    I kept putting off writing this review Not because I did not like the book, far from it It was primarily because the experience of reading this story, talking about it, is intensely emotional for me I lived this war Entire generations of citizens of ex Yugoslavia have had their life path shaped by this warI am no exception And though I count myself lucky because I haven t lost as much as manyI got to keep the most important thing my immediate family the same time the war steals something intangi [...]

    In the introduction to this book, the author tells us that during the siege of Sarajevo, during the war in Bosnia, that ten thousand six hundred Bosniaks of whom 1,600 were children lost their lives Yes, I knew about these horrible events, but I m embarrassed to say that I didn t know about the specifics I did a little research on my own and also discovered that during the Bosnian War, Of a population of around four million in 1992, two million were made refugees In the three and a half years o [...]

    I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I visited Croatia over the Summer and was struck by how little I knew of the war that occurred in the region back in the 90s I wanted to know about it but wanted to learn from fiction because it s much enjoyable And then I saw that this book was due to be released this month and I was able to get a copy through NetGalley which I was really excited about.Mission Accomplished This author had meticulously researched the Yugos [...]

    I received this book in exchange for a review through netgalley I recently went on a trip to Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia, and of course I knew about the Yugoslavian war before, but after this trip I got interested in learning and wanted to read historical fiction set in this period I was so excited to come across Rose of Sarajevo The book gave me exactly what I wanted I now know a lot about the war than I did before The book had a bit of a slow start for me The first half involves a lot of hi [...]

    This was my first encounter with the Balkans history, though I live very close to the region I didn t know anything about the war in Bosnia and Rose of Sarajevo was a brutal first date I read so many books about WW2, about the wars in Iran and Afghanistan, but nothing about this one and it shocked me After all the Nazis and the Russians did, there still are things that shock me in every book about war Rose of Sarajevo tells the story of Nimeta, a Bosniak journalist that falls in love with a Croa [...]

    Ultimately, it didn t matter that the words leaving Milo evi s mouth were a fabrication It only mattered that they were designed to inflame.To help them achieve their goal, Serbian television broadcast a constant stream of propaganda alleging that the Serbs were under threat from the Albanians, that their lives were in danger,My knowledge of the conflict in Yugoslavia in the 1980s and 90s was fuzzy at best This book set me straight, with a little help from But I do remember the 1984 winter Olymp [...]

    I have been lucky enough to receive this title as a digital Advanced Reader Copy ARC , and I have to say, both the author and translator deserve kudos for the almost finished product I read.The Yugoslavian Peninsula and its recent, bloody history are ingrained in the common consciousness of most people born pre 1990s Between news coverage and diaries of teens and children who lived through it, in varying degrees of survivorhood, one cannot help but to have knowledge that something horrible happe [...]

    I loved Ayse Kulin s book the Last Train to Istanbul Kulin is a writer who deserves to be better known in the US She has the ability write a novel that gives the impression of being accurate historically and have interesting character development I think it is very hard for historical fiction to be both accurate in its history and have its characters be interesting to its readers Usually writers have to pick either good history or good faction Also Kulin shows a picture of moderate Turkish Musl [...]

    This is a novel in two quite distinct parts The first tries to set out a fairly detailed and often quite dry history of the implosion of Yugoslavia in the years following the death of Tito The progression of events is often difficult to follow and the impact of the callous inhumanity of the notably Serbian politicians is diminished, as wrapped up within this recounting of history is a Danielle Steele style romance between two TV journalists, Nimeta a married Bosnian woman, the central character [...]

    This feels like the author s attempt to novelize the entire history of the Balkans from the mid 80s through around 1993 I mean, there are characters and everything, but they are flat and lifeless, and I felt absolutely nothing for them, even as they suffered injury rape murder and all that It s really weird how a bad author can turn something that should affect me emotionally in a very strong way into something that affects me less than reading about the events on The whole thing felt very contr [...]

    I received this ARC from netgalley I found the book very compelling albeit a bit confusing in the beginning unless you know the configuration of old Yugoslavia A map would have been a handy reference Once I figured out the various republics, the book started making sense At times it was difficult reading about the atrocities the Serbs committed on the Bosniaks But all and all a compelling book about the Bosnia Serb conflict

    Historical fiction providing explicit and personal detail of the Balkans crisis and the fragmentation of theYugoslavia Difficult to follow at times due to my poor knowledge of the shocking nature of the Serb Bosnian war and the siege of Sarajevo A woman s story set amongst the horror of what human beings can do to one an other.

