Крадецът на праскови or The Peach Thief in English, is a Bulgarian roman about the doomed relationship between a colonel’s wife and a prisoner of war.
The main part of the story is told in flashbacks to the World War I in Veliko Turnovo in Bulgaria. The story itself is straightforward but it is an entertaining read. The author does a fine job of describing the atmosphere of Bulgaria in that time, and it’s a beautifully written book.
This is the first book I’ve ever read in Bulgarian, and obviously I did not understand all words and phrases but I’m proud that I’ve completed my first book. Around 85 pages!
