I enjoyed parts of this book very much. It was interesting to see and understand the lives of women in Afganistan. It was also interesting to see what a difference a beauty school made in their lives as they developed a skill to support themselves.

What I did not like was the author. I do admire what she did and the strength it must have taken. However, she was whiny and annoying and spent way to much time talking about herself and her over dramatized life.

Overall it was not that well written and I would have liked less about her and more about the women she met. I did love the parts about the women and it helped me understand what they have been through and continue to go through and for that I think it is worth reading.

Lara I agree. It is pretty good but the author is dumb. Have you read A Thousand Splendid Suns? It is better than the Kite Runner.
