Book Review Breadwinner

The Breadwinner is a realistic fiction book about lack of egalitarianism. Egalitarianism is about equality between men and womens rights. The protagonist is Parvana the antagonist is the Taliban. One of the important relationships in this book is between Parvana and Shazia because they are strong friends and because they have a lot of things in common. The Breadwinner is a book about a young girl and her family who live in Afghanistan. Parvana, the protagonist, struggled under the oppression of the Taliban rule. The major themes within this book are true in this world.

The action took place in kabul and the majority of it took place in the middle of the book. The characters were believable because it is based on a similar situations that happened. Does the author adequately describe them the person in the world that I think Parvana is like Malala because they both want to have equal rights.The reason a dislike one part of the book is Because of the extreme violence, it was too scary.

Since the Taliban took over Afghanistan 11 years before the start of the novel, Parvana has rarely been outdoors. Barred from attending school, shopping at the market or even playing in the streets of Kabul. I like the book it has really good words that gets my attention. I would recommend this book in the I found the book really great because it shows what is happening in Afghanistan. I would rate it 6 out of 10 because it has juicey words but it is a little scary.Parvana wants equal rights with men and boys because girls and women don’t have school and work. It tells us that girls don’t have equal rights as men in some parts of the world, even today.
