An extremely well-written account of life in Afghanistan through the rise of the Taliban and an ultimate escape through the mountains. While the horrors of the Taliban reign are essential to the story, much is left (fortunately for most readers) to the imagination. It follows the growth of a moderately wealthy youngster and his relationship with the son of his fathers servant. It is a conflict of caste, trust, and loyalty.
