Now for something completely non-running related and probably a bit random. I read this book the other day and I thought I'd share my views on it. "Away From This World: The Afghan Hound" by Fardin Azizzada - wow, what an incredible story. It's about an Afghan refugee and details his childhood in Afghanistan, rife with fear and being persecuted (due to being a minority ethnic group there) and then later his extensive travels in a bid to fight relative safety away from persecution. I hadn't heard of the Hazara people before reading this book hey, but they seem to be yet another minority group suffering genocide at the hands of those in the majority. So tragic and pointless (why? Why kill others because they are different to you??). I really enjoyed reading this book, despite the tragedies that unfold, and although it is a fictional novel, it reads very much like an autobiography.
Do you like to read novels? If so, what are you currently reading?
