Un Puente Sobre El Drina
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I started learning serbo-croatian three years ago, my teacher recommended this book, as a difficult but reasonable challenge for my level of knowledge at this point.
Not knowing much about the author, except that he was a croatian and then serb Nobel laureate, I ordered it. I was dissapointed when the book arrived because I received a Russian translation of it and sadly I don’t read any Russian.
I returned the book and now I’m waiting for a copy in the correct language. The one star isn’t for the bo I started learning serbo-croatian three years ago, my teacher recommended this book, as a difficult but reasonable challenge for my level of knowledge at this point.
The one star isn’t for the book itself as I haven’t read it yet but for the bookstore that can’t seem to send a book in the requested language. As soon as I receive the book in the correct language and read it I’ll revise my vote.
Work of fiction disguised as historical work. Probably most famous example of mean spirited and continuous greater-Serbian propaganda in which Serbs are always good natured, good looking and suffering immensly, while Bosniaks are always refered to as Turks, ugly, physicaly imperfect, mean and full of hatred.
Andric’s hatred of Bosnian muslims is well documented throughout his miserable life and this book is just another example of it. Once again, this book is not historical work and should not be Work of fiction disguised as historical work.

Or maybe it The book is about the life of the bridge, built hundreds of years ago it’s a real bridge. Or maybe it isn’t the book, maybe it was just me. I really wanted to learn about the history of this region, which I know very little about. I found it extremely hard to keep interested when there was no continuous personal stories to follow until the very end. I have a little better understanding of the region, but not much. Although beautifully written, I had to make myself finish.

Someone who can really invest the time into a book. This book wasn’t bad per se, but it is very difficult to read in the sense that it drags on and is simply a translated historical account of this bridge. It is interesting and reads somewhat mythologically, but took me a very LONG time to read it.
Long, agonizingly boring historical novel about a bridge, of all things, with some vaguely racist nationalist propaganda thrown in for good measure. The bridge is a symbol of how the Turks are savages, or something.
