Humor is found throughout all the pages of this book, and you are likely to not only be entertained but feel you are right there experiencing everything along with this quirky couple.
Along with the “trip-tic” and humor is the casual blending in of Czech history and traditions. This is perhaps what I enjoyed most about the book. In addition to feeling as if I were on location as the Glassner’s travel from village to village, I am getting educated in an enjoyable way about what can sometimes be a complex history of the Czech nation.
Amongst the many different childhood reflections, Lenka recalls one difficult chapter of that history when she remembers Czechoslovakia under communist rule. She compares today’s Czech culture with what it was like then.
You get directly involved with the culture and especially the traditions when Leničko (Lenka’s Dad’s pet name for her) spends time with her parents in Moravia. You will learn to love them and each and every character they encountered on this journey. It is a “real life” story about the real lives of individual people as well as a nation beyond Prague.
Lenka Glassner has put together very enjoyable reading for anyone whether they have Czech connections or not. After having read this, you will feel you had just been there as well as feeling you had just made some new friends.
There is something for everyone in this book. Mrs. Glassner has hit one out of the park! My family is Bohemia; we are huge history buffs, and we do not speak Bohemian. So, this book is perfect for us. It will be perfect for you! More than a travelogue, this book lays the love of country in your lap to love.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
A beautifully written book.
