review Les Hirondelles de Kaboul ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free 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. The first two pages and I was hooked This is a beautifully written novel that will punch you in the gut have you wanting to throw it against a wall in disgust make you weep for the tragic characters and fall in love with the writing And yet it is also here amid the hush of stony places and the silence of graves in this land of dry earth and arid hearts that our story is born like the water lily that blooms in the stagnant swamp You could almost read the first two pages and have a full understanding of Fundamentalist ruled Afghanistan under the Taliban The writer took his wife s name as he was an Algerian soldier and wanted to escape the censorship of the military I first heard of this book listening to The BBC World Book Club Podcast in archive Yasmina Khadra The Swallows of Kabul Jun 5 2015 This is the story of two Afghan couples living in Kabul no they are merely surviving I really do not like to give away anything It is set the late 1990 s or early 2000 s Two vastly different couples but they will be violently yet passionately come together The author stated he wrote with the idea of wanting to understand the times he lived in and that from his point of view life is not worth living without the love of a woman This is very clear in the novel by my reading yet how he does this in a culture in which women are hidden almost invisible is the tragedy a Shakespearean tragedy set in modern times This book is hard on the emotions and I can see why so many people gave it fewer stars than I It is gut wrenching But at the same time it is beautiful It also drove home to me personally on why I am so thankful to live in a country that separates Church and State I say that as a practicing Christian In the middle of nowhere a whirlwind spins like a sorceress flinging out her skirts in a macabre dance yet not even this hysteria serves to blow the dust off the calcified palm trees thrust against the sky like beseeching arms Several hours ago the night routed by the dawn and fleeing in disorder left behind a few of its feeble breezes but the heat has scorched and smothered them Then without warning at the foot of the mountains singed bare by the breath of raging battles rises Kabul or rather what s left of it a city in an advanced stage of decomposition

review Les Hirondelles de Kaboul ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Sts move toward their destinies The Swallows of Kabul is a dazzling novel written with compassion and exuisite detail by one of the most lucid writers about the mentality of Islamic fundamentalists and the complexities of the Muslim world Yasmina Khadra brings readers into the hot dusty streets of Kabul and offers them an unflinching but compassionate insight into a society that violence and hypocrisy have brought to the edge of despair. A starkly grim picture of life in Kabul under the Taliban It s written by an outsider so the events are not based on any personnel experienceThere is the Taliban is all of it s violence whipping stoning executions and preaching The characters include the jailer of a prison used to house women to be executed and his dying wife Also there is an educated couple who have lost everything and the wife refuses to leave the house as she would have to wear a burka There is a lot of conflict between the couples no happiness and no hope But the star of the book is probably the descriptions of Kabul it s destruction decrepit building heat dust and entrapmentThere were times the writing was great but I had problems with plausibility of the character s motives
