Yesterday i read this book from start to finish in several hours. i dont usually do that, not even with books i just love. i am typically a quick reader but dont bust it out in one day! i am not sure if the book was that good or if i just really needed to escape, i think its more the later, heavy stuff going on in my life it feels. its a tragic story. makes you think about life, about perspectives, about racism, terror, and war. its a new light of afgahnistan for me. it penetrates so deep that you dream about it and think about it for a few days.
