really liked it
Read from March 17 to 30, 2012

I loved the writing from the very beginning. There is a part where her grandfather is telling her a story and the author says something like, "he could have said..." and from then on I was hooked. I loved it. The author gave me as a reader permission to imagine and in this story that is set in a time and place that was horrifically unimaginable (although the author does not take you there graphically)it is a wonderfully imaginative story. I stopped reading to think so often while I was reading this book. It wasn't that I was confused or lost, I was just thinking and reveling in my thoughts. I suspect this is going to be a great discussion book (I read it for a club that hasn't met yet)as there is so much depth to the story. One thing that I wish I had done prior to reading the book was to do a little research on the Bosnian war, I believe I missed things because of my lack of knowledge going into the book.
