Breathtakingly fast-paced and wildly entertaining! A fantastic read about the survival of amazing characters in an apocalyptic alien invasion. Highly recommendable to read the first book of this masterpiece sci-fi triology!
A story; about Kings and Bastards, Traitors and dwarfs
This book is about an eleven year old girl named Parvana. She has two siblings and a mother and father. They live under Taliban rules which are very strict. The family moves to a smaller house every time that a bomb destroys their old house. So by now they live in a very small house. Women are only allowed to go outside with black burquas and with permission by their husband or father. In the book the father gets kidnapped and Parvana and her mother try to find him. On the way the get beaten up a lot. They only have one possibility left. Parvana needs to dress as a boy to sell stuff and look for her father without getting beaten the whole time. I highly recommend this book to every age group! I love the book because it is very realistic and I think everybody should know that there are still countries were women get beaten up and don’t have equal rights as men!
