My curiosity got the better of me after reading this blog and I ordered the book.
– Did it have anything to do with kimchi or Korea? Nope.
– Was it rather simplistic and could the writing have been better? Yes.
– Was it funny and hugely entertaining, anyway? HECK, YES!
Best easy read I’ve had in a while 🙂

That was fast work. Maybe I’ll try it one day! Probably more entertaining than the Dokdo book.
