This book is a lyrical and moving as expected. Hosseini's visual imagery of life in pre-war Afghanistan is a feast of color and sound and taste and action. The characters are richly drawn, their situations at once foreign to an American woman and yet as familiar as the human race. The relationships, the effects of war, the inhumanity of a world where servitude by race is accepted and the skew of human dealings with one another under that system... wow. This was so powerful.
