I really want to like this book more than I actually do. I didn't like the narrator much. I was interested in the individual stories and histories that the narrator told, but I don't think they were tied together enough. I was a little confused by the different locations--the villages and cities (maybe with the exception of Galina) were a little too generic for me. It seems like there was always a war, but a war that I didn't understand well enough. I saw glimpses of a great book, but something just doesn't sit well with me. I can see why people do like it, but maybe my expectations were too high.
