Set within the scope of a life of a protagonist born in 1973, we get a bird's eye view of the quest of a generation of young people who grew up in a society that had lost it's connection to values and traditions and even to family connectedness, in the face of the random violence that continued to tear at the fabric of society. It was impossible to separate one's personal experience from the societal experience of terror.
A finely crafted novel of a young man's search for understanding his own victimization leads him to a young woman searching for the meaning of life she lost, due to what transpired in her parents' lives. This is not a love story, as neither of the two are able to form a bond based on anything but trauma. However, together they come to understand more about the forces that contributed to being where they find themselves in the present.
The book does not have clearly define characters and it left me with the feeling that the story could have been better said.
