    1. Evil? Mad? Suffering from low self-esteem due to his 5'2" stature? A brat? Or a malignant narcissist? He’s been called Dear Leader, Leader of Steel, Glorious Sun of the Twenty-First Century, Everlasting Sky and the list goes on. Find out why The Dear Leader is “e only Fat Bastard in the whole country” while the people of North Korea starve to death, are tortured in the prison system, and live a grim day to day existence.I like his jacket though.


    2. a bit of a short read and while it is mostly informative i think it's been packed out with alot of conjecture also. i guess a writer can only state his opinions about a subject especially so when there isn't much to go on about mr illusive but to fill half the book with them is a bit he should've wrote a book about himself and his visits to north korea maybe as opposed to a case study. still, worth a read if you're interested in the subject


    3. The book begin with a rather condensed fact-spewing and number-churning chapters that was rather hard to stomach. And after that the story settled down to more stable reading. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the later chapters, learning a great insight about the Dear Leader himself. It showed the 'great' life of him and what he wants, what he needs and what is the solution. Actually right now, the dear leader is dead. As a person from a divided country, I really think that Michael Breen (Author) ha [...]


    4. Mike Breen was writing about the Dear Leader and North Korea long before it became trendy. Few Westerners have had such access to Korea - north and south - as he has; still fewer can provide insight to the country in such an accessible way. He has a lightness of touch, and the ability to give us the insiders' perspective all the while understanding the outsider's point of view.


    5. A murderous buffoon who reported for scoring a hole-in-one in his first game of golf, who kidnapped South Korean filmmaker couple in order to improve North Korea film industry, who indulged in luxury while his people starving, Kim Jong-il was indeed a bizarre character. He managed to maintain an iron grip on his people by using heavy propaganda, putting them into gulag, and maintained some secret way to earn all the money to maintain his high-maintenance life. While I regard him as a crazy man, [...]


    6. Overall a good biography of Kim Jong-il by an erudite and experienced author. The book does feature some questionable anecdotes and statements which are not all adequately credited with sources, which is always a dangerous thing to do, but even more so with North Korea. But overall, a nice and worthwhile book.


    7. Back in 1998, British journalist Michael Breen published The Koreans, a breezy look at life on the southern half of that most perilous of peninsulas. In Kim Jong-il: North Korea’s Dear Leader, he shifts his sights northward, poking around the infamous “rogue state” and gathering up insights about its leader, a man Newsweek dubbed “Dr. Evil” and George W. Bush, in a customary nod toward diplomacy, called a pygmy.The insults get tiresome after awhile. Breen refers to Kim as, variously, [...]


    8. For those North Korean enthusiasts like me, it is perhaps not the best book around. The book is basically a summary of various other books coupled with some commonly found information that can be sourced from .Nonetheless, I gave it a 4 instead of a 3 because it has done well in painting a glimpse of a picture especially for those who can be clueless about the country. The topics that it has summarized ranges from KJI's birth, family, teachers, accession, woman, his secret capitalist nature, nuk [...]


    9. Having wanted to read this book for some time and having read other books on North Korea I'd say this book does give a more than most balanced account of the late leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Il. From the formation of the Kim dynasty to the famine and current nuclear weapons incident (which nowadays is an ongoing topic in the news) I really enjoyed reading this book and finding out that information.


    10. Un po' datato ( tratta fino al periodo di Kim jong-il), ma interessante da leggere; inoltre tratta questioni che non vengono solitamente analizzate in altri libri che parlano della Corea del Nord, qual ad esempio il mercato, l'economia, la divisione 39 ecc. ecc. . Consigliato a chi è interessato alla questione Coreana


    11. The book begin with a rather condensed fact-spewing and number-churning chapters that was rather hard to stomach. And after that the story settled down to more stable reading. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the later chapters, learning a great insight about the Dear Leader himself.


    12. Interesting but had some redundant information. It all depends on how many books you want to read about N.Korea. This one is OK.
