Now you will be able to see the movie which is good too but not as good as the book.

Giok Ping I agree with your review completely.

message 4: by Shirley (new)

Shirley Thomas "...I sometimes shudder at the savage, thoughtless child that was once under this skin."

That was what impressed me so much so long after I finished the book. I don't even remember the names of the characters now but I remember the story and the emotion I felt and identify with.

Mayra Cruz Ortega Excellent review. Thanks!

Tweedledum Halfway through the audio version read by the author. This brings a particularly poignant depth to the story. Wholeheartedly endorse your review Stephen. Have been moved to tears several times. The story is also about the way guilt can eat a person up and turn someone against the person wronged. This seems to me to be the cornerstone of the story.

Shannon I thought your review was GREAT, and I agree! Thank you.

Jerry Bennett I agree that as you read the book it got better and the beginning wasn't very interesting or attention grabbing. But towards the end I couldn't put the book down because the scene with Sohrab because so intense. I also agree that this book made me really hate the Taliban. But i thought that the idea of putting history along with fiction really complemented each other. This is because the history gave the story a sense of reality and made the story more heart wrenching

Tamara Excellent review !!

Yaxin Due to the same reason, I think i will never read it again either. However, I feel like I will never forget this story.

Ken Wonderful review!! It's weird that I came to this book after reading another great, utterly moving novel that was being sold as "the African Kite Runner," Chigoze Obioma's "The Fishermen." Although both are radically different, I see why, and I'm so glad I read both books. High;y recommended that you do too!!

Rose R. "I liked this book a lot. Due to the uncomfortable nature of the story told, I'll probably never read it again, but I'm glad that I did read it once."

- I actually feel the same. Though I really love this book, it was painful for me to read too. But I wanted to know how the story ends and it suprised me and I loved it. :)
