The Cellist of Sarajevo | [Steven Galloway]

The Cellist of Sarajevo

Snipers in the hills overlook half the intersections in Sarajevo. One man, a cellist, defies this game of "Sarajevo Roulette". In memory of the city's dead, for two consecutive days, he becomes a sitting target as he plays Albinoni's "Adagio" in the street outside his building. But he is unaware that one young woman observes his performance with unflinching attention... a counter sniper, detailed to protect him from enemy marksmen.

    "Well written but...."

    this promised to be a good and gripping story but suddenly it was finished. Loose ends all over the place, it just didn't go anywhere. As a description of what Sarejevo was like in the war it was very vivid, but as a story, completely unsatisfying.

    "Didn't finish it"

    I tried and tried with this one, but couldn't get on with the way it was read. It just felt very flat to me.

    "Excellent"

    very much enjoyed reading the book and when I was too tired to read I equally enjoyed the narration. A very good narrator.

    "Not what your expecting"

    As with many titles this one gives the reader some preconceptions on what the story may be about...

    However what you are given is so much more... This is a very good read for an open mind..

    Though the story inside is not mind blowing I am glad I read this and feel it took war time reads to a whole new place.

    A very welcome surprise from a genre I would have never usually took off the shelf.
