I have liked both "Kite Runner" and "Thousand Splendid Suns". This was a different take on life of Afgans esp who have left the country.
First I thought that accent made it sound authentic but then when it was hard to understand some parts and had to listen hard, I wished it was something easier to comprehend without so much effort. The accent in chapter 4 was easiest to understand. There was no need to have that much Afgan accent when narrating events in France.I hope author decides on more western ear friendly narration for next book.
Neela, She was victim of narrow minded society. But she herself is also heartless in places like buying Pari, leaving Suleman after the stroke.
Long but thoroughly enjoyed it. It seems like a play instead of a book with Jay o. sanders doing all those voice improvisations
I am surprised that army was so corrupt if that is true description from Heller's own experience. Also wonder if american army in Afganistan has similar characters and some one will write a book about his experience in war zone on these funny lines.
