Editorial Reviews

Review

Sullivan's writing is at its best when he is describing sights and the atmosphere of a country at war - the ducking under stray bullets as well as the visual effect on the landscape . . . His sense of detail is also finely honed, clearly drawn from his own memories * The Scotsman * This is the most thought provoking book I have read in a long time. The Longest Winter would make a great book for a reading group as there are so many potential talking points: the recurring theme of difficulty with communication, the parallels that Sullivan draws between the individual relationships and the war, and how the simplicity of the language he uses emphasises the awfulness of the events. I can't recommend this book enough * The Reading Couch * This is a heart-breaking, disturbing story set in a world that is thankfully unrecognisable to most of us, but one it is important that we learn about. War, Sullivan tells us, is brutal - particularly when that war is between fellow countrymen - but there is also hope here, not least in the bravery of people who risk their lives for others and never allow evil to defeat them * Lancashire Evening Post * His sense of detail is finely honed, drawn from his own memories...the story is engaging... * Yorkshire Post * The author paints a very vivid description of the atmosphere in Sarajevo during the war. The author has done a very good job here. Take my advice - read it * Breakaway Reviewers * 'Glasgow author Sullivan tells a tale about life in Sarajevo during the Bosnian War. It centres on the lives of three individuals, Terry, Brad and Milena, whose lives are entwined after the assassination of the government minister'. * Scots magazine *
