Hmm...that sounds very interesting! I am gonna see if I can get a copy of that book. Thanks for the review!

MC

Yeah, I think you'll enjoy it. It is extremely well-written and I think you'll be able to relate to several of the themes in the novel.

Edward

I feel kind of honoured that I've managed to slip a book into your very busy reading schedule. Glad you liked it.

MC

Yeah, Edward nice one, I really enjoyed it. I have taken a couple of your other recommendations into consideration as well. Although, I remember one that was a history of Korea seemed a bit dense for a subject I have a middling interest in.

Edward

Not sure which one I was talking about, but I've now read a few books on Korea and "A Walk Through the Land of Miracles" is a good choice for the vaguely interested. It's written by an English journalist (Simon Winchester) about a walk he did from one end of the country (South K) to the other. On the way he addresses various aspects of the history and culture. You'll cover most of the important things about Korea (briefly) and quite a few oddities as well. The interesting thing for me about this was that it was written in the mid eighties and so subtly dated in some ways.
