Very moving story! I really enjoyed listening to this.
An amazing book, especially interesting because of the current struggles in the Middle East.
This book was unbelievable, I had no interest in it after reading the back cover, but after a friend's recommendation, I grudgingly started to read it. That only lasted through the first page or two, this story is heartbreaking and I could not put it down. I certainly hope this new author writes more.
Intense. Sometimes overly so.
Extremely interesting! A page turner to say the least! I was not able to put this book down!
A great book. Very intense.
Such an amazing book. Khaled Hosseini gave me goosebumps at times, because of his descriptions and the feeling that was portrayed through his characters!
Beautifully written. An emotional read but one that enlightens you on the old and new Afghanistan.
Story seemed to be lacking. Theme kept me interested.
This book has simply become an all-time favorite of mine. It's not often when a reader comes across an author who can pull on your heart strings. Hosseini did an excellent job enabling the reader to relate to the characters. Simply a fantastic book. Be sure to also read Hossenini's other book, "A Thousand Splendid Suns".
I could not put the book down. A great book full of surprises. It kept me on the edge and tense until the very last page. I am going to read the rest of the books on this author. It is sad to say that this book is based on true story.
Absolutely wonderful... until the ending anyway! I felt the ending was pretty unbelieveable and kind of gratuitious, yet the story until that point was captivating and extremely well written. I really loved this book.
I recommend this book, for the content and the characters. It was good to start and at the end, but somewhere in the middle, it was a little long-winded. I did cry at the end though. Very well formed storyline and the characters were entertaining. Touching story.
A book that touches your soul. Extremely well-written. A+
This was a beautifully written, heartbreaking story of loyalty, friendship, choices and social class consequences. Highly recommended!
This book surprised me as the more I read the better it became. Truly a book you will long remember. I am reading the second book from this author. They say he has passed on and only has three books. I will surely read all three. A good read.
This book is great. It really explains alot of the history of Afghanistan to someone who had no clue about it. Telling the story of two very different little boys was enchanting.
A great book. Worthy of a second read
I really enjoyed this book, at times found it difficcult to put down. It is a story of friendship, betrayal, guilt and forgiveness. I wouldn't have chosen this book myself, but it was recommended to me and I'm glad I read it. There were things I took from it that I will probably always have with me.
THIS BOOK IS ABOUT FATHER AND SONS,UPPER CLASS AND OUTCAST,LOYALTY AND BETRAYAL. A HUNTING NOVEL.
This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I don't usually read historical fiction, but this novel set in Afghanistan really moved me. I kept thinking about this book long after I read it!
Best book I've read /listened to in quite awhile. Such great historical perspective of Afghanistan. The spectrum of emotions.
