    I'd probably get more out of this if I had a better understanding of Albania history (or really any aspect of recent, Eastern-European history). But what I did gather was interesting.

The story is slight, but that feels like its by design.

    Ultimately I can't really say I recommend this, but it certainly isn't bad. It just wasn't for me.
