SUMMARY The Wasted Vigil

CHARACTERS ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Nadeem Aslam Nadeem Aslam ↠ 0 DOWNLOAD SUMMARY The Wasted Vigil The author of Maps for Lost Lovers gives us a new novel at once lyrical and blistering about war in our time told through the lives of five people who come together in post 911 AfghanistanMarcus an English doctor whose progressive outspoken Afghani wife was murdered by the Taliban opens his home itself an eerily beautiful monument to his losses to the others Lara from St Petersburg looking for evidence of her. A lost review of mine rediscoveredSatisfying on many levels Balances love vs war trust vs despair chaos vs grounding in everyday beauty of the moment Elucidates the many threads to the problems of Afghanistan while keeping alive the hope that family bonds common humanity and the rich cultural heritage of this country can somehow rise above the hate of various factions threatening its destruction A surprise in the author s approach is that Afghan people are largely not rendered directly but only through foreign characters These include a Brit immigrant Marcus a an ex CIA operative and a Russian woman all concerned with finding traces of a lost family member or loved one as part of the emergent post 911 war or the earlier Russian one The recent killing of the Brit s Afghan wife by the Taliban looms large as the vitality of her memory heralds a template for resilience while the plotting of violent action by a new youthful convert to jihad points to a continued cycle of darkness The Buddhist heritage of the country is highlighted by the cover shot of a sleeping Buddha which Marcus defiantly preserves in secret The theme of waiting for an awakening is a great overlay and structure for this story which moved me by its interlacing of human hopes and tragedies

I was expecting the usual fare when I picked up this novel set in Afghanistan but what I wasn t expecting was to find the author repeatedly misuoting from the uran For most of the story I thought he was just trying to show the reader the jihadist mindset and the erroneous light in which they hijack certain verses from the uran to further their cause But at no point did he clarify this Besides misuoting he also made his characters dish out statements like Islam at its core does not believe in the study of science and The cause of destruction of Afghanistan she said to me towards the end of her life is the character and society of the Afghans of Islam and also attributed statements to the Prophet which have been deemed by a majority of Muslim scholars as falseAnd then the only good Afghans in this story are the ones portrayed as Westernized The rest are made up of an assortment of crude illiterate egoistic and chauvinistic characters At times his writing is brilliant but other than that this book has nothing else to offer
