I discovered this book a few days back after watching the trailer of its movie adaption. The trailer was stunning. So I searched for it on the internet to know some more about it and found out the Par

vana series! Kudos to myself! :v

This book highlights the story of an eleven years old girl named Parvana who leads a very miserable life in Afghanistan because of the Taliban. Each day comes with new hardship for her and her family. Girls there cannot go to school, women must not come out of their homes, men are bound to grow a beard! Parvana’s father, who actually is quite a scholar person, has to sit on the street to sell things or read people their letters! Can life be more pitiful than this?

I have read quite a lot of these war-related books starting from Khaled Hosseini’s Kite Runner to Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis. Now it’s Deborah Ellis. Well, I can draw a relation among their writings. I feel they all have tried to highlight the effect of a war on children. I believe that they are the biggest sufferer of any war. Parvana and her siblings were also a part of those ill-fated children who just saw their childhood being demolished in front of their eyes! *sigh*

I loved this book. The storyline is brilliantly structured and the style of writing was beautiful and easy to read. Anyone of any age would love it I believe.

As it just ended on a cliffhanger, I am very keenly looking forward to read the next part.

I saw the film produced by Angelina Jolie. Quite informative and interesting. The fact that "hope" is still there anywhere..... that makes the world worth living and the film worth watching.
