"Painted and insightful picture of Afghanistan"
It's a story of honour, regret and redemption; and two families divided by ethnic prejudice.
"Great story, shame about the performamce"
really enjoyed the story and his writing style, however the reading itself was very flat and the author doesn't have the voice for it
Tragic and beautiful. I found the experience of listening to the story very different to reading it. I read the book when it first came out, and from the first sentence had instant recall of the whole story. But I am so glad that I continued to listen.
All the more poignant read by the author. Loved it.
It's a little slow to start bit so worth it. A moving story that most Westerners would know nothing about.
"Amazing, heart breaking"
This book is truly amazing and heart breaking. I l was adicted to this book. I loved the metaphors and the beautiful style of writing. I laughed, cried and cried some more! It's a five star book.
An incredibly moving story. Listened to it when driving or cooking and often had tears in my eyes. Once I was used to the reader's accent I enjoyed the fact that I was listening to the correct pronunciation of the names and places.
One of the best books i have ever read, gripping from start to finish
Wow well worth it , narrator great too !!
An insite into the truth
"great narration and story"

Great performance and compelling story. Not an easy book to stomach by any means though!
"Great story well told"
I really enjoyed this book. Sent me through a rollercoaster of emotions. Happy , sad , joy, shock, laughter, sorrow. Great story from the mouth of the author.
