While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction. 




The Cellist of Sarajevo - Steven Galloway, Gareth Armstrong I listened to [b:The Cellist of Sarajevo|2475251|The Cellist of Sarajevo|Steven Galloway|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1349080466s/2475251.jpg|2482448] as an audiobook and have not watched the movie

While including snippets of the Adagio that is central to the story as passing music between chapters was a nice touch, I found myself vaguely dissatisfied. Perhaps the pacing was just off to work well as a audio book, or perhaps it was discovering partway through listening that Vedran Smailović was not pleased by how his actions were co-opted for the book and included without his permission. While there were some compelling moments, overall this book was not to my taste.
