To be honest, I only read this book because I saw it EVERYWHERE for quite some time and felt that I should probably check it out. I was glad I did (as is often the case with books like that) because I found it to be a thought-provoking, involving and âeducationalâ story that I think many Americans should read to get a better understanding of the life and people in Afghanistan. Although I thought some of the structure of the novel was a little too âcoincidentalâ and tidy, I didn't mind too much. One of the parts that I found most affecting was how Baba and his life changed after coming to America. It reminded me a little bit of âHouse of Sand and Fogâ in that immigrants who are powerful and have professional careers in their own countries come to America and work at low-paying, low skilled jobs. Definitely recommended!
