Struggling with ethics. Probably gets a more sympathic hearing in Sweden. Heroine Finally failed the moral test in her private life ... Sadly...
The book is far better than the reader, or the production.
The reader could have sounded interested. There were errors in reading & production shouldn't have let this pass. This led to overall disappointment with the book.
If I were the author, I would delete this performance and start again with a different reader.
Love literature - will read just about anything really - I have a couple of favourite authors and of course love the classics
I have enjoyed the Scandanavian writers recently and noticed that this one was recommended. I found the story overall very good, but unfortunately I found the reading of it pretty dull. I also thought that the story was very bitty - by that I mean it jumps from scene to scene and took me a long time to catch up and not really enjoying the story to its fullest capacity until it was rounded up at the end. However, it is an intriguing story and unusual as its about the Yugoslavian mafia - and I wasn't expecting that! Not as brutal, as Stieg Larrson or Jo Nesbo's writing, or even as clearly written and I was intrigued to find at the end of the book that the story was instigated by an unusual true event (notwithstanding the horrors of the Bosnian conflict). It is worth reading, but I was not overly excited by it.
