Truly Splendid book
After reading the Kite Runner, I could not wait for Hosseini's next book, and I wasn't left disappointed! This portrayal of life in Afghanistan, which I knew nothing about has truly inspired me. The female characters portrayed in the book come to life, and the book deals with the difficulties that Afghan women experience in a culture way beyond what one could imagine. The story is descriptive and well written. The historical details of latter day Afghan history, only helps to enhance the story. I knew nothing of the history or culture of Afghanistan and found myself drawn into this book and it's characters. Hosseini writes so well, that I couldn't put this book down. I read several books in a year and this one was by far the best I have read in 2007. I just can't wait for his next book.
