Review Les Cavaliers Les Cavaliers Summary ☆ 8 N to the king's hospitalHumiliated by his defeat and anticipating his father's bitter scorn Uraz decides to leave the capital and the modern world he doesn't understand In order to wash away his shame Uraz intentionally chooses the most difficult route over the great steppes; he wants to make his journey a triumph even greater than victory in the buzkashi would have been During this odyssey which lasts for months and of his steadily worsening physical condition Uraz stops at nothing to tempt fate and wreak vengeance on himself Recklessly he crosses through the mountain gorges so narrow his horse can hardly pass; he traverses barren plateaus where only wild dogs roam Motivated by emotions he can barely understand he drives himself faster a.

Review Les Cavaliers Les Cavaliers Summary ☆ 8 The Horsemen is an epic novel of man pitted against nature The setting is Afghanistan a country of rugged landscape and savage winds at the crossroads of Asia where people live today much as they did eight hundred years ago A match of buzkashi a savage tournament of horsemen is to be held in the capital to celebrate the king's birthday Uraz son of the renowed Master of the Horse Tursen is riding in the place of his father who is now too old to participate in the contest Although Tursen grudgingly promises his son Jahil the fiercest of his stallions he bitterly resents his son's replacing him and secretly hopes that he will lose Jahil is indeed the winning horse but not with Uraz as his rider The young man is thrown from the horse and take. July turned itself into Horse Book Month at least in each of my print book selections The Horsemen my final print book for July was written by Joseph Kessel in 1966 and translated two years later The book was made into a film in 1971 with Omar Sharif sigh playing the main character Uraz I can assure you without spoiling anything that the outline of the movie given at its Wiki page is vastly different from the plot of the book I would say that perhaps the director felt that Uraz as written would make a despicable lead role for anyone even Omar Sharif sigh so he decided to alter the storyline enough to give the character some redeeming featuresHe had none in the book Uraz was solely interested in and concerned about himself I have never been as disgusted by a main character as I was by this man He was harsh cruel ignorant deceitful paranoid and above all else immature His one reason for living was to try to prove to himself that he was a better man than his father Tursen one of the most famous horsemen of the country Piffle Uraz was just a thirty something year old infant in an adult suit Everything that happens to him as the story goes along from breaking his leg in a royal buzkashi game to the difficult journey he undergoes when he runs away from hospital is due solely to his own emotional immaturity and overall foolishness I wanted to smack him upside the head on nearly every page Usually when I dislike a main character as much as this I do not continue with the book but I had to see what would happen I had to see if he would wise up at the end or continue being totally Uraz and nothing but thatBesides that curiosity I was enchanted by the trip through Afghanistan that reading this book gives Set in modern times at some unnamed date before the Soviet invasion of the country but after a time when the sound of planes passing overhead no longer makes even the most isolated shepherds look up to the sky The Horsemen will transport any reader with imagination to a country that fascinates The Hindu Kush Kafiristan The Bamyan valley The lakes of Band e Amir We visit them all We meet the poorest of little nomads known elsewhere as gypsies and the noble great nomads whose leaders ride Bactrian camels as they migrate with their flocks and herds We explore markets see ram fights sleep in caravansaries that have hosted travelers since ancient times and we play buzkashi This can be a harsh book but Afghanistan is even now a harsh land Not too much has changed there in several centuries let alone a mere 50 or so years There are some horrible scenes of cruelty towards animals and women Well woman There is only one major female character in the book Basically this is a story about primitive men You must be prepared for that I imagine there are still many men of this type in the country Truthfully there are many such men all over the world it is simply that some are better at pretending to be civilized than others And the horses What about the horses Again a reader must be prepared for harshness There is love and respect for the horse but they are expected to obey without uestion anything that is asked of them Uraz does not even feel love and respect and he has the greatest horse of all Jahil a stallion trained to be the best at buzkashi and given to him by his father This horse endured than most horses face in a lifetime A favorite chapter of mine was Jahil s Revenge where he gave Uraz a demonstration of his pride his nobility and his loyalty It made an impact at the time but will Uraz remember the lesson in the future and behave differently towards Jahil Will he finally understand himThis is a complex book Or maybe I have become complex myself since first reading it thirty years ago I know I picked up on a lot undercurrents than I noticed back then Perhaps the next time I read it I will see even And there will be a next time because even with all of its brutality it is an amazing adventure But I do not plan on seeing the movie When you know after reading a few sentences of plot outline that the movie is so very different from the book it is better to avoid the irritation Even if it does star Omar Sharif sigh
