The perfect hostage; A Life of Aung San Suu Kyi

This is a very serious and somehow inspiring biography by Justin Wintle where he explains both the background of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Burma's (Union of Myanmar) struggling history under a military junta since 1962.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was only 2 when her father; U Aung San was murdered amidst Burma’s political imbroglios. As if it was a calling for her to continue her father’s legacy, she grew up to become a journalist, pro-democratic believer, a 1991 Nobel Prize Winner and of course a nationalist. She has fought for her country for 21 years now and she has been placed under a home arrest in 19 of them. But that didn't stop her from wining the astonishment not only by the far too long mistreated Burmese, but also the whole world. Even if she fail to bring democracy to Burma, her determination and spirit will always be inspiring.

I’MNOSUPERMANLAH: Wait till you read about her 18 years old son; Alexander Aris, receiving the Nobel Prize on her behalf in Oslo with his very impressive speech. He's 18 for God's sake!!! It gives me goose-bump. I wish I can do that...
