Aung San Suu Kyi

Aung San Suu Kyi: A Biography - Jesper Bengtsson, Kim Liebrand, Ceciel Verheij Dry writing; seems as if the author just combined facts about Suu Kyi and Burma during her time, and placed a few quotes by Suu Kyi. Though you learn a few interesting bits, it's difficult to remain with the book as there's no narrative thread or flow. Could have been a promising book, with the topic alone and the writer's own travels.
