it was amazing

Read the blurb, read Nicholas Whyte's Super Review below (super in length and quality), there's not much else you need to know. What I find most amazing is that - at the time of review - this book's only earnt a 2.5 star average! Given that it is a superbly written account of truly world-changing events, and that you obviously know what sort of tale you're getting going in, and from which side it's going to be told, then I can only presume the low rating is due to people with a "personal issue"...

My only complaint is that the book ended too early. It seemed like it had the firm deadline that the Milosevic trial never did - it was all wrapped up very quickly. We miss out on Milosevic's defense (did the trial even get that far?), some sort of commentary on his death, whether justice was served, what people think about it, a post mortem of the court procedures (in what aspects did it succeed and fail?), there's not even a 'whatever happened to' section for the characters who didn't die or were gaoled. Perhaps there's no greater praise for this book, than I hope to endeavour to find out all this for myself. ...unless there's a new edition in the works.... ;)
