This is the best fictional book I have read in 2007. The author is able to bring the characters to life in such a way that you feel your are actually observing the story as it takes place. You get a clear impression of what it was like in Afgahnistan before the Russians invaded and after the Taliban took over. The trauma that takes place is so powerful that I had to put it down at one point because I was overwhelmed with emotions. The ending, although not necessarily "happy", is hopeful.

This is a fantastic book for all readers of all Genres.
