really liked it
Read in June, 2009

The thing I found the most interesting about this book was it's sense of place and story around Eastern Europe right after WWII. It's a vivid description of a small nameless country which has said good-bye to the Germans, just to say hello to the Russians. It's about politics, corruption and survival. Although it is also a mystery, the mystery does not hold the same satisfaction. But I did find it fascinating to learn about a period of time which is not as familiar to me. I know more about what happened on this side of the Berlin divide than the other side.
