liked it

** spoiler alert ** I would have liked this book more if it were not so sad. I felt like the ending was almost nihilistic, as if the author were actually trying to communicate that people can't change and adapt. Why couldn't Adam go to the Kyrgyz village with Nazira? I felt like there was a strong theme that cultural boundaries can't be successfully transcended, and I just don't think that is true. Because of that, the ending seemed more forced to me.
