The Horsemen Joseph Kessel 20 novembre 2009
Par Judith Van - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I read this book thirty years ago. It changed my life. It helped me understand the strength of human will, and of the Afghan character. I am a voracious reader. This is one of the best books I have ever read. Not the most endearing or the most fuzzy and warm for sure, but for purity and beauty of language, image and plot this book is a standout. Since reading it, I understand that it will do NO country good to fight in Afghanistan. The Afghani's will fight until they all die. They won't comporomise. Too bad America can't go back to the early 1900's and start all over with them. They are an admirable people.

human motivations from an uncannily perceptive mind 27 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A tale of a foreign country (Afghanistan), a foreign game (buzkhazi), and a foreign mind. Kessel approachs the wants and desires of anyman/everyman and allows the reader access to the whys and wherefores of these motivations. He plays the reader like an expert fisherman, and one vacillates between loving and hating the protagonists. A must read for anyone who likes adventure and/or treatises on the human condition

A fearful tale of cruelty, arrogance, ordeal, and ego. 15 octobre 1999
Par Margaret Fiore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A unique look at the stubborn inner self, and self-punishment. And a revealing view of humankind.
A proud and savage prince has been trained all his life to win a game that goes beyond a game. He is an outstanding athlete, his father raises outstanding horses, and he and his horse have been groomed and trained to win. Nothing less.
This is the tale of a struggle to deny reality. It is a painful, frightening, revealing, gripping story, and nearly impossible to put down. I have never forgotten it, though I read it many years ago, and I doubt anyone else could forget it either.

Great historical drama 17 août 2011
Par JohnRides - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
This is a great historical drama about the horsemen of Afganistan and the transition between the past and the modern world. You really need to see the movie with O'mar Shariff and Jack Palance first then the book has more context, Kessler is a little overly desriptive of some geography and emotional scenes but that seems to be his style of writing.
A lot of older movies are kind of disapointing when you watch them years later cause the production values are so dated. Not the case with this classic film, the book and the film do equal justice to each other. This is a good read about the relationship of a strong father and son, kind of Lonesome Dove -ish. GOOD READ!

This book provides you with the real meaning of life. 12 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Even if life is different in each country, men are the same. This book, which takes place in Afghanistan, tells you the story of a journey, the journey of mankind on earth. Through a fairy tale, Kessel (as TimO'Brien does) finds out the real meaning of life... what more could you expect from a book?
