I'd never read any of Khalid Hosseini's books before, so, when I saw this advertised as an audiobook, I thought I'd give it a go.
I was not disappointed: this was one of the most powerfully moving books I have ever read. By writing about the lives of 2 ordinary, yet extraordinary women, Hosseini paints a vivid and gripping picture of life in Afghanistan during the past 25 years.

True literature gently opens the mind like a spell. Words flow into the reader's soul like water and paint pictures of the places and the people that populate the story. Such is Hosseini's work as he takes us into the lives of a beautifully human people as they struggle to live and grow in a hostile, dangerous and hate filled place. Read it, share it and grow yourself.

The writing and performance are done well, but the story is just too hard to stomach. It was a book club selection. That is the only reason I even tried it, as I hated The Kite Runner, by same author.
