it was amazing

This story was heartbreaking as was Hosseini's THE KITE RUNNER. The sadistic, incredible violence, especially against women, of the different regimes fighting for power in Afghanistan in the last 30 years made me wonder how such horror can occur. The total powerlessness of people under the maniacal leaders made me thankful for my country. It is a powerful book: another one I couldn't put down. The story of the characters' love for each other is really the best part of the book.
