There are parts of the book that will make you cry; others that will make you laugh out loud. In general, however, the book seems to be what it claims it is: a great first-hand account of the newest country in Europe.
Beyond the political and socio-economic issues that stand at the forefront of the book, stories about what it is like to live with Albanian families in Kosovo give the book a great personal touch. What they eat, how family relations work, gender issues, etc., are discussed and described in a way that is both educational and informative.
I recommend this book for all of those who are interested in the Balkans in general and Kosovo in particular. This is also a great read for students interested in going abroad, for sure.
