de Tahmima Anam
No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
I can't quite figure out why it took me nearly two months to read A Golden Age, but it's not Tahmima Anam's fault. Her characters are compelling and the period of Bangladesh's struggle to gain independence from Pakistan is a fascinating one that I previously knew nothing about. Good book; bad timing. ( )
I am embarrassed to admit I really knew nothing about the Bangladesh Liberation War and genocide...even with a shallow knowledge of George Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh. So this book was a crash course in that--I was wrapped up in the lives of the characters while simultaneously researching the history of the war (and country as a whole). The book started a little slow and I was wondering how committed I would be, but I was hooked by the end. The audio was fantastic--the reader, Madhur Jaffrey, made you feel like you were sitting with an auntie, telling the story from Rehana's POV. I look forward to checking out the next book the trilogy.
Read Harder: A book about war
This is a simply, nicely written account based on a history I was unfamiliar with, and though it's not earth-shattering prose or a wildly innovative story, it was very much worth a read, and I'll likely wind up reading the followup.
Set against the backdrop of the war for the independence of Bangladesh from Pakistan, women, friendship and love are put to the test. I enjoyed reading this novel and learning a little more of this young country.
Best First Book in the Commonwealth Writers' Prize 2008.
Shortlisted for the 2007 Guardian First Book Award.
I enjoyed this book. It was a story about a grieving widow and how she deals with the loss and threats to her children. I knew very little about the history of Bangladesh and it's quest for independence and found this book to be very interesting and informative.
