the various divisions uite distinct The ending was a bit dry but overall this is one bookvarious divisions uite distinct The ending was a bit dry but overall this is one book recommend for an insight into the breakup of Yugoslavia and what the survivors have to Always You live with An excellent novel that explores theegacy of the past in the former Yugoslavia and ends devastatingly with a verdict that fate and coercion different factors though they may be are no excuse for perpetrating plain evil The novel is picaresue and set at different points in the past uarter century Originally written in Slovenian the author and main protagonist are of Serbian descent and there are memorable characters aplenty Looking back Yugoslavia as a concept was an admirable one on a trip to Bosnia in 2017 I certainly found that most people Wild at Heart (Sons of Chance, looked back wistfully and for the most part itseader Tito avoided the worst aspects of Communism but nationalism was always bubbling under the surface and the methods used to try and keep the federation together were inexcusable to put it politely This book cuts through the cant to provide a rallying call for basic decent humanit.

T Vladan had with his fatherThe writing was excellent The reader is in Vladan s world wondering if he will find his father We know all his thoughts and worries and problems Initially the flashbacks threw me off and I was ost momentarily but I found the author s rhythm is the story and flashbacksI had to ook at a map of the area often I knew where the old Yugoslavia was but which parts are Croatia or Serbia or Slovenia or Slovakia My geography knowledge of the area was pitiful It s better nowExcellent I received this ebook free from the publisher through NetGalley This book alternates between the present day and the narrator s boyhood told in flashbacks The narrator is dismayed to find out that his father that he thought was dead is in fact a war criminal in hiding In the flashbacks he talks about One-Click Buy life with his father until he was eleven in 1991 when his father was called up by the army The present day thread is about his efforts to find his father This book is somewhat depressing and shows that the aftereffects of this war are still present There were formatting problems ie words freuently had a space in the middle of the word Th e instead of The Inocation 1668no page numbers in this version at the bottom of the Redeeming Claire location there are two completeines transformed into gobbledygook Allr ight A ndw he rehSo while I do recommend this book I don t recommend the e version until the formatting issue is resolved The translation was very good Clever plot interesting development but somehow flat ending I enjoyed Vojnovic s style of writing mixing the past with the present mixing anguages and although it is a very hard topic he s dealing with
HE MAKES IT EASY TO READ I WOULD DEFINITELYmakes it easy to read I would definitely it This was a beautifully written novel that transports the reader to the Yugoslavian War and its aftermath Although I do not have any personal connection to the Balkans the story portrayed in this book nevertheless made me feel ike I am a part of the culture throughout the journeyThe book explores the relationship between the son of an alleged Yugoslavian war criminal and his parents There are flashbacks to the son s who is the narrator in this book childhood in Yugoslavia and his ife in present day Slovenia While the backdrop of the the narrator in this book childhood in Yugoslavia and his ife in present day Slovenia While the backdrop of the is the War the book does not actually delve into any war scene However you can feel how the War had rippled through almost every Balkans whether they admitted it or not The novel also explores the relationship between different Balkan ethnicities and how they view each other so stereotypically I would have given the book a 5 star were it not for the en.
