The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway

The Cellist of SarajevoThe Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story of how people keep living in a city under siege. How do you keep living when you have no electricity, water, food and everything is closed to you. Even going out for a bit of water is a huge risk. Snipers are just killing people, ordinary citizens, as they try to go about their routines.

The cellist saw twenty-two people killed while waiting for bread in line. This prompted him to play his cello one day for each person who was killed.

This will make you take a hard look at how lucky we actually are. A good read.
