Sarajevo is not the only city to have endured a siege, and there are presently cities such as Allepo in Syria that are under siege right now. How lucky we are to live in a country such as Canada.
The book is well written. Mr. Galloway chose three main characters that give us different outlooks on the everyday life of a city under siege. It is depressing to read but difficult to put down. I wanted to see if there was any hope left, if people could see an end to the death and destruction. Each came to a time that they could no longer live with fear but there is no hope in this story.
