and ironically, one of the biggest characters in the series is Death. He had a very interesting view on it.
I was quite shocked when they announced his death on our news last night. great writer and a great man.

one of his famous sayings was that Death isn't cruel, but very, very good and efficient at it's job.

I will recommend 'Dear Leader' by Jang Jin-Sung for anyone who is interested in getting a unique insight into why North Korea is notorious for gross human rights violations. Imagine a despot who elevates himself into the status of godhood, and systematically brainwashes an entire country's people into worshipping and obeying him. A government that is more concerned about holding onto their absolute control over their people (such as carrying out a public execution for a farmer who had stolen a bag of rice to stave off starvation), than actually helping their people.

Reading this book has made me extremely grateful that I have not been born in a country like North Korea. How the country is run comes across to me like a large-scale social experiment carried out by a demented scientist.
