Journal Entry 1 by Ri from Cincinnati, Ohio USA on Tuesday, January 19, 2010
This was a great but difficult read. It gave this overwhelmingly heavy feeling. While traveling in the Middle East I had this same feeling. It is a depth of weight pulling my energy down. This book has beautiful writing and an important story to tell, but it was so emotionally difficult to read.

I agree with Ri that this was a tremendously important story to tell, but oh so difficult to read. I actually listened to it on audio and at times I got so angry at the injustice of it all that I had to pause for a bit. From what I have read about Afghanistan, it seemed to be an accurate depiction of life in that immensely troubled country.

This book was so well-written I want to pull out my copy of The Kite Runner, which came out before this book but somehow I have not read. I imagine, though, that it is just as difficult to handle.

For now it goes on my available shelf. I may save it for the next round of my First Sentences Virtual Bookbox.
