Journal Entry 1 by wingolagoriewing from Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Wednesday, March 19, 2014

8 out of 10


Åsne Seierstad entered Afghanistan two weeks after the September 11 attacks and followed the Northern Alliance into Kabul where she spent three months. Disguising herself by wearing a burka, she lived with a bookseller and his family in Kabul which provided her with a unique opportunity to describe life as ordinary Afghan citizens saw it.

A really great book!
