True to the style of his other book - A Thousand Splendid Suns - the author reveals his intimate knowledge of the reality of life as an Afghan during the last 30 years. The story tells the tortured tale of one man and his relationships with father, servants, brothers, and friends. The culture of the Afghan people is apparent as is the the brutality of the two political regimes that occupied Afghanistan during that time frame. A good read in the context of the current events there today.
