Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. I learned a lot about the Kosovo war from the point of view of a kosovar girl which was exactly what I wanted. The story was catching and moving and hit on points you would never see in the news.
What other book might you compare Girl of Kosovo to and why?
What does Julie Dretzin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narrator captured the story very well and kept my interest. I listen while I do data entry at work and I didn't doze off into la la land once.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It was very enlightening. I didn't know much about the war or the country of Kosovo and I feel I have a better understanding. Some parts were very sad but it had a positive outcome.
Any additional comments?
My boyfriend is part Kosovar and was the same age as the little girl during the war. This book really made a difference in understanding him better and I am grateful that I could learn more about something that is hard for him to talk about. I checked a lot of the story with him and it seems to be a good account of how it really was over there. I recommend to anyone who has a thirst to learn about other cultures. It's a great historical fiction in general.
