  • Insights and warmth

    By thebigif
    In the west we think we see much about Afghanistan and what takes place there. It's all from a perspective of news, disaster and the Taliban. It's very easy to forget that there are people with real lives and with the normal challenges that we all have - wrapped in a culture that is hard to understand and harder for a westerner to accept. This book bought a beautiful insight into the lives, culture and struggles of people who are just like us. Those who want a life full of love, family and hope. The way they view their repression within the framework of their religion is inspiring and unfathomable.

    This book made me laugh, cry, with so much pain and joy. During many chapters my heart would miss a few beats, it would speed up racing and at times I didn't want to stop reading! If you want an understanding of life in Afghanistan, then this is definitely a book to read. It speaks of hardship, friendships, traditions, life, death, beauty beyond what money can buy and then what money does buy, so many issues are covered and then there is Love, which changes the unchangeable. You would think this was a true story. Very well researched information pertaining to Kabul and life as it is over there a million miles away from the safety of our own homes here. However you will feel as if you are there and that reading this book has its own mesmerising effect on you
  • Wonderful enlightening story

    By Poor reader
    It was obvious the writer had experience of real life in Afghanistan. Her understanding of the lack of women's rights in this country was shown beautifully in her story. It is well written and very uplifting.
  • Fantastic, heart warming and eye opening

    By Runnamumma
    Wow what a heat way to raise awareness of the hardship people face because of different religion, culture and beliefs. This was heart warming and I hope it becomes a movie!

    It was something about the cover that attracted me to the book at the airport on my way to Bali-a nice easy read! I absolutely loved the book & couldn't put it down! Sat by the pool & devoured it-great read.

    This isn't the usual book I would read, I only looked at it because I got my regular email from one of the publishing houses that this was the most popular book of 2001. I downloaded a sample on the iPad and then the whole book. I just loved it, an American surviving in a different culture. A fabulous read, would highly recommend it.
