Kurzbeschreibung

From the internationally bestselling author of Last Train to Istanbul.

Ever since Nimeta was a child, she’d done exactly what was expected of her. She married a responsible man she met in college, had two children, and established a busy journalism career—and there was no reason to think anything would ever change. Then one day, while reporting on a protest in Zagreb, Nimeta’s life takes a dramatic turn. Not only does she lay eyes on a handsome reporter who captures her heart, but a little-known politician by the name of Slobodan Milosevic delivers a speech fanning the flames of long-dormant Serbian nationalism. As her love affair intensifies and political tensions build, Nimeta is forced to reconsider everything she thought she knew about family, love, loyalty, and humanity itself. Navigating both the new landscape of her heart and that of her beloved war-torn city, Nimeta must draw upon her deepest reserves of inner strength to keep her family safe. A moving drama set against the backdrop of the crisis that rocked the Balkans in the 1990s, Rose of Sarajevo reveals the tremendous lengths people will go to in the name of love.

Eine bosnische Ehefrau und Mutter zweier Kinder verliebt sich in ihren kroatischen Kollegen. Die eigentliche Liebesgeschichte rückt aber vor den dramatischen Ereignissen während des Bosnienkrieges in den Hintergrund der Geschichte. Wieder einmal muss ich gestehen, dass ich anfang der 90ger von diesem furchtbaren Bürgerkrieg direkt vor unserer Haustür so gut wie nichts mitbekommen habe und dass mir wichtiges Hintergrundwissen hierzu fehlt. Um so mehr war ich beim Lesen schockiert über die furchtbaren Gräueltaten, die an der muslimischen Bevölkerung begangen wurden.
Wie bei der Autorin üblich, gibt es zunächst eine lange Einleitung und detaillierte Beschreibungen aller Charaktere und Motive. Die Geschichte benötigt ein wenig Zeit, um sich zu entwickeln, aber dann möchte man das Buch nicht mehr aus Hand legen. Unbedingte Kaufempfehlung!

Having been born and raised in Sarajevo, I have found that the role MS Kulin assumes Ottoman Empire has had in the history of Bosnia and Herzegovina is not entirely correct. I do not believe that they were many who were sad to see the back of it when it departed. I often heard older generations actually praise Austrian Empire for having greatly improved infrastructure, bureaucracy as well as education in a country stunted and tyrannized by the Ottomans. I would recommend that Ms Kulin reads a Nobel laureate's Ivo Andric's novel The Bridge Over Drina for a very different perspective to her own.
I also felt that the English translation was clunky and without flow.

Being Bosnian myself, I found nothing surprising in this book. I would recommend this to people who are interested in the Bosnian war, but I have to say it was not a particularly good read. At first I was thrilled to read a book about Bosnia by a Turkish author and it was also my first experience with Kulin's work. I honestly found the writing a bit weak (overly-dramatic, too simplistic) at some points, but that made it an easy read.
I will definitely read another book by Kulin, because "Rose of Sarajevo" is not the most popular book by her and I would like to see what else she has to offer.

HASH(0xa2086294) von 5 Sternen I knew about these horrible events, but I’m embarrassed to say that I ... 9. September 2014
Von Angela - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In the introduction to this book, the author tells us that during the siege of Sarajevo, during the war in Bosnia, that “ten thousand six hundred Bosniaks – of whom 1,600 were children – lost their lives. ”Yes, I knew about these horrible events, but I’m embarrassed to say that I didn’t know more about the specifics. I did a little research on my own and also discovered that during the Bosnian War, “Of a population of around four million in 1992, two million were made refugees. In the three and a half years of the conflict, more than 100,000 people were killed. “ (Nick Hawton, History Today vol 59 issue 8, 2009) .These are horrific events, to say the least.

Ayse Kulin for the first part of the book, sets the political stage which was good for me since I was not fully aware of the specifics surrounding the history. I have to admit that for almost the first half of the book, I felt as if I was reading a non-fiction piece on the conflict. I also have to admit that I’m not much of a reader of non-fiction, so I almost gave this up. I am so glad that I didn’t .

Kulin then brings the history to life through Nemeta and her family's story and it was a griping. That's what good historical fiction has the capacity to do - give us a glimpse of what it might have been like. The descriptions of the siege of Sarajevo in some scenes were difficult to read, but so necessary to understand what happened here - the bombing, the starving,the raping, the torturing, the murdering .

