Read from May 26 to 30, 2012

There is just something so incredibly poignant and heartbreaking when one reads about real families in a war zone trying to keep living somewhat normal lives in very unnormal and dangerous circumstances. This book really brought the Bosnian Serbian conflict home to me. When people are forced to live in the backrooms or inner rooms of their homes, trying to keep their families safe and healthy, with very little in the way of food or medical care, work their gardens while being randomly bombed or shot at, it cannot fail but make a deep impression. Demick actually lived in this neighborhood' with these courageous people, talked and ate with them. I admire her greatly for writing this book and bringing to light the real people affected by this horrible conflict.
