“Without judgment or commentary, the book lets the voices of the survivors relate this harrowing search. The result is a powerful portrayal of a country still suffering from the effects of war.” (Financial Times)
“[Tochman's] style is all the more powerful for its restraint: outrage speaks terribly for itself, needs no hype, no color.” (Sunday Times [UK])
“[Tochman] relies on suggestive details on suggestive details, pungent quotes and simple, understated prose that is mannered at times but powerful in its own way.” (Matthew Price - The New York Times Book Review)
