For anybody who has ever had an intergenerational relationship or tried to think they could love a woman incompletely, this story will have the ring of truth. I have had these feelings and committed the same mistakes in my life with similar results. I loved this book so much. Last night, I saw the movie with the same title. It was just as good as the book and cast SO well. But, I missed the detail and narrative that added the depth to the book.
I enjoyed this listen very much. Nobody in the west ever gets to see what life was like in Afghanistan before and under the Taliban, it was fascinating and expertly illuminated. I felt like I was there. Even though it tells a story from a different part of the world, the emotional threads mirrored the emotional struggles I've had in my life with my own adopted brother. I would highly recommend this audiobook because the emotional content feels so real.
