Beautiful and harrowing, one gets a sense of what it's like to live in a city under seige. It is amazing what a person can get used to as a matter of survival. The story is told from the views of three people in vastly different situations, but all trying to cope with the Bosnian attack on Sarajevo that lasted three long years. The story is losely based on the true existance of a cellist who played every day at 4p for twenty two days in rememberance/protest of the bombing death of 22 people who were standing in line for bread. In defiace of the shelling and snipers, he played every day without fail. It is around this cellist that the main character's lives orbit. Well worth the read. Highly recommended, esp for book club reading.
