    1. (This review may contain some innocuous spoilers.)Es lo mismo, es lo mismo, Señor .It's all the same. It's all the same, Sir. Whether Cain slew Abel, or Abel Cain.The voice of this book is the Slovenian partisan 'Berk'. He has fought the Germans, the Italians, the Ustaše. He was wary of his own leaders, with good reason. They certainly didn't trust him. Not because he was a coward. No one could question his bravery. Yet he would not join the Party. Perhaps it was only Anton, who fought at his [...]

    2. wonderfully granular epic of slovene resistance to nazis (and their collaborators the "whites",the remnants of Italian fascists [perhaps the most human monsters of wwii?]), and all freedom fighters' good buddies back then, stalin and crew, by one of the most "famous" slovene authors ever. (i guess anyway, i know nothing of Slovenian literature). so at once the reader is immersed in a detailed and compelling day-by-day of slovenian partisans fighting nazis between Ljubljana and Trieste (rough rou [...]

    3. What an exquisite, thought-provoking, wonderfully written novel to throw you into the pits of dark despair and self-loathing for being a part of what we call the apex of evolution - humanity. This read was a displeasure of the highest quality.Vitomil Zupan is one of the great novelists of Slovene literature that almost no one has read. It puts him right up there with Boris Pahor, Edvard Kocbek and Lojze Kovačič - all great authors of the last 60 years, their books titled "modern Slovene classi [...]

    4. It's an interesting book and truly thought provoking at times, yet I found myself bored during a substantial portion of it, and I like my novels to lead somewhere, to arrive at something, rather than simply end in a clichéd modernistic aporia. Very interesting look at the life of the partisans, though.
