2000) (The first book in the Breadwinner series) A novel by Deborah Ellis. A political activist whose first book for children, Looking for X, dealt with poverty in Toronto, Ellis based The Breadwinner on the true-life stories of women in Afghan refugee camps. Since the Taliban took over Afghanistan, 11-year-old Parvana has rarely been outdoors. Barred from attending school, shopping at the market, or even playing in the streets of Kabul, the heroine of Deborah Ellis's engrossing children's novel The Breadwinner is trapped inside her family's one-room home. In the wily Parvana, Ellis creates a character to whom North American children will have no difficulty relating.

I discovered this book a few days back after watching the trailer of its movie adaption. The trailer was stunning. vana series! Kudos to myself! :v. This book highlights the story of an eleven years old girl named Parvana who leads a very miserable life in Afghanistan because of the Taliban. Each day comes with new hardship for her and her family. Girls there cannot go to school, women must not come out of their homes, men are bound to grow a beard! Parvana’s father, who actually is quite.

The Breadwinner book . Deborah Ellis keeps action in the story, while still developing the character of Parvana. The writing flows smoothly and was very enjoyable. I liked the whole book, but it gets very exciting in chapters fourteen and fifteen. I think that this book was well written because it lets you understand what is going on in everyone’s head, while being written in third-person. Dec 05, 2018 Aj Sterkel rated it liked it.

Afghanistan: Parvana's father is arrested and taken away by the Taliban solders. Under Taliban law, women and girls are not allowed to leave home. Parvana, her mother and sisters must stay inside. Four days later, the food runs out. They face starvation. So Parvana must pretend to be a boy. It is a dangerous plan, but their only chance. In fear she goes out - and witnesses the horror of avoiding landmines, and the brutality of the Taliban. She suffers beatings and the desperation of trying to survive. But even in despair lies hope. The media is bombarding children with images. How are they to understand the reality of a girl's life under Taliban rule? This book tells about real life in Afghanistan.

Based on impeccable research in an Aghan refugee camp. An honest, heart-breaking and positive story of an act of enormous courage and creative survival in an intolerable environment.

I had been hearing about this book for a while, but being from Afghanistan myself and growing up during this war I didn’t want to read a book that brings back all the horrible memories. I wasn’t ready and I waited. Finally, last week I decided that I am ready and I want to read this book. I have only finished the first book so far and it’s a beautiful story. The author has done a fantastic job. The book is super easy to read and understand. The story is of a young courageous girl who helps her family survive. This is the kind of book I would read with or to my daughter. It’s a book that shows how girls don’t need to wait for a Prince Charming to save the day. This story is proof that girls are strong, courageous, loving and kind. It proves that anyone can do anything and pull through hardships if they put their mind and heart to it. I recommend this book to anyone above the age of 8. I can’t wait to read the next 3 books.

Thoughts: I honestly can't walk two feet without being stopped and having this book recommended to me. This went on for about three years before I finally had enough of this and purchased the Breadwinner. And boy, am I glad I did. No one is more up for female rights than I am (I've probably written about a thousand female empowerment stories), and so this book instantly appealed to me. I loved I Am Malala, so hearing that this was in the same vein was immensely exciting.

The Breadwinner is the kind of book that really anyone can read. Your age doesn't necessarily matter, since this book is written in a way that can transcend from eight to sixty year olds. But the writing wasn't what made this book impressive; the sheer character of Parvana herself, and the story she takes us along, is completely mindblowing. Sometimes, I had to stop myself and reread a section because it thrust me into disbelief. The things women had to go through under the rule of the Taliban - and STILL have to go through -.... it's just heartbreaking. This book serves not only to make us, as kids, aware of this difficult topic, but also spurs us to want to get involved. I was completely gripped the entire time while reading this book, and by the end of it, I was speechless. While, at some points, this is not the most engaging book per se, it is still a fascinating story that kids of all ages will enjoy.

The story was good and the characters were well defined by dialogue and interaction with each other, but there was almost NO description of anything physical. The book is targeted towards preteen Americans, but the author used terms that would be unfamiliar to that demographic and then failed to define them in context. There was a glossary that I did not discover until ten pages before the end of the book.

Further, the dialogue was not always clearly attributed and I sometimes was confused about who had which part in a back and forth conversation. This would be especially difficult for 11-13 year olds, who have less-developed comprehension skills, to know what was going on.

There were hardly any descriptions of the environment, clothing, etc. It assumes that this audience knows what Afghanistan in the 90s looks like and feels like, which-- as a work that is meant to be a snapshot of a living experience for children who aren't from that country-- is uneffective.

I am considering teaching this book in a remedial English class. The great points about this book mainly are its readability and the fact that Ellis puts in enough detail germane to the action of the plot, but almost no extraneous description, or details for details sake. If you look into Deborah Ellis, she seems to be a woman of action, and has raised literal tons of money through charity organizations for Women's organizations in Afghanistan.

The action is fairly quick, and I read it in one sitting. Your typical high school student will not complain as each chapter is short, and the pages turn quickly. You very early become endeared to Parvana, the protagonist through her interaction with her family members. As the book progresses you feel the pangs to continue.

A well written book for young adults. Similar to The Kite Runner.
