vienna, they flee to the U.S. embassy and are swept to safety.A nonfiction thriller packed with tension, passion, and politics, author Paul Fischer's A Kim Jong-Il Production offers a rare glimpse into a secretive world, illuminating a fascinating chapter of North Korea's history that helps explain how it became the hermetically sealed, intensely stage-managed country it remains today.

📝Escape from Camp 14 Book Synopsis : With a New Foreword The heartwrenching New York Times bestseller about the only known person born inside a North Korean prison camp to have escaped North Korea’s political prison camps have existed twice as long as Stalin’s Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. No one born and raised in these camps is known to have escaped. No one, that is, except Shin Dong-hyuk. In Escape From Camp 14, Blaine Harden unlocks the secrets of the world’s most repressive totalitarian state through the story of Shin’s shocking imprisonment and his astounding getaway. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence—he saw his mother as a competitor for food, guards raised him to be a snitch, and he witnessed the execution of his mother and brother. The late “Dear Leader” Kim Jong Il was recognized throughout the world, but his country remains sealed as his third son and chosen heir, Kim Jong Eun, consolidates power. Few foreigners are allowed in, and few North Koreans are able to leave. North Korea is hungry, bankrupt, and armed with nuclear weapons. It is also a human rights catastrophe. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people work as slaves in its political prison camps. These camps are clearly visible in satellite photographs, yet North Korea’s government denies they exist. Harden’s harrowing narrative exposes this hidden dystopia, focusing on an extraordinary young man who came of age inside the highest security prison in the highest security state. Escape from Camp 14 offers an unequalled inside account of one of the world’s darkest nations. It is a tale of endurance and courage, survival and hope. From the Trade Paperback edition.

📝The Cardinal Sins Book Synopsis : The Cardinal Sins ignited a worldwide sensation when it first appeared nearly thirty years ago. Selling more than three million copies, it launched Andrew M. Greeley's career as one of America's most popular storytellers. Back in print at last, this powerful saga of ambition, temptation, and love both spiritual and carnal is as timely and provocative as ever. Lifelong friends and occasional rivals, Kevin Brennan and Patrick Donahue enter seminary together, but their lives soon diverge dramatically. Intellectual and independent, Kevin achieves success as a scholar but often finds himself at odds with his superiors in the Church. And his unwavering principles threaten to cut him off from those closest to him—including the former sweetheart he has never forgotten. By contrast, the ambitious Patrick rises steadily through the Church hierarchy, only to fall prey to the temptations of lust and power. As hidden scandals and Patrick's inner demons threaten to destroy the lives of everyone around him, it's up to his oldest friend to save him from himself—and foil a conspiracy that could change the very future of the Papacy!

📝The Ice Princess Book Synopsis : “A top-notch thriller, one of the best of the genre” (Minneapolis Star Tribune) from international crime-writing sensation Camilla Läckberg tells the story of brutal murders in a small Swedish fishing village, and the shattering, decades-old secrets that precipitated them. In this electrifying tale of suspense from an international crime-writing sensation, a grisly death exposes the dark heart of a Scandinavian seaside village. Erica Falck returns to her tiny, remote hometown of Fjällbacka, Sweden, after her parents’ deaths only to encounter another tragedy: the suicide of her childhood best friend, Alex. It’s Erica herself who finds Alex’s body—suspended in a bathtub of frozen water, her wrists slashed. Erica is bewildered: Why would a beautiful woman who had it all take her own life? Teaming up with police detective Patrik Hedström, Erica begins to uncover shocking events from Alex’s childhood. As one horrifying fact after another comes to light, Erica and Patrik’s curiosity gives way to obsession—and their flirtation grows into uncontrollable attraction. But it’s not long before one thing becomes very clear: a deadly secret is at stake, and there’s someone out there who will do anything—even commit murder—to protect it. Fans of Scandinavian greats Stieg Larsson and Henning Mankell will devour Camilla Läckberg’s penetrating portrait of human nature at its darkest.
