I can't believe I let this book sit on my shelf unread for so many years. Ok, maybe its length is intimidating. And to be honest, I am only halfway through. But what a great read on so many levels: journalism, history, and literature. I am marking passages worth coming back to, and am finding them throughout.

Part travelogue, part history book, Dame West takes the reader on a fascinating journey from Vienna to Beograd, and all points in between.
The same problems that plagued the Balkans over 70 years ago still take place today. Her penchant for details is unyielding. Although over 1,000 pages, a must read for those seeking a clearer understanding of Balkan conflicts, both past and present.
