HOLY COW!!! What a book!!! When everyone was talking about this book and how awesome it was and I thought to myself ... ehhhhh. I couldn't have been more wrong ... I am SOOOOOO glad that I gave it a chance. I pretty much cried throughout the entire book ... I literally COULD NOT put this book down. I read it in 2 days and NO housework got done at all. With every page that I turned, with tears streaming down my face, I kept thinking to myself that there HAS to be a happy bit coming but there never was (I did laugh out loud at one point though and it was at a time when you really needed to have a bit of comic relief). Beautifully written and very smooth flowing. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend that you read this book, you won't be disappointed.

I also watched the movie after I finished the book, and although the movie was okay ... as usual, it didn't hold a candle to the book. I can't wait to read his second book, A Thousand Splendid Suns.
