4.0 out of 5 stars Wooden Melons & Tin Sheep., 7 April 2013
By 
This review is from: The Land of Green Plums (Paperback)
I wasn't too sure about this book to begin with but I soldiered on with it & came to love it by the end. I think it's a book that takes time to sink in. It's split into small segments, which switch between the narrator's memories as a child & her life in the then present day, which makes it easy to dip in & out of.
The description of life under Ceausescu is mesmerising. The everyday struggles & terror of the ordinary people: the constant searches, whispers in the street & the man with the dog who always seems four steps behind you are conveyed in an almost poetic way.
