REVIEW:- "I really enjoyed this book although it told a very harrowing story at times. I thought the principal characters and their emotions were very well described and explained. I liked how Dragan-initially too scared to cross the street overlooked by snipers- later risked his life to drag a dead body from the street to prevent a foreign news cameraman from filming it. He didn't want the world to think that his country was a place where dead bodies could be abandoned in the street-very poignant. I listened to Albinoni's Adagio in G Minor (played by the Cellist) after I'd finished the book and realised that I too knew the music well but not the name of it. I think the story will stay with me for some time, especially as I know it is based on fact."

I am reserving the book for my husband in the first instance then will try to find another good home for it.

My husband has now read this book and comments as follows:-" An enjoyable read which gives the reader an insight into what happened during the conflict in Sarajevo based on what the author was told by various people."

I am now reserving the book for Sedona72 as I think she will like it.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

This book was given to my friend and fellow bookcrosser Sedona, by the swimming pool this morning. I hope she enjoys it.

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.
