    1. SARAJEVO COME GERUSALEMMEL'argomento è davvero interessante. Ma Karahasan sembra nascondersi dietro spiegazioni tecniche, quasi scientifiche, restare distante. Probabilmente ha ragione Slavenka Drakulić nella sua preziosa introduzione: Karahasan mbra aver bisogno di una nuova lingua per esprimere esperienze che non possono essere sopportate. Come già, prima di lui, era successo a Primo Levi.Però, pagine e pagine dedicate all'urbanistica e all'architettura della città, alla letteratura bosni [...]

    2. Many books are written about historical events during the Yugoslavian War. But how was it like to live in Sarajevo in the 90s? This manuscript gives a short insight into the life of "normal" people (opposed to the many accounts of war leaders and soldiers) during the siege of Sarajevo. People who struggle to keep on with their normal life.This book is short , but Karahasan writes from a very personal point of view and tells us stories that really happened.Some people claim in their review that t [...]

    3. Great book, however towards the end of the book the translator decided to critically comment on war events and make factually incorrect statements

    4. "Me conmovió la belleza del texto y el rigor ético de 'Diario de un éxito', dijo el escritor español Juan Goytisolo después de haber leído este libro. "El hambre, la falta de agua, el expolio, el miedo, la muerte, todos los horrores del sitio de Sarajevo, que se iniciaron en mayo de 1992, son para el escritor [] menos terribles que la destrucción sistemática de una cultura plural", dice Rosa Mora en su artículo "Dževad Karahasan narra el dolor de la destrucción de Sarajevo" ('El País [...]

    5. Der Blick auf eine Stadt ist mit Sicherheit ein anderer, sobald man dort einmal gewesen. Und so erscheinen diese fragmentarischen Essays über die letzten Tage im belagerten Sarajevo nicht ohne Zusammenhang, sondern fügen sich in Ecken und Straßen ein. Und man erfährt das Schreiben als Gewissheit vom Zusammenbruch der Stadt, von der Veränderung, die mit Belagerung und Eskalation des Krieges einhergeht. Der Blick zurück in die Geschichte der Stadt ist somit keine wehmütige Erinnerung, er is [...]

    6. This book was quite hard to read, and it had nothing to do with the subject matter. This is a book that purportedly about the siege of Sarajevo, but seems more interested in throwing about ten dollar words and waxing poetic about the meaning of humanity. The problem is, more often than not, the book ends up feeling more like the ramblings of a hippy at a Grateful Dead concert, who throws around a bunch of deep concepts without really connecting them to what he seems to think he's talking about.W [...]

    7. Now I was in Sarajevo this summer, and feel slightly in love. So what's more natural than by a book about Sarajevo, in Sarajevo?And I loved it, I suppose mainly because the author's love for the city is felt throughout the book. It consists of anecdotes I suppose, about how the human spirit in Sarajevo survived during the siege. I liked that it were mainly musings about what Sarajevo is, what literature concretely means under that kind of circumstances and more generally what culture means, when [...]

    8. A series of meditations on the siege in Sarajevo from 1992 to 1996. He meditates on how Sarajevo was able to achieve such a melange of different cultures coexisting together and depending on one another, and how that unity was affected by the siege. He also meditates on the effect of war on the human spirit and how priorities change as people learn the bare necessities of survival as they face death and grief and struggle each day.The translator of this book has added several footnotes to explai [...]

    9. One of the shallowest books I've ever read. The script was so unnecessarily poetic (even for me coming from the middle-east), with a spice of cheap philosophy. Facts were exaggerated, comparisons were wrong. Sorry for such a harsh review, but it really upsets me when I read a crap book. Probably the writer is a well known and talented writer, but sometimes even talented writers are out of topic. When you don't have a topic, take a break.

    10. Despite this book being quite short, I had trouble finishing it. In many parts I felt I was reading the same paragraph over and over, just worded a bit differently. There was no flow and the whole thing felt very disjointed. I don't know if this was the result of the translation or if it is also this way in the original text. It's also possible I missed the point. Who knows.Either way, I did not enjoy reading it and I learned little by the end.

    11. Some of the essays were rather difficult to read. I think the author used 'big(read pretentious) words' unnecessarily.The one that literature and writing at large are responsible for the armed conflicts from the '90s in ex-Yugoslavia, and specifically BiH seemed very poorly supported, if at all and rather far stretched. However, it is a nice little book that gives many details that non-experts on Yugoslavia might be surprised by.

    12. I've bought and read it during my work-related mission. It's written in a romantic/lyrical way rather than historical facts. Anyhow, for those who want to read something quick and tasty; it's the best book especially if you are reading it in an historical street in Sarajevo.

    13. The cover images now strike me as sadly staged. The suffering behind such is implacable. My jaundiced soul would like to revisit this text.

    14. ni es un diario ni se va de Sarajevo. la describe un poco, las cosas que come y tal, pero luego suelta un rollo tremendo y acomplejado sobre las cosas que son literatura y tal.

    16. I really loved the idea of this book, but the translation was so poorly done that I had to mentally translate everything back to get the true spirit of the story.
