    EPUB é MOBI Les Hirondelles de Kaboul î Hardcover Å YASMINA KHADRA Les Hirondelles de KaboulIf 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 w

    EPUB é MOBI Les Hirondelles de Kaboul î Hardcover Å YASMINA KHADRA Les Hirondelles de KaboulIn the general sense The Swallows of Kabul is a short novel of Afghan life under the Taliban but as with Philip Caputos' Acts of Faith the real message of this political novel is personal and penetrating Here is book made to uestion the logic of fundamentalist rule Here also is an emotionally emptying story of how the central binding power of women has been systematically destroyed by Afghanistan’s culture of war There are scathing commentaries given to the women of Kabul — the swallows of the novel — about the theft of femininity and identity through the assignment of the bura The men meanwhile seem not to know themselves and can only note their losses in the mirroring faces and costumes of their wivesReading Swallows is like reading science fiction without the fiction part; it creates an uncomfortable view of life yoked by the impulses of fun
