The Breadwinner Book Review By:Richard
The Breadwinner is a book about a young girl that lives in Afghanistan and is under the T Taliban rule. Her name is Parvana. The antagonist is the Taliban and the protaganist is Parvana. The genre is drama,realistic,and history. The reason the genre is drama, realistic,and history because the Taliban are real and Afghanistan is real too. Also it has some real history. The major theme for this book is that sometimes war can bring families together because families need each other. The relationship with Parvana and her father is the reason Parvana Knows so much. Parvana also shows a lot of resilience and never gave up. Also she earned enough money to survive. The author wrote this books setting in Kabul Afghanistan during the Taliban was in control. The Author does a good job making you feel like your there by using descriptive words and makes her conversations plausible. The characters are believable because for example Parvana is described like a real girl. Parvana isn’t any character I have seen or heard of before. I like The way the author writes with words because it makes her character more realistic. I was was kinda moved when the men helped Parvana and Shauzia get out of the soccer stadium when it was scary. I was also moved when Parvana and her mother tried to get Parvana out of jail. I liked it because there were real things in it. I think people who like to read about Afghanistan should read it. I found the book fun to read but a little violent. I liked how the author writes and makes it believable. It has a bit reality,a little drama, and a little history.
