I loved this book because it exposed me to another world. Cultural information was woven into a wonderful story of two boys growing up together in Afghanistan. That is how the story started. Then, the author took me on a wonderful journey of life, full of emotion and suspense. I was drawn into novel because Hosseini is a wonderful author. I cannot wait to read more of his works.
I've listen to a book a week for the past six years. Mostly medical and crime thrillers. Jeffrey Deaver, Patricia Cornwell, etc. I decided to take a break and read something completely different. I wasn't dissapointed. This book is rich in its characters and history.
The author does a superb job in reading this book.
It's a must read.
The author is the perfect person to read this book. It has a since of honesty about it that seems to translate a small part of the Afgan plight for the very western mind through a well written story. And again, I really appreciated this author's naration.
I absolutely loved this book. It took me a while to finally get to listening to it but when I started I honestly could not turn it off. In the first part it was a bit hard for me to relate or get behind the main character but once you are hooked there’s no return. This is such a great story and to have the author read the book really makes it special.
i actually enjoyed this book and the story line, but it was very difficult for me at first to get into listening to the author. he was just a little too dry for me, but i eventually go use to him. it did help that he could pronounce some of the ethnic words correctly.
the story is worth listening to. if you can get past the first quarter of the book you've got it made.
