it was amazing

This is a difficult book to describe in a nutshell. Beautifully written, but not fast-paced, it's one you sink your teeth into and relish. Only nine chapters, but they're long and told from different perspectives as you travel from Afghanistan to Paris to Greece to California and elsewhere. Hosseini doesn't just tell a story -- he truly weaves it, pulling at different threads until they come together in a tapestry meditating on the human condition and how we hurt the very ones we love the most. If you start this book, stay with it until the end. The last pages made my heart well with a sad kind of joy that only a master storyteller can achieve.