    FactualThe book is great for learning what happened in the Balkans in the 90s and what led to those tumultuous days where thousands were raped, tortured, and killed by the Serbs.

    I have recently returned to this remarkable book, which tells the story of the honourable and heroic people who survived the horrendous war in Bosnia, that took place from April 1992 until February 1996 This was in my life time I was in my early forties when the war started Reading this story, I felt ashamed of my own generation, who were living relatively care free, while ten thousand six hundred Bosniaks of whom 1,600 were children lost their lives The story follows the life of a Bosnian woman [...]

    Our memory, consumed by the constant latest news that targets us from everywhere, become shorter and shorter, to the point that is almost hard to remember that just over ten years ago, not far from where we live our lives perpetually surprises from any threat, other people, that as we lived lives perpetually surprises from any threat, and in disbelief that something could happen to them, found themselves overwhelmed by a war When we think of war, we think of someone who comes from outside to tak [...]

    I have a lot of interest in Balkan history and the breakup of the former Yugoslavia I ve traveled to and studied the region so I was really excited to read this book I loved Kulin s Last Train to Istanbul absolutely loved it I finished that just before starting Rose of Sarajevo By contrast, I really disliked this book It was very well researched and seemingly accurate but it felt like it was a history book that tired to be historical fiction After long drawn out parts of history, it slowly and a [...]

    Nimeta is a Muslim Bosniak journalist whose life is thrown into turmoil when the Balkan crisis of the 1990s erupts Mirroring the turmoil in the area is the turmoil in her own heart when she meets and falls in love with a fellow Croatian journalist and is torn between him and her husband and family Suddenly everything is at risk, in particular the very survival of those dear to her.The personal story is a relatively compelling love story between two people from different worlds, but it is the con [...]

    I listened to this book as part of the Kindle Unlimited subscription that I have decided to cancel It is a story of a Muslim family set during the war in the 1990s It gives some nice historical background, but all very one sided This does not mean that the information is incorrect, but creates hate against the other side without any understanding of the other side s views Good guys and bad guys undertake atrocities against each other during warscent revelations about American soldiers s treatmen [...]

    This novel is set during the rise of Slobodan Milosevic and the subsequent war in Bosnia in the early 1990s Reading it, I realised that I am shamefully ignorant about the origins and course of that war On that level, I m glad I read this book However, the very fact of relating what is effectively a mini history of the Balkans overshadows the fictional side and I found it hard to engage with the main characters None of their issues is resolved at the end and the war is still raging presumably set [...]

    So this book was just full of frustrations for a lot of the characters and for me Like I would have liked to have much explanation for some of the plot I felt that going through some of the history of the area would have helped me understand the characters much than I did and I would have taken a bigger interest in the book too I also felt that as much as I loved the book I felt that I would have had a better time and experience if I had a map or guides so that I could understand the complex [...]

    Stephen
    very emotional and heartwarming book about relationships and what people do in the name of love the book itself is based in late 1980 s and early 1990 s with the collapse of the former Yugoslavia and follows events through the eyes of the major characters and the siege of Sarajevo where you feel as though your living through it yourself as the author portrays the scene of snipers and the race each day for survival to get food and try and live a normal life this book was given to me free from net [...]

    while i enjoyed the book and it kept my attention, there were several things that I feel would improve my reading experience i really needed some maps and guides detailing this complex region of the world it was hard to follow the different land areas, religions, and political players And I am incredibly disappointed that there was no epilogue giving me some closure on the fate of the main characters The story just ended leaving me hanging.

    90larda cok kucuk cocuklar degildik, nasil olduda boyle bir dramdan bi haber buyuduk Ayse Kulin herzamanki muazzam anlatimiyla savasi, aski, ozlemi en yogun sekilde yasatiyor

    The story itself was nothing great, but the commentary on the Balkan situation was fabulous and so interesting

    Deepali Joshi
    It s easy to distinguish a good book from the not very good ones The latter is forgotten sooner or later, but a good story written lovingly stays for you for a long time, almost forever You may forget the names of the characters, the story line may fade after some time but the warmth it created when you read it, always always stays Last Train to Istanbul was one of the finest books I have read in a long time Selva and Sabiha are daughters of a respectable retired diplomat Fazil Resat Pasa and li [...]
