Wow, really good. I tend to shy away from bestsellers in real books because there are just so many other great books that aren't bestsellers out there. But, of course there is a reason this one is so well known and loved. And, it was really the perfect audiobook. Read by the author, you get the infliction of the voices in Farsi-turned-English speaking like only someone who knows that life can do.

This is my second Hosseini book and probably not my last. Great pace and while there is tragedy and love and loyalty, it isn't your usual typical story and keeps you pulled in to the very last bit. In fact, the end was a bit slow. At first I was a little perturbed, but really, the author knows best and it led up to a great ending to pull the story all together.
