The main reason I bought the book is because I really didn't understand how/why some of the characters did what they did in the movie. And as the movie doesn't allow you inside their heads, you have to rely on a quite a lot of symbolism in order to figure out what is going on at times. Reading the book actually gave me closure that the movie did not.
That said... what an incredible book! It is a tragedy, but it is also a picture of the strength of the human spirit. Though set in the former Yugoslavia prior to and during the war there, the story isn't about the war or the siege of Sarajevo, but the three people around whom most of the story centers (Gemma, Diego, & Gojko) and their relationships.
The book is slow-moving in parts, but does keep your attention. Although I wouldn't classify this book as a romance by any stretch, it will likely appeal more to women than men.

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time--well written, well translated, and the conclusion, while surprising, fits the times.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Not an easy read. For those who lived it - very understandable; for those who didnt not a pleasant book. Real life - a little difficult to follow. DHWPublished 23 months ago by Fl Patriot
Good plot but not the best writing style. Hard to tell if it was all due to the terrible English translation.Published on August 29, 2014 by fab
