I don’t like to give spoilers in my reviews but I will say I thought the Author Richard Richter was an orphan by the age of four and was raised by his aunt. I don’t like to give spoilers in my reviews but I will say I thought the big reveal of Richard’s father was too predictable. It’s hard to say whether the author intentionally made it obvious or was hoping to catch the reader off guard.
While I didn’t enjoy that aspect of the book, the aftermath of how Richard dealt with that information at least held my interest. I thought the setting of Sarajevo in really added to the story as well. The story unfolds as the city is being torn apart by war and the author does a good job in showing what the city was like during that time period.
One of the other problems I had with the book was I felt the writing was melodramatic at times. I’m not sure if part of that is because this book was translated from another language, but there were numerous times where it just was a little too much. The worst examples of this are when you are reading Richard’s thoughts, particularly in the beginning of the book. Nov 19, J. Literary, overly ponderous style with a self-absorbed narrator. From the first pages, one knows the narrator will commit suicide.
Throughout the work, numerous instances occur of not merely foreshadowing but divulging what will happen and which become annoying. Other than the Sarajevo setting, does not add much insight or novelty to the shoah-based genre.
Interesting, a bit weird, not too obvious but just enough to make me guess the “thing” before it was actually revealed. I found this book to be whiney and repetitive at first.
It’s written in first person and seemed very much autobiographical and overly emotional. I experienced the guy to be vague whenever he said something political or philosophical though he was reputed to be a great commentator. He kept repeating that something dire was going to happen that ruined his life and that of several others, but I had no idea what it was.

He appears to be sitting at a desk in a hotel writing about his life with a gun next to his paper. He goes on and on about this circumstance that brought about his ruin and that it was all due to destiny and he had very little to do with the outcome.
He wrote a lot about a German book called Homo Faber. I had never heard of it and could not relate to these references. I did manage to look it up and now have the movie from Netflix here in my home. So much of this Richard Richter book consisted of a conversation about him as a victim that he was having in his own head without much action.
It took place in Sarajevo and even though he wrote of the war going on there, I never got enough details about the war to understand it. I vaguely remember reading about it in the news. I suppose it was about ethnic cleansing. I was tempted to give up on this book, but I knew it had won awards so I continued on. The reason for the character’s despair became crystal clear and I could hardly put it down.
From then on, it was pretty much all action.
Then I was torn as to whether I think it’s good enough to recommend to my book club. It’s pretty heavy reading, through a lot of it. Richard Richter, the title character, is a writer of some celebrity that igpr moving home to Vienna from Paris learns new and stolic, earth shattering information his parents. In response to the news, he travels to Sarajevo, which is in the midst of its own war in The book has an interesting prose, which was difficult to figure out how much was the style of the author and etolica much was due to the translation.
The writing was Richard Richter, the title character, is a writer of some celebrity that upon moving home to Sgolica from Paris learns new and naturally, earth shattering information his parents. The writing was both captivating and frustrating; there were moments of appreciation of a particular turn of phrase, and other monents wishing that Richter the narratorwould get on with his story.
The main plot and twist in the book no worries, no spoilersrelies on foreshadowing; it was something I predicted was happening just a little over halfway there. It didn’t make the book any less compelling, but it does give you time to wrestle with the implications.

It is a person account of his journey for truth in his own life. Classical writing style, many references dtolica world literature- in part quite interesting as it looks at questions of identity, belonging and desire.
Unfortunately, it was overly stylized, too deliberately plotted, somewhat melodramatic and the main characters are mostly not convincing because of the predictable story line.

I liked the book’s call for humanity and civic engagement – and was fascinated by the portrayal of that war as harbinger of new nationalism, anti-democratic developments, anti-refugee sentiments, religious warfare, etc.

All in all, it’s a decent read, especially if you have any knowledge or experience of the war in Bosnia. The was not my “cup of tea.

Unfortunately the filled with coincidences plot and questionable choices of the protagonist push the city to the background.
