I did not choose this book - it was selected by a book club. It is not my "type" of book. It was AMAZING. I love it & could not put it down. I would recommend it & would read it again. It's about a boy who grew up in a wealthy family in Afganistan and his relationship with his servant who is the same age. The political upheaval of Afganistan is also an emotional part of the book, but not in a boring overly political or historical way. It's a great book.
