    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    "No Kite runner by far"
    Overall

    Just awful. Full of characters with no appeal and chock too full of Farsi terms. What makes this worse is there's no logic to when they terms are introduced. Sometimes in a context where the meaning is obvious, the term is "defined". Other times when there's NOTHING to suggest what it means, no english explination is given. VERY frustrating. If the Kite Runner was a home run, and it was, this one is a strike out. To carry the metephor to its next step, its more like I was hit by the pitcher.
    Next time give me a character I can like or respect and prose that flows. Niether is found in this dud.
