Book Review: The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway


Genre: Historical Fiction
Ages: 14 and Up

     This novel was absolutely amazing from start to finish. From the moment I began reading it, I knew that it was going to be an exceptional story. The characters in this novel were very realistic and relatable, which I loved. The plot line was smooth and the ending was unexpected, yet satisfying in an odd way. Overall, I highly recommend reading this novel, because it contains messages that all of us can most certainly relate to.

     In the midst of the Siege of Sarajevo, a young cellist decides to play in the streets of his beloved city for the 22 people who died during a mortar attack. Three others: a father, baker, and sniper find themselves attached to the cellist and his music, and with time come to find who they really are, and what sacrifices they can make in order to preserve their humanity.
