A haunting and gripping book,
This review is from: Broken April (Panther) (Paperback)
A dark thriller set in Albania's Northern Plateau in the inter-war years. Gjorg finds, despite himself, that he is trapped in a blood feud which has consumed the lives of so many of his family for several generations. His path crosses with that of a rich playboy couple from Tirana, whose honeymoon in the mountains ends up being more adventurous than they bargained for.
I couldn't put this book down. It is not exactly light reading - in fact it's bloody depressing - but it's plot doesn't let you go and confirms Kadare's position as a master.
