Mariam...
She was the woman who asked very low demands from life. She was raised without proper love of parents and was sent to marry Rasheed when she was 15.

Laila...
She believed in equality between man and woman. She was taught by her father to be strong and independent. But one tragedy brought her to Rasheed, married him as the second wife.

I adore both characters very much because they can endure a lot of problems. And because I like dramatic stories, I enjoyed reading this book very much.

The book mainly tells the histories and situations in Afghanistan between year 1970 and 2000. I didn't know that women were treated that way in Afghanistan. It was unfair, cruel, and crazy. Kinda make me wanna shoot the bad guys =.=

Anyway, I give this book five stars mainly because of Khaled Hosseini's writing. The explanations, descriptions, and dialogs are beautifully written. Seriously, I was amazed by the sentences and words.
