I loved the story and would recommend it but the ending was frustrating. not happy it finished like that
If you could sum up Home Fire in three words, what would they be?
Different, though provoking
What other book might you compare Home Fire to, and why?
Not sure this work could be compared to any other.
What does Tania Rodrigues bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
There was a perspective of a class of people that was quite unfamiliar to me. It was interesting to understand the impact of the sins of the father. It would be great if the story was expanded in some way in order for the reader to understand the history of the family.
Any additional comments?
Quite worth the time. Great characters, well written and plausible.
Themes of love, family, terrorism, politics and the constant struggle for identity are threaded throughout Shamsie's modern retelling of the Greek tragedy Antigone.
Disturbingly, the ancient tragedy plays out well in its current day setting.
Through each character's point of view, Shamsie reveals the complexity and uniqueness of the individual that's otherwise hidden behind religious, political and cultural stereotypes.
I couldn't stop listening - it's a compelling storyline, full of characters I became completely invested in, and is brought to life with excellent narration.
I've just finished and my heart is still pounding. A brilliant, heart wrenching, challenging book.
Highly, highly recommended.
