really liked it
Read from September 18 to October 13, 2011

Very sobering book that writes in detail about the conflicts in the Balkans in the early to late 1990's--no one comes out looking good here, plenty of blame for the violence to go around, and names are named--as well as a lot of anonymous people that the author met along the way and protects their identities. Very interesting read from a travel writer who wanted to present a more balanced view of the situation, rather than trying to find good guys and bad guys.
