This book is about how one woman, Elma Softic, lived in Sarajevo during the Bosnian War and the siege the city was under. I have to say that it was pretty bland and boring to read. I don't know if it is because of the translation or just the content. I had thought that I was reading a book written by a 30 something, educated woman and yet it read as though it was from a child.
To anyone who wants to read a good book on life during the Siege of Sarajevo I would recommend "Zlata's Diary." It was written by a teenager during the war and the author is known as the Anne Frank that lived. While written by a teenager it shows many grown-up experiences and describes in detail how the author lived during the war.
