What an incredible read I paused several times during the course of reading this book and reflected upon other war books that I have read in the past This short book provided points of view from multiple people who are going through about the day A lot happens as this is set during insurgency during the day and the narration perspectives shifts and spans in a rapid pace by the end of the book the reader is left with a complete picture of the event as if we are getting a picture from all directions It moves fast but the author holds her reigns close and tight thus delivering a good book


Assia Djebar one of the most distinguished woman du nouveau Epub #220 writers to emerge from the Arab world wrote Children of the New World following her own involvement in the Algerian resistance to colonial French rule Like the classic film The Battle of Algiers enjoying renewed interest in the face of world events Djebar’s novel sheds light. Wonderfully structured short book that tells the story of one Algerian day both normal and pivotal March 24th 1956 In many ways the novel resembles the Wandering Rocks chapter of Ulysses 22 intersecting characters pass in and out of the town suare and hand off the baton of narrative as they go The novel begins with tragedy and the perspectives of 4 very different women one permanently cloistered in her home; one living alone with her husband rebelling in the mountainside; one in jail; one condemned in town as a spy whose morality defies the expectations of the town From there after a pivot chapter with a policeman the book switches to the perspectives of 4 local men each of whom will be altered by the women It's really well thought out and the characters particularly Cherifa the cloistered woman are wonderful The war and action seem very far away at times and I liked how the reader is made to supplement the book with research how the battle on the mountain feels like a 3 D television at the edge of most of the seuencesI did feel that scenework melted away a bit as the novel went along it was written uickly and it sometimes shows in the second half The book also trails off then ends which might be an obligation of structure but still felt disappointing My secondary reading has mainly talked about CHILDREN in context as a feminist work of sociology and it serves that essential purpose well but one shouldn't overlook Djebar's essential novelistic skills and evocative writing either Recommended

This novel is a history fictional novel set in a small Algerian city near the mountains in 1956 The author described in this book the general changing lives of Algerian women and men in a small city during the Occupation and the beginning of the fight for Independence The author is a great story teller who gave us a general and realistic picture of how Algerians lived during that era and the small but important changes occurring within the Algerian society The author chose to narrate this story through 9 chapters thus through 9 different characters 5 women and 4 men whose lives are interlinked Some characters are well developed while other are barely detailed This chosen structure makes it difficult for the readers to be able to identify with a specific leading character to learn in detail the intimate and personal lives of Algerians to feel captivated andor fascinated by the story Most of the story is set during one full day in 1956 but it is difficult to follow as the story jumps from one character to another one side of the story to another and one time to anotherTo conclude this is a good book for the reader interested in a general overview of the lives of Algerians during the Occupation and the conflict for Independance but not if you're interested in a reading detailed descriptions of the lives of Algerians and the war
