Andrea Busfield ´ 4 Summary

Read & Download Born Under a Million Shadows Summary Û PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Andrea Busfield Andrea Busfield ´ 4 Summary Mu ubijeni sestra oteta a on i majka Marija moraju da se oslone na milostinju Marijine sestre ne bi li preživeli od danas do sutra Međutim usvom metežu ljubavi i mržnje Favada ništa nije moglo. In Born under a Million Shadows Andrea Busfield does several things well that make this novel work for me First and foremost she effectively conveys a fascination and beauty of a country which in my mind had so far been euated with images of war and burkas Upon reading Fawad s story and those of his friends and family I feel that I ve been properly acuainted with Afghanistan now Busfield is a journalist who has traveled to Afghanistan and in her author s notes in the back of the book she writes that during her trips there she encountered Afghan children who helped feed their families by begging from or catering to tourists and other Westerners One little boy in particular Fawad was so charming and intelligent that she decided to name her protagonist after him The Fawad of her book is funny devious very bright and certainly charmed me Through his eyes we see what it means to be an Afghan to possess indomitable spirit and humor in the face of much hardship The story as it unfolds is told from Fawad s perspective and this is where Busfield also succeeds A strong and compelling voice can be hard to pull off in this case Fawad s voice won me over completely My name is Fawad and my mother tells me I was born under the shadow of the Taliban Because she said no I imagined her stepping out of the sunshine and into the dark crouching in a corner to protect the stomach that was hiding me while a man with a stick watched over us ready to beat me into the worldAll of us were born during the time of the Taliban but I only heard my mother talk of them as men making shadows so I guess if she d ever learned to write she might have been a poet Instead and as Allah willed it she swept the floors of the rich for a handful of afs that she hid in her clothes and guarded through the night There are thieves everywhere she would hiss and angry whisper that tied the points of her eyebrows togetherAnd of course she was right I was one of themIt is clear that Busfield writes from experience and a Westerner s love for Afghanistan but she does not skim over the troubling issues which are embodied by the difficult love affair between Georgie the Englishwoman who shelters Fawad and his mother and Haji Khan an enigmatic and powerful Afghan man Both Georgie and Haji Khan are making it their life s work to rebuild Afghanistan They have a shared mission and they love each other passionately but theirs is an impossible situation as they would have to overcome too many cultural and religious obstacles to be with one another In addition to being the emotional touchstone of the story through Fawad we also get a simplified and probably biased view of the politics and modern history of Afghanistan how the Taliban rose to power what happened under their rule and what life is like there today Amazingly Busfield manages to intertwine these complicated issues with the narrative without overwhelming it Born under a Million Shadows immersed me in the culture of modern day Afghanistan and the heart and soul of its people in a colorful and touching story

Third in my Afghani series Getting past the title was hard where was the editor on that one and the first chapter or two read like a first novel which it is by someone writing outside her culture I had a hard time at first believing the narrator was male ie separate from author but once we got past those tiny bits of housekeeping a real story began to evolve I started enjoying the Afghan names Haji Khan for instance which I sometimes read aloud just because it was fun and Spandi who is named for a kind of canned meat The caricatured ex patriates James the journalist who sleeps all day May the lesbian who falls for French Philippe grew believable as the book went along sort of like in laws you one day realize you actually like But it was the love affair between Georgia and Khalid Khan that really drew me in It s fraught with difficulties different cultures different religious poppy issues and then that ever so inconvenient war with Americaand I don t want to spoil the ending but when Khalid Khan tells an Englishman who s moping around Georgie to get lost hecause he Khan IS Georgie and she is in him down to his teethwell that line got me I knew just what he meant

Read & Download Born Under a Million Shadows Summary Û PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Andrea Busfield Andrea Busfield ´ 4 Summary Talibani su nestali sa ulica Kabula ali su ostale duge senke njihove okrutne vladavine Za svojih jedanaest godina života Favad je spoznao više tuge nego većina njegovih vršnjaka otac i brat su. When I bought this book I was expecting something like The Kite Runner and a Thousand Splendid Suns I was a little put off by the title of the novel This book is nothing like the Kite Runner and I found it really entertaining informative and a very intersting insight into Afghan Coulture and how they view western coulture This story is told through the eyes of a young boy Fawad The operning two sentances of the book had me totally hooked My name is Fawad and my mother tells me I was born under the shadow of the Taliban Because she said no I imagined her stepping out of the sunshine and into the dark crouching in a corner to protect the stomach that was hiding me whilst a man with a stick watched over us ready to beat me into the world and this is the wit that runs throughout the book and yet there are many serious issues in the bookI loved the characters in this book and found them engagingthis is a uick read and the story flows alongThe only couple of flaws I found with the book was that at times I felt for a boy of 11 Fawad s character is a little unconvincingI did enjoy the novel and while it is not a Thousand Splendid Suns or the Kite Runner it is a great read and I enjoyed it it is a book I would recommend to friends
