The Bookseller Of Kabul
The Bookseller Of Kabul
by Åsne Seierstad
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting insight into Kabul life, 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book gives a fascinating insight into life in Kabul, particularly into the life of women. It is based on the writer's experience of living with a relatively well off family. It definitely has the style of a documentary, the writing is factual and to the point and it does not have the shape of a novel, which perhaps should not be anticipated.

2.0 out of 5 stars the story of a heroine dogged by misfortune who is never really explored by the author, 9 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The Hungry Ghosts (Paperback)
This book tells the story of a character inhabited by multiple ghosts. It is told from the viewpoint of one of the ghosts and several other characters. Because of this, there is no direct revelation of the protagonist's view. Undoubtedly, this is a very unhappy person, (dogged by mishaps caused by her ghosts) who has a difficult and sad life. She is persecuted by her family and later prevented from rejoining it, so she cannot re-assume a relationship with her father, the one person who loves unconditionally.

There is also little shape to the novel, it is really a long list of misfortunes, most of the characters are unsympathetic and self centered. The one person who the reader would like to understand better is never shown through her innermost thoughts. It is the story of a life of limited fulfillment for a good person whose viewpoint is never really explored.

This has been compared with 'The Lovely Bones'; it is not in the same league at all.
