I was surprised at what quick, easy and enjoyable read this was. Laura & Lisa's relationship made me ache to see my own sisters. It provided first hand insight into the manipulative world of the North Korean government. Oddly enough, I made a connection between my real life boss and the round about, indirect communication practices of the North Korean government. Real life boss says things in an indirect way, so that he may change his direction later on and make you think it was you who miss understood, when really he didn't know what he wanted to ask for in the first place. Another sign that I might need to seriously start looking for a new job.
I highly recommend this book.
