Couldn't wait to finish this depressing, unhappy tome. I found the life of an Afgan woman depressing. The history of Afganistan depressing. The people depressed by belief and custom. The historical backdrop and storyline carried me through this sorid tale. I thought I might try Kite Flyer but if it is three time as cheerful as this book I will dislike it.
Another wonderful book by this author. My heart aches for the women in this country and what they have to endure. Its pretty bad when you sneak and listen to a book when you are supposed to be working. I too cried, and my co workers are all asking me what was wrong.
Simply the best
Mariam of course. I was interesting to follow her life from a young girl living in poverty through her troubled life filled with sacrifices.
Not that I can remember, but, her narration was, in my opionion, one of the best.
The ultimate sacrifice that one wife gave to the other.
One of the best audio books I've ever listened to, bar none.
I have not read a simular story
it was very moving
it is a great read
I listen to audiobooks when I drive and when I hike.
This novel really held my attention, but I did have to wonder if it ended too soon.
