A wonderful, compelling book that took my breath away. Yet again Hossieni has based this book in Afghanistan and pulled off the remarkable feat of weaving the history of that beleaguered country with the tale of characters that are completely beguiling. The main protagonists are Miriam and Liala, two women who hail from very different spectrums of Afghani society but who are thrown together by the tumultous society they must inhabit, their relationship is complex and desperately touching.
My only complaint is that I was unable to put the book down and gobbled it up far too quickly, and now I want to share it instantly.

If this is the first BookCrossing book you have ever found, Haere Mai - Welcome.
I hope you join me in this wonderful world


I have tried several times to read this book but despite the excellent writing, I fear the subject matter got in the road.

I have sent it on its journey again with the intention of trying it again in the future.

Released by hand to FutureCat

Khaled Hosseini's writing can never be said to be easy to read. He paints such a vivid picture of life in Afghanistan in the last turbulent few decades that you can't help feeling deeply all the pain and despair he obviously feels for his homeland. But among the sorrow there are tiny touches of warmth, of human kindness, of hope, that alleviate the horror just enough to keep you reading through your tears, so that, as Braemar says, you find yourself unable to put the book down.

Amazing writing.
