    1. This Afghani novella of only 81 pages is one of the most poignant, moving pieces I ve ever read Upon finishing it, I closed the book and took a long pause to get my breath back this simple story of a grandfather, Dastaguir, and his little grandson, Yassin, broke my heart Written in stark, spare prose with no wasted words, this tragic story encapsulates the whole broken war torn land of Afghanistan through two peasants During the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, a grandfather and grandson, the onl [...]

    2. Vivamente consigliato da Dominga, l ho trovato oggi, per puro caso, in biblioteca e, vista la brevit , l ho preso, come lettura di fine anno.Il libro rappresenta lo spaccato di una realt molto cruda, quella della devastazione bellica in Afghanistan durante l occupazione russa Rappresenta soprattutto il dolore, in questo caso concentrato in un vecchio, che questa devastazione ha portato.Dalla quarta di copertina Il rombo della guerra ha divorato i suoni e le voci Un vecchio e un bambino nella pol [...]

    3. This novella is absolutely stunning Written with the sparsity of a poem, it tells the story of a grandfather in Afghanistan, journeying his his little grandson, who has become deaf when Russian bombs destroyed their village Not too many books are written in the second person But this one pulls it off, and the constant reference to you only adds to the dramatic effect on the reader You go inside the heart of a person still in shock, trying to make sense out of a world that has just been destroyed [...]

    4.

    5. A huge disappointment Many of my GR friends liked this a lot, but not me You learn nothing about the Russian occupation of Afghanistan There is no history in this book, and on an emotional level it fails to properly evoke the horror, suffering and grief inherent to all war experiences Perhaps only confusion is expressed, and this incoherently and through bizarre dreams You can read this in one sitting, but I recommend you spend your time elsewhere.

    6. I have this impression that you can recognise an Afghan writer no matter if she or he writes in English, French or German There is something in the structure of the sentences and the overall melody and atmosphere of the book that makes you think of the mountains and the dust of Afghanistan It s the same with Earth and Ashes , a beautifully written novella or even a short story about loss and grief It shows a man and his grandson, who lost their family and house during an attack of the Russians N [...]
