Maroshan The Books are good, but let's red

Judy Someone to Run With is set in Israel not Afghanistan.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Judy wrote: "Someone to Run With is set in Israel not Afghanistan."

Similarly, the (sub)title of Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia would suggest it's not set in Afghanistan ...

Garth I voted for A Thousand Splendid Suns. Great historical fiction, even though it's a little slow in the beginning. If you find yourself about to give up on the book, skip to chapter 21 (that's about one third into the book): at that point, the story really starts to pick up.

I wrote a post on the book for Newsworthy Novels, a blog that matches novels to today's headlines (the headline that day was about the Taliban increasingly targeting Afghan women for attacks): http://newsworthynovels.blogspot.com/...
