I give this 3 stars for doing a realistic account (though with fictional characters) of some very serious material. And I generally like to immerse myself in new cultures through various literary experiences. But I had a hard time getting through all of the unfamiliar language (endnotes don't help me as much as footnotes)...which made it more difficult for me to fully and emotionally connect to what I was "experiencing." I will say this - the pages of listed victims names at the end of the novel is chilling. Absolutely so.
