Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Another great list, Thom!

Just a tiny note on tags: I've been able to add a few because I've recently been granted librarian status and am, thus, allowed to edit this list. If I recall correctly, though, before being granted librarian status, I would not have been able to add any tags to this list.

(Which of course still allows suggestions for tags to be made here in the "comments" section. :) )


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yep, anyone has suggestions I'll be happy to add them.

Julie Great list but some of the books on here are about Afghanistan and not Iraq or Iran.

Quite right, Julie, but I leave the deleting to others. I'm struggling to recall if anything in The Kite Runner bleeds over into Iran.....

I don't think so. They fled the coutry via Pakistan IIRC; other than that, it was just Afghanistan and the U.S. (I think when the main character goes back to Kabul later on, he goes via Pakistan as well.)

Melinda Removed The Kite Runner (Afghanistan).
