Loved this book. I learned so much about the hardships in Afghanistan - both for women and men. The information contained in it was amazing yet disturbing. It certainly makes you appreciate the simple things in life. Would highly recommend this book.
This book was totally absorbing and actually got my heart rate up at certain points! My sister (a teacher) also read this book and when her alarm went off one morning she turned it off thinking, "I am not allowed to go to work...the Taliban closed all the schools".
Hosseini has a way of writing that weaves its way into your dreams! Highly recommend it as well as The Kite Runner!
