This book dragged it times. Sometimes it was just a straight forward this happened then this happened then this happened. The interesting parts for me were where the author described encounters with the bureaucracy and the militia checkpoints and the general absurdity of the situation in the Balkans as well as the logistics of how these resourceful aid workers actually got things done in some pretty Kafkaesque situations.

I found this a gripping and entertaining read. The author's attention to detail is incredible. Border Crossings in some ways reminded me of Dispatches or Homage to Catalonia. The book's strength is the narrow perspective it provides that virtually puts the reader in Bosnia. It provides an up-close view of one small part of the war as the author would likely have experienced it.
