Second book about Croatia that I managed to read this year. It has dark undertones, as opposite to the sunny and relaxing vibes in The Secret Cove in Croatia.
It's about the experience of a Croatian girl during the (former) Yugoslavian Civil War in the 90s.
Will write more after I finish another book about Croatia in 2021. ( )

I happened to visit Dubrovnik about five years after the war in the Balkans ended. My most enduring memory, all these years later, is walking along the walls and seeing all the bright orange roof tile. I was told by a local resident that anything that was bright orange was a replacement for a roof that destroyed during the war while the duller, brown ones (which were very few in number) were the places that somehow managed to survive. I have no way of really knowing the truth of that statement, but Dubrovnik remains one of the most hauntingly beautiful places I've been able to visit.

The same could be said of Sara Novic's novel "Girl at War" -- which is the story of Ana, a Croatian girl who was 10 when war came to Zagreb and what she needed to do to somehow manage to survive (both the war and beyond.) The novel is beautiful, engrossing and haunting with an incredible ring of truth to it. I'm definitely glad I finally had a chance to read it. ( )

Girl at War is a snapshot of the life of a young girl in Croatia during the Balkan Wars through part of her years in college. There’s no real conclusion. The first 1/3 is extremely difficult to read about her experience in the war. The rest is the aftermath. It’s a good book, with an extremely close-up view of the war & how it messed up a young life.

Started off a bit like many other war books with kids not truly understanding. Her relationship with Luka helped balance the horrors with survival that friends have. What Ana experienced and had to do to survive after her parents died at only 10 yrs old seemed so real. Effectively shows how while a war is going on people still try to lead somewhat normal lives accepting the dangers as just part of living. Surprised at how Ana never could tell the people in America what happened but then was willing to go back and relive so much. ( )

A gripping novel about the Serbo-Croat war of 1991 and about being caught between cultures. A terrific, wrenching, and very well-written novel. ( )

Throughout, “Girl at War” performs the miracle of making the stories of broken lives in a distant country feel as large and universal as myth. It is a brutal novel, but a beautiful one.
 
Nović excels at distilling visual poetry from action scenes, and there is one section in the middle that steals the show, when the shellshocked young Ana drifts into a twilight community and becomes an accidental combatant. “Suspended between living and dead”, Ana has become mute, except for the mantra: “Forward grip, gas chamber, cleaning rod, bolt, frame, magazine, function check.” Nović has breathed fire and ice into these pages. Immersing herself in the darkest materials, she has given us the real stuff dystopian fantasies are made of.

I had come to Yugoslavia to see what history meant in flesh and blood. I learned now that it might follow, because an empire passed, that a world full of strong men and women and rich food and heady wine might nevertheless seem like a shadow-show: that a man of every excellence might sit by a fire warming his hands in the vain hope of casting out a chill that lived not in the flesh.
—Rebecca West,
Black Lamb and Grey Falcon
I see pictures merging before my mind's eye—paths through the fields, river meadows, and mountain pastures mingling with images of destruction—and oddly enough, it is the latter, not the now entirely unreal idylls of my early childhood, that make me feel rather as if I were coming home.
—W. G. Sebald,
