Rating: 4 out of 5

I knew very little about Chechnya before reading this so I have no idea of the accuracy. It jumps between 2004 and years within the previous decade and relates mainly to the people who live in a small village and how their lives and deaths are shaped by the war. Beautifully written but the jumping around the time frames stopped me being as engaged with it even though it did work well.
