    I was very pleasantly surprised to find this a wholly enjoyable read. I picked it up on an impulse because, like the author, I'm alternately fascinated and repulsed by the reclusive country. I've never met Mr. Eyre, nor have I been to the DPRK, but reading the book was like taking a trip to North Korea with a kindred spirit. His prose takes you right along with him on this strange journey. He paints vivid, descriptive pictures, which are great for those of us who haven't actually seen it up close. And while he's definitely got a cynic's eye about the hermit state, he never fails to describe the human side of his buttoned-down, state-sponsored tour guides (on the brief occasions when it appears). I don't normally write reviews, but I was so surprised by this compelling travelogue that I was moved to do so. If you're at all intrigued by this surreal country that's a million miles away from everywhere, pick this one up.

    Not a place that I would choose to go on a guided tour to, but thankfully I don't have to as Tim Eyre has done it for me. Essential reading for anyone who wants an introduction to what has to be the strangest country on earth.
