Recommend a Book to AN

Postby Frieden-und Freudenland » Thu Jan 10, 2019 5:50 am

It took me a long while to decide whether I should open this thread in Forum 7 or here - but it probably belongs here.

The idea is simple - you will look at the nation above you, try to gather information about this nation (as much as you have time for) and based on your impression of the person who must have created it, you recommend them a book that you think they would enjoy. It would be great if you said a few words about the book (without giving crucial spoilers) to explain why you think it is a good match for the AN. Shall we start?

Well, no one above me, so...

Title: Escape from Camp 14: One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West

Author: Blaine Harden

Date of Publication: March 29, 2012
"All I wish is to see the world burn."
-The Great Uniter and Beast of the DGES
(By the way, the DGES is a servant to DEAREST LEADER of Psychotic Dictatorships.)
Just your typical guy who wants to have fun. Don't take this nation seriously,
ever.
I DO NOT use NS stats!
Keshiland literally wrote:I would give it a no. A country that lies about how free, or how great, or how humanitarian it is can never be developed. Example, NK lies and says they are democratic and are not, the US lies and says we are free yet we incarcerate millions for a medical plant. See we are basically a larger more populated North Korea.

I wouldn’t recommend Mein Kampf to anybody. Reading Hitler’s autobiography is the last thing I’d do. And the two ones put together look rather anti-Jew, not to mention other titles mentioning Jews in a negative way like the International Jew don’t look good either. Let’s read the OP and try not to make blatant attacks on Jews. /skip

Maybe I will consider The Art of War, by Sun Tzu. Mein Kampf........ ehh, I will read it for historical factor, not for anything else.

It's not a horror story. It's a political thriller, with more of thriller, and not too much politics in the way.

Dear gentleman, I do not wish to offend anyone, I simply recommend books that I like and consider important for the education of any young person, if you do not like my liking for literature I respect your opinion :^) and you can share your favorite books too if you want.
