"Breath is set in a country recovering from a brutal and divisive civil war between north and south...."

Great story, well told. I enjoy reading about real life things, like lung transplants, in a fiction setting but where the reality of the tensions and challenges come through.

Odd, but eminently readable, story about ethnic tensions, as seen through the eyes of the major players in a lung transplant. Poses a lot more questions than it answers, but I think in this sort of book that's a good thing.

Picked this up at the bookcrossing meetup. This had a bit of a strange story line, between 3 different people. It also kept going back to the war for the man that needed the lung. Thought it was good though and was a worthwhile read.

I left this in the laundry of the YMCA. Maybe someone doing their laundry would like something to read while they wait.

Ho hum!I quite enjoyed it. Rather sad and unsettling but probably the way it is when people are facing these circumstances
