    1. It's a fresh and convincing perspective of a simple soul's interpretation of Plato's Apology. Beautifully crafted, it entertains and simultaneously allows introspection without ever being Erziehungs Roman.



    2. It is really a shame that the Unbound Europe series has been discontinued. I have not read all of their books, but all of them that I have read were at least good; and most of them, like this one, were great. Many of their releases were also books that probably wouldn't have been translated by anyone else, so their departure will leave a hole in the English literary sphere. At the very least, since this book was brilliant, they went out on a good note that they can be quite proud of.


    3. Narodski ispričana priča o životu Andrije Gavrilovića, prožeta izvanrednim humorom, a ujedno i prvi susret sa Pekićem, naslućuje dugo prijateljstvo.
