The Last Taboo

The Last Taboo summary º 8 N't think they will approve of her having a black boyfriend and her nightmare uncles and aunts certainly won't Like her cousin Ruby says it's the last tabooBu I found this an excellent story It s a uick read and when I got towards the end I couldn t have put it down if I d tried I found it uite gripping as events unfolded The race issues gave me much to think about as the things that happen in the book could and probably do really happen I really got involved with the characters I very much liked Simran s parents with the calm way they treated the situation when they became aware of her new boyfriend and the fact that they did show dissaproval of the language that they used

review The Last Taboo

The Last Taboo summary º 8 Imran's not sure how her family will react Even though her parents were a 'love match' and married each other against the wishes of their families Simran does A uick read I wasn t too impressed by this book compared to unarranged marriage I was distracted by the shift in voice between the segments Simran and David in the first person but the cousins s and the grandfather s passages in the third I can t help feeling there s a lack of balance or at least a lack of focus because of this I feel that the oversimplification of the other side detracts from the complexity of the issue It s easy to perceive the cousins uncles as types rather than characters representing only hatred and agressive behavior without explaining the whys and wherefores of this phenomenon In the end it s not clearly explained how the uncles cousins are intolerant while Simran s father brother aren t How can this be given the understanding nature of the grandfather I can interpret the cousins whose actions are guided by the Desi Posse code for on this see Gautam Malkani s Londonstani but the matter of the uncles remains undeciphered given the concluding revelation of the grandfather s personality

The Last Taboo summary º 8 Simran likes Tyrone from the moment she spots him in the crowd He's gorgeous and he won't take no for an answer There's just one problem Tyrone is black and S g r i folkeskolens ldste klasse i London sammen med veninde Lisa De er begge to engelske f ler sig engelske men Simrans familie kommer fra Indien fordi hendes farfar immigrerede til England Simrans mor og far har ogs opdraget Simran som en engelsk pige med engelske rettigheder men den indiske familie i London der str kker sig ud over for ldrene f tre kusiner onkler og tanter g r meget op i indiske traditioner normer og religion Helt galt er det for dem hvis indere kommer sammen med sorte og det g r Simrans far da hans bedste ven er sortDerfor bevarer Simrans det ogs som en hemmelighed da hun bliver forelsket i Tyrone der er sort Simran ser en dejlig charmerende fyr ikke en sort fyr men hun er meget i tvivl om hendes for ldre bliver dobbeltmoralske hvis hun fort ller at hendes f rste rigtige k reste er sort Der g r dog ikke lang tid inden Simrans onkel og tante finder ud af det og s bryder helvede l s ikke hjemme hos Simran men rundt omkring hos alle familiemedlemmerne i London samt p skolen og ude i byen hvor indere g r en masse ud af at man skal holde sig fra sorteEn realistisk love storyBogen er en rigtig romantisk s d og realistisk love story som man ikke kan undg at holde af P overfladen er det den s de p ne pige der bliver forelsket i den lidt utilpassede slagsbror Da vi kommer l ngere ind i historien viser det sig at de passer meget bedre til hinanden end de egentlig selv havde forestillet sig fra begyndelsen Det er i sig selv rigtig smukt men det s de og hyggelig bliver selvf lgelig spoleret af alle de religi se problemer fordommene og bandekrigeneSk nt med en mandlig forfatter der kan skildre pigetanker og venindeforholdSynsvinklerne skifter lidt for meget for min smag Simrans er klart den nemmeste at identificere sig med hvilket m ske er lidt pudsigt fordi Bali Rai er en mand Men stor respekt for det for vi er jo utrolig vant til at kvindelige forfattere kaster sig over drenge som deres hovedpersoner mens det faktisk er lidt mere tabu at m nd skriver med piger og kvinder som deres hovedpersoner S netop i en bog der handler om tabu synes jeg det er virkelig st rkt og forfriskende at Bali Rai lykkedes s godt med Simrans tanker og netop f r skildret en utrolig st rkt venindeskab mellem Simran og LisaFor mange bipersonerVi hopper ogs over til David det er Simrans bror n r bandeproblemerne skal tegnes op og det bliver lidt problematisk fordi David ikke rigtig ved hvor han vil hen med sit liv og bliver en lidt utydelig klon af Simran Der er ogs en del tilbageblik til Simrans farfar da han begyndte som gr nthandler i London sidst i 70 erne Alt sammen for at give os en helhed s vi bedre kan forst For mig blev det dog mere vildledende for der er s mange bipersoner med n vnt ved indiske navne som man ikke kan huske man har h rt om eller ejUddrag af Det sidste tabu Far Han s p mig og derefter p baconpakken i hans h nd Vi m hellere k be det billige Ellers sl r din mor mig ihjel Jeg sl r dig ihjel om lidt S du det par Han s sig omkring men de var g et ned ad den n ste gang Hvad for et par Han lagde luksusbaconen tilbage og tog en pakke almindeligt bacon Nogle gange er du alts h bl s Der var en indisk kvinde med en sort mand forklarede jeg Og Han gik over til disken med p l g Det er da ret ualmindeligt ik Han trak p skuldrene Sikkert Kan Jay bedst lide skinke eller kylling Far Hvad er det De er sammen og hvad s Det gik op for mig at jeg var alt for gennemskuelig Jeg t nkte bare p om de f r en masse b vl med andre andre indere Det kan godt v re svarede han og tog et l s kyllingep l gLun feel good fornemmelse Det sidste tabu er en rigtig god bog som jeg hele tiden havde lyst til at l se videre i Det st rke er realismen i b de Simran og Tyrones forhold og i Simran og Lisas gode venindeskab Dialogerne er ogs lige s hyggelige sjove og sm drillende som de er n r man i virkeligheden taler med sine venner og veninder Det giver bare en lun feel good fornemmelse n r Lisa kan kalde Simran for dumme ko uden at Simran tager det ilde op og bliver forn rmet Det beviser ogs hvor gode veninder de er Da jeg intet kender til raceproblemer mellem indere og sorte i England kan jeg ikke udtale mig om hvor udbredt problemet er nu i 2012 men det m jo v re ganske stort n r Bali Rai ofte fort ller hvordan politiet bliver indblandet i bandekrigene Derfor var det ogs dejligt at l re noget nytKunne v re sp ndende at debattereMan kan hurtigt f r det til at lyde forkert hvis man siger at en bog kunne v re god til undervisningsbrug i folkeskolen for danskl rerne v lger ofte s dan nogle kedelige b ger som de elskede fra deres egen skoletid Men det er ogs derfor Det sidste tabu kunne v re god at l se i klassen for den handler om vores tid her og nu og den skildrer bare s mange f lelser b de pigernes og drengenes at alle kan finde nogen at identificere sig medBali Rai l gger ikke skjul p at han nsker det sidste tabu nedbrudt men derudover er der heller ikke nogle bedrevidende og moraliserende pegefingre n r drengene sl s og pigerne sviner hinanden til og det er faktisk rigtig rart for det skaber et stort rum og en respekt for at man som l ser godt kan danne sig sin egen mening Det er ogs derfor bogen kunne v re sp ndende at debattere i en klasse Der er ikke n sandhed der er mange Ligesom i alt andet her i livet
