This book almost feels like multiple books in one because as the main character grows and matures, both his station in life and his perspective on things change. As with Khaled Hosseini's other popular book "A Thousand Splendid Suns," this story really focuses on the relationships between characters, specifically the main character trying to come to terms with what his relationship with his father was really like and his relationship with another young man his age (sometimes he considers this character a friend, other times just the son of a servant). This was a tough read due to what happens to one of the characters early on in the book, but it is a very worthwhile read! If you enjoyed "A Thousand Splendid Suns," you will enjoy this!
