Summary

It’s 1994, and the former Yugoslavia is being torn apart. In England a gang of good-hearted young people are about to set off in a Ford Transit van armed with several sacks of rice and a half-written play. A play which will light a beacon of peace across the Balkans and, very probably, stop the war.

Good listen if you persevere

Book was hard to get into at first but the narrator was excellent and that brought the characters- most of whom were not very likeable! - alive. But the juxtaposition of a coming of age of 20 somethings with the pointless and cruel Bosnian conflict was very poignant. I enjoyed it more and more as it went on

Chris Addison makes this audiobook

His great performance and range of voices make this a good book not the best novel and a disappointing ending.
