Film Executive. This was certainly well invested research, for the book is overflowing with the grit and reality of life in Afghanistan. And yet, in a war-torn country, there is a sacred heritage of rich literature. Zulaikha continues to meet Meena in secret to learn how to read and write the exquisite Farsi script and recite the year old tales of Afghan poets.
The snippets of poetry that are included in the story have left me wanting to find out more about this ancient literature. Words in the Dust is my favourite type of book — one that teaches me so much but where the story is so compelling that I do not realise I am learning. There is much that contributes to this compelling nature.
Already mentioned is the original viewpoint — an Afghan girl suffering from a cleft lip. In addition to Zulaikha, the other characters are also rich and varied.
From National Guardsman to Author
One particular character has a surprising twist, showing unexpected depth and complexity. Alongside these rich characters, the plot is filled with emotionally-charged events set against the fascinating backdrop of Afghanistan. It is worth saying that it took me a couple of chapters to become fully immersed in Words in the Dust. Perhaps this was due to adjusting to a world that was wholly different to my own, with unfamiliar names and settings.
