Making of June based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
It is difficult to capture all the merrit of the Making...For me, as a Bulgarian, currently living in the US, this is a real validation of my past experience. The tallent of Annie Ward has registered in a reliable yet beautiful form all aspects of the upheaval in my country at that time through the eyes of a Californian filmmaker who followed her husband in Sofia. It is not the challenges of a sophisticated lifestile meeting the poverty and despair, which makes the heroine strong and helps her become a thriver, but the ability to see through the facade, to change and to love in the grim post-communist ambiance. Thank you, Annie, for a true and caring portrait of my country and its recent history, and thank ou for creating another unforgetacble character of a real woman.
In reading The Making of June, I found myself captivated with every word that I read. The story of the people and life in Bulgaria has given me something that no other book has. Annie Ward has done a marvelous job in depicting the lives and the scenery of this dark and cold country. With every single turn of the page, I found myself not being able to put down the book only to find out what was going to happen. I recommend this book for any mature reader. It is one that you will enjoy and remember always. MQ *****+
