    " I now want to read more non-fiction bc of this book. It was a good read, but multiple storylines with no real conclusion. Just kinda ended. "

    " an interesting peek inside afganistan - not much beauty - inside or out. while the content is disturbing, the writing isn't graphic (thank you) just bleak "

    " Mandatory reading at school. Ended up over-analyzed. Not of any literary merit. "
