This book took my breath away as did A Thousand Splendid Sun's. It amaze's me how this author can introduce all of these characters and weave them together like a basket and actually pull it off. The most amazing thing to me about this book is how Dr. Hosseini ended this book and began this book...awesome literature here!! My only gripe is that I felt sometimes like I was reading a book of "long" short stories and felt there were a few pages that were not necessary...all of the characters yes..but the details..no.

I used more than 5 hankies here, but there were only 2 bouts of tears...near the end, when I realized how it would end (realizing how similar it was to the beginning) and at the last paragraph....but it was a river and so very powerful.

Awesome writing here Dr. Hosseini...please lets get started with another one, I want to read at least one more book written by you in my lifetime. In the meantime I will re-read the awesome 3 you have written.
