@Elentarri and Ani:
A great summary of the background of (inter alia) the background of the Rwanda and Bosnia genocides, as well as a fascinating inside view of those conflicts from the POV of the U.N. in chapter 2, and ditto on Kosovo in chapter 3 -- great follow-up reading to Clea Koff's Bone Woman!
Why on God's green earth does the audio version of every other book written by an Asian or Latina woman and putting women's histories front and center have to be read by a woman with a super-high voice and a style of narration dripping with saccharine???? This is beginning to drive me nuts -- particularly in this book, which has anything BUT a saccharine content (though it's been irking me for a while now). Arrrrrggghhh!!!
