A depressing story of cruelty and oppression in Afghanistan. Tale of two women and their tragic lives. Author's narration is often distracting by his frequent inclusion of Farsi words. The story illustrates the frustration of trying to help a country that cannot or will not help itself.

Picked this up at a booth in IHOP at Watt and El Camino, and I can't wait to get started on it.

My daughter told me about bookcrossing and gave me this book. I have always liked to keep my books and have a large library, but now i wonder - why? I plan to pass this book to a bookloving friend.

I did not enjoy this book as much as I did enjoy The Kite Runner. It is still a worthwhile book to read and I am passing it on to my friend visiting from New Mexico.

I really liked this book. It was not easy to read in that it was so very intense, such painful stories. But the two women in the story, I had to know what happened to them. And I had to pay respect to all oppressed people by reading this difficult fiction of two women. I grew reading it. I grew in my understanding of what it is to live in a war torn country, what it is to live with socially justified oppression, cruelty and violence. It was a painful book, and yet I am filled with hope after reading this story of people in horrible circumstances who respond with honor and make choices that improve the lives of others.

It was tossed to me by a friend whom I was visiting in Sacramento. I intend to see if another book loving friend of mine, here in Silver City, NM has read it yet. If not, I will toss it to her. And if she has read it, I might toss it to the local coffee house.
