    Epub · Home Fire èë Kamila shamsie Home FireJust announced as the winner of Women's Prize for Fiction So happy the novel finally got the recognition it deserves45 rounded up Home Fire is the candidate I support to win the Booker Prize Well I only read 4 nominees until now so it is not a definite opinion However it is highly unlikely that I will make too much of an advancement in my reading of the longlist until the shortlist is published so it will probably remain on top for a while If you read a few reviews you will realize that the novel is based on Antigone Unfortunately I cannot add anything on the subject as I have no knowledge of this classic story and I would feel like a fraud to comment on it after only reading the

    Epub · Home Fire èë Kamila shamsie Home FireI don't give 1 star reviews very often because I feel like I don't read a lot of books I would label as 'bad' And this book even isn't 'bad' in my eyes But when I think about things I enjoyed regarding this novel there's pretty much nothing redeemable for me The characters were flat the plot was paper thin even though I know it's a modern retelling of Antigone I don't feel like that knowledge did anything to elevate the story and the writi

    Epub · Home Fire èë Kamila shamsie Home Fireim not familiar with the story of antigone so i cant comment on how this compares as a retelling but as a story about family sacrifice and identity this is one to undoubtedly make you thinkwhich i have its actually taken me awhile to think about how i want to ratereview this immediately upon finishing my gut reaction was 3 stars its an good story but nothing great it uite short so there isnt a lot of development which leads to a lack of deep connection with the characters even if they are interesting so again its good but not great so why then can i not stop thinking about this theres just something so compelling about this story how its written how its structured and dont even get me started on that ending i think im still in shock theres just a certain uality to this that makes me want to overlook all of its flaws a certain uality that makes me feel guilty for calling this a good story when it feels like so much i really dont know how to explain it so i

    Epub · Home Fire èë Kamila shamsie Home Fire I went looking for a review copy of this when it was included on the Man Booker Prize Long list and was approved for one by the publisher through EdelweissThis is a book that kept morphing as I read it and discussed it and it ended up in a place far removed from my expectations at the beginning Nowhere in the publisher summary or promotional material does it mention that the author is also basing this novel on the myth of Antigone but she has and that proves important in understanding some of her choicesThe author is from Pakistan and the characters have some loose ties to Pakistan and end up there during some of the events but it is important inside the novel that the three central characters siblings are all children of a jihadi who was killed during or because of his military action The characters themselves aren't certain just know that he's gone so I won't give that det
