Painful. That's all I can say about the last 100 to 150 pages of this book. It started off fine. Mortenson began telling the story of promoting literacy - specifically education for girls - in Afghanistan. I had the book prior to the scandal hitting in April, so the book sat. I finally got around to reading it, so I was skeptical, but it wasn't horrible. By the time I hit the mid-point, I was into the story of building schools, and then Mortenson switched gears. The book took a decidedly self-righteous slant, and quite frankly I got tired of reading about how great Mortenson thinks he is. Whatever. I finished it. I'm done. That's all I can say. This really isn't worth the time - IMHO.
