    1. Danielle Fogerty says:

      Fantastic book, I am going to have to find books from this author, she did a fantastic job describing just about everything that went on in Yugoslavia during the 90s and what it was like to come back in early 2000s great great book

    2. Jacqueline says:

      Anything by Janine Di Giovanni wartime correspondent for The Times in the UK is absolutely worth reading.The way she writes echoes absolutely the feelings and sentiments of those truly affected by the war in the Balkans.

    3. Frank says:

      powerful, she goes into all the villages in the region over seven years, she really knows it all

    4. Sarah says:

      Much better than her book on her love affair with a French cameraman Grounded, heartbreaking, and comprehensive Her stories on the children of rape, the men who survived Srebenica, and the women who lost all of their male relatives are heartbreaking She also brings the politicians and warriors like Arkan, Milosevic, and others to life whereas in the past they just seemed like men who were heartlessly evil She gives you a look into their madness.

    5. Lady♥Belleza★✰ says:

      In this account of the war in Yugoslavia, Di Giovanni tries to explain the politics and factions at work here, the armies and paramilitary groups and the motivations behind their actions I could not follow any of that, it is not her fault, she explains it very well, I just don t have a head for those kind of details But in the interviews with the people affected, she interviews people from both sides of the conflicts, Serbians, Bosnains, Albanians and even some soldiers from Britain and France, [...]

    6. Anna Wright says:

      Although I have been living in Sarajevo for the past year, this was the first book I read on the 90s conflicts in the Balkans It s possible that it was easier for me to understand because I am by default aware of certain people and details of the war, but this book clarified an incredible amount A very engaging read because of its memoir format, I would wholly recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn about what happened here during the 90s and why.

    7. Cherie says:

      A Really fascinating Di Giovanni s experience of what happens the destruction of Yugoslavia She uses great narratives to tell the story, with details, profiles of various people Sometimes the details oh god, the horrific rapes, the torture, the mass murders are difficult to stomach But she writes in a sensitive and interesting and descriptive way.

    8. Iselin Rønningsbakk says:

      Janine Di Giovanni is an excellent war reporter and I love her books This book is no exception It s a painful read, with lots of detailed descriptions of atrocities committed during the war in the former Yugoslavia But it s an important book too, and brilliantly reported.

    9. Mirëdon Fusha says:

      A book written with the ink of hate towards thousands and thousands victims of WAR and with the hand that conceals the opressors deeds Run away from this book as if you ve seen an ugly rat It s highly inaccurate

    10. Dana says:

      Fantastic memoir of the Bosnian war.

    11. Currie Underwood says:

      Really good accounts of the Bosnia war and Kosovo war Even though she skips around a lot, the general direction of the book isn t hard to follow A really interesting read

    12. Maureen Flatley says:

      A powerful, amazing, disburbing, difficult must read.

    13. Laurie says:

      Perfect introduction to understanding the break up of Yugoslavia of which I knew very little.
