summery 2: The setting of the novel is placed in the capital of Bosnia during the 1990’s. it starts off with the cellist playing his Albinoni’s Adagio while civilians line up to buy bread. Moments lately a shell goes off and kills all of them in the market. The cellist stayed up all night and all day standing by the window after 24 hours went by the cellist went down by carnage strewn street and played his Adagio for 22 day for the victim in the shelling. Throughout the story there are three main charters whom fight to survive as the watch their city get torn to pieces.
Personal response- the chosen one:
I can relate to this book on a greater level than any other novel listed. The character Arrow bring out the type of person I strive to become every day. Arrow turns into a weapon once she picked up a rifle, she hides her identity to not feel ashamed of killing the snippers. Arrow desire is to help her city, but she was doing it in a way that opposed to her morality. When I go through situation at work were monarchy takes place I wish I could stand up for myself and fight for what I deserve, which Is what arrow does when she stands up for herself to not kill innocent people.
The novel is very uniquely written which drew me in to want to read it. It is an easy novel to comprehend and understand primly because the Autor split up the characters. the way the characters are broken down in to their own sections helps me understand what each character is going through. Each character developed strengths by surviving in life threatening conditions which made them stronger. Daily individuals grow based on their living conditions and the materialistic thing they have to support them.
