This book was a little slow at first and, at times, my attention wandered during the lengthy descriptions of scenery. However, the story does draw you in. It is not formulaic or predictable. The characters are complex and mysterious. The end was a bit unsatisfying only because I really wanted to know more. Finally, the book is read really, really well.
As with "The Kite Runner", this book is beautiful and unrelenting in the heartbreak it delivers. It is difficult to listen to and impossible to turn off. The author does an incredible job of making personal and real the toll of war and provides some context for our own nation's current involvements in Afghanistan.