The story is about this war, but it also is about a flawed woman, about friendships, about family and about love. I recommend this important story.

Thanks to AmazonCrossing and NetGalley.

HASH(0xa208af18) von 5 Sternen Good Historical Novel if you can get through the first half. 27. August 2014
Von Celia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved Ayse Kulin's book the Last Train to Istanbul. Kulin is a writer who deserves to be better known in the US. She has the ability write a novel that gives the impression of being accurate historically and have interesting character development. I think it is very hard for historical fiction to be both accurate in its history and have its characters be interesting to its readers. Usually writers have to pick either good history or good fiction. Also Kulin shows a picture of more moderate(Turkish) Muslim world.

For example the Rose of Sarajevo shows Muslim women who have careers as journalists. Not only are these Muslim women journalists but they travel by themselves, drink alcohol, smoke and have affairs with Christian men. These women have either considered leaving or have left their Muslim husbands. The men who threaten these women's lives aren't Muslim but the Serbs who are Orthodox Christians.
The first half of the novel is somewhat confusing as it goes into the history of the break-up of Yugoslavia. The different ethnic groups are hard to keep track off. I think the book would have benefited by an introduction that give more of the history of Yugoslavia and the different ethnic groups that formed that country.

However, by the second halve of the novel, I realized that the Serbs were Orthodox Christians that seemed bent on a Nazi like expansion of incorporating all areas where the Serbians lived (even if they were the ethnic minority in that location) into the new country of Serbia. The Serbians are out to destroy the Bosnians. The Bosnians are Muslims. The Muslims are in this area of Europe because of the Ottoman Empire. Some are descendants of the Turks and some are descents of the indigenous people of the area who converted to Muslim religion when the Turks occupied the area. Another ethnic group in the area is the Croatians who are Catholic and unlike the Serbians are not genocidal to the Bosnians.

The second half of the book is good but sad as it tries to show a Bosnian family trying to survive a Serbian siege of the city. The people are real and have their human problems.

The Rose of Sarajevo is a good book to read if one doesn't mind a sad subject and can make it through a somewhat confusing first half of the book.

HASH(0xa2086df8) von 5 Sternen Well written and engrossing 5. September 2014
Von Abra39 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a well written book by a good author. I agree with other reviews that she goes rather densely into the history of the Bosnian war and that can be a difficult slog. I also know that the history is complex, that many are lacking knowledge about the breakup of Yugoslavia and she is trying to do justice to the history behind her work of fiction. I didn't follow everything but I was still invested enough in the characters and the plot to continue reading and feel my investment of time was well rewarded.

I found it a moving portrayal of the impact of war on ordinary citizens. She describes the atrocities of ethnic cleansing in a way that allows us to experience it through the varying personalities of her well developed characters.

The story of a woman torn between duty and genuine feeling for her husband and the depth of her attachment to her lover is well depicted and realistic. The love story is not gratuitous and allows her to create people that are real to us and not stick figures in a historical drama.

I was impressed with the ending which doesn't go in to contortions to tie things up in a neat little bow for us. We are left with a family we care about and able to imagine the impact of this (as all) terrible war.

Having been to Croatia in 2000 to visit a friend who was greatly involved with refugees, this book was a great help to me in understanding the situation in the Balkans in the time previous to and during my visit..
although the translation may not have been the best, I enjoyed the book very much.

HASH(0xa209c2a0) von 5 Sternen A highly biased exaggerated story. 18. August 2015
Von hadi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The writer's attitude toward the Balkan issue is highly biased that has let her to exaggerate in every single aspect you can assume. Insterad of a Bosnian culture I was expecting to confront during reading the book, it was totally a Turkish family's culture! You cannot revive Ottoman empire by saying all Ottoman territory's contries are the same. It got much worse when she was describing 30 years ago's culture. Moreover, the last 20-30 pages were a higher scale of disgust I experienced in my life! I'm originally Turkish and have been in Balkan, middlestearn and eastern europian countries and I can say she has depicted her own life in the story based on the stories she made up in her mind about war, love, culture and resistance. I didn't expect to read something similar to Tolstoy's books, but come on, did the publisher even read that before publishing it? Genocide happened in Balkan, that's correct, but don't include your fantasies about a war inside that. I checked the numbers about genocide in wikipedia and they were highly exaggerated. Just comparing this book to Slavenka Drakulic books regarding the Balkan issues, I can say I totally wasted my time.
