review Les Hirondelles de Kaboul Les Hirondelles de Kaboul review Ó 9 Yasmina Khadra Ø 9 characters Set in Kabul under the rule of the Taliban this extraordinary novel takes readers into the lives of two couples Mohsen who comes from a family of wealthy shopkeepers whom the Taliban has destroyed; Zunaira his wife exceedingly beautiful who was once a brilliant teacher and is now no longer allowed to leave her home without an escort or covering her face Intersecting their world is Ati a prison keeper a man who has sincerely adopted the. I still feel very conflicted about this book Originally I had planned on giving it four stars But after having thought about it some I ll be settling for three instead reasons belowWhilst many mentioned that their biggest gripe was getting into the book for me that was hardly an issue I was pretty much full on engrossed from the first page And with a opening page starting with a woman being stoned to death how the hell can I not be Not only did it really make me recoil from shock and disgust but despite the fact that I was sat among others in the library my urge was so strong to shout that I had to put the book down for a minute And there were so many of these moments because the author does not hold back AT ALL There is shocking moment after moment and as these strong unfair rules are imposed of the citizens of Kabul I felt isolated and suffocated right alongside themThis in my opinion is the strongest point of this book It sucks in you in from the very first page and completely holds you captive making you suirm and flinch at the exact intended moments whilst always being very very aware that no matter how hopeful things may seem that everything can go downhill at any given moment And that is apparent followed by the fact that I never expected a happy ending ever I never witnessed a sweet moment without waiting for something horrifying to follow itBut this book also unsettled me in another way I felt manipulated almost at times I got into this book and realised very uickly that the only way to read through it was to accept all that I was being told And although I was a little on the fence about some things I pretty much left them behind as I read on locking them inside until now to really reevaluate my thoughts on this book What I would have really appreciated before delving into this book is how does the author know what he does about Kabul and its people there Has he done some in depth research interviewed men and women who reside there visit or live there for a time Not knowing these things ultimately left me a little annoyed when the female characters felt so black and white whilst the men seemed to have somewhat a layer of complexities to them Because either you have the strong minded educated independent Zunaira or the ever obedient extremely devoted self sacrificing wife that is Musarrat Whilst both of their husbands who also seemed a little off to me but not to the same extent seemed to have depth in contrast Now I m not saying that what they face does not happen because I am aware that times have been extremely toughhorrifying since the Taliban took over but I feel that it s because of this very reason that knowing the facts and accurate details is so much important to me Because as a Muslim if I am being told that this this and this is happening then I need than being expected to go with it simply because you happen to be telling the storyIn the book characters dwell of the past of happier times with pure sadness and longing And it s enough to make me want to see that past for myself because although things were not perfect even then they seemed like happy times times filled with less fear and terror But it leaves me conflicted because isn t there even a tinge of beauty in the most darkest of times I have been Pakistan and I have seen beauty within my home town that I honestly never expected to see And although that s a unfair comparison to make because things are so so much worse in Afghanistan right now I refuse to believe that there is not a hint of hope or happiness in that place that all is lost that it is as hopeless as this book tells me it is Now do you see how conflicted I am Funny since these things tend to niggle at me only after I have finished reading the book It is a bit tougher for me right now because all the community reviews I have read really don t go into personal thoughts when it comes to this book no friends have read and reviewed it so I feel pretty alone on this one And I definitely even now am trying to figure out where I stand with this bookBut I suppose since it has left me so deep in thought it must mean something rightThink I m just gonna sleep on it

review Les Hirondelles de Kaboul Les Hirondelles de Kaboul review Ó 9 Yasmina Khadra Ø 9 characters Taliban ideology and struggles to keep his faith and his wife Musarrat who once rescued Ati and is now dying of sickness and despair Desperate exhausted Mohsen wanders through Kabul when he is surrounded by a crowd about to stone an adulterous woman Numbed by the hysterical atmosphere and drawn into their rage he too throws stones at the face of the condemned woman buried up to her waist With this gesture the lives of all four protagoni. If I had a list of the most distressing books I ve ever read most likely this one would be near the top of the list Like most people who read this short and horrifying book set in Afghanistan during the Taliban regime I was appalled as I read about the brutality and misery that had become commonplace for everyone most especially for women So why read a book like this ask readers who only read for pleasure and uickly abandon any book that might leave them feeling depressed My answer is that for me books are a way to educate myself about the way life is being lived in a wide variety of contexts Unfortunately many of those contexts are pretty depressing Why read about them Because I think it s important for the rest of us to realize how priviliged and pampered we have become living here in our safe and secure little corner of the world where we are free to live the way we choose If nothing else we need to be reminded that for untold numbers of people life is a pretty dismal business This book definitely gets that point across
