    This is the true, autobiographical account of how an English journalist covering the war in Bosnia stepped out of his passive professional role to save threatened orphans and how one of them, Jelena Natasha Mihalijcic, returned to the UK with him to become a member of his family. The movie, Welcome to Sarajevo, based on this book fairly represents the Bosnian side of the story. This book, originally titled Natasha's Story, goes on to describe, more personally, the English side of it.

    I really wanted to like this book. It's about a war correspondent rescuing an orphan girl from Bosnia - what's not to like? And given that it is the only book I've read on the Bosnian war, I appreciate learning something from it. But it is, after all, written by a BBC war correspondent and the writing is just too choppy and disjointed. There isn't enough flow to narrative and not enough history given to create a rich background for the conflict he describes. Still, if you haven't read anything about Bosnia/Serbia, this is a good primer to make you want to learn more.

    work as a reporter is amazing and pride job and a very tough and dangerous career
    it is a wordless story and movie it is hard to say that a little girl was saved and change its destiny
    by running away of war and damage
    am proud to translate the movie subtitle in to Arabic and one day may be i could publish it as an Arabic book about Serbian War

    The children must be saved, only they are innocent, the rest of us are the guilty ones.

    Its a pretty moving tale of a young orphan girl rescued by a British war journalist juxtaposed with the Balkan war between Serbs, Croats and the hapless Muslims. Why the Balkans erupted after the end of the communist regime is difficult to understand as it remains unprecedented in contemporary Europe. I mean there were other failed communist states which did not fall to chaos, apart from maybe Chechnya. I got a pretty good idea of the Balkan war in the 1990's but could not understand the hate among the population. There is something seriously wrong with the whole region. The brutality demonstrated by the Christians both Orthodox and Catholics in the Balkans is stupendous, much worst than the Africans. Much more has to written about this war, it's reasons and it's implications.

    Interesting to read this 20+ years later, not so much for the story of Natasha and her adoption but more for the historical content related to what happened in Serbia and the parallels to the current worldwide geopolitical situation, in particular the plight of so many refugees at Europe's doorstep. Interesting, too, to read about the behavior of certain journalists in pursuing this journalist's story on his return to England -- a quick check shows that at least one of same actually faced legal troubles for similar conduct some 20 years after this book.

    Not sure about this book as it was a strange mix of history and personal story but the two didn't blend well. Interesting to learn something of the Balkan conflict but not sure how I feel about a journalist smuggling a child out of her home country, especially as it all seemed rushed and Ill thought out. I'm glad Natasha has a good life as a result of being rescued but worry this story could encourage others to break the rules in ways that may not always be good for the child.
