I had this book for two years, for two years I had been shying away to muster up the courage to read it. Why was I reluctant? Because I knew it had a deep, profound, soul awakening message, a message which I wasn't willing to look in the eye and whole heartedly accept. There are such books, believe me that can speak to you without you even reading them. This book has that mystical power.

When I did, a week ago I was engulfed by the beauty of Khaled's writing.
Beauty is when you are not willing to believe the characters are fictional.
Beauty is when you decide with firm conviction that maybe, in some distant future your child will bear the name 'Aziza'
Beauty is when your weeping becomes second nature, when you begin to understand the great human suffering .
When you realise that you have been gifted. The mere things that we've been taking for granted, the things that we have at our disposal every single day, there are people out there for whom this may seem as a dream, maybe a dream never fulfilled.
You will realize one thing for sure -
To respect and honor Human Beings. For a great deal has been endured by humanity.
For every person we encounter has a story, wants to be understood, every person wants to be embraced, has dreams, wants to be seen.

When you realise this you will start serving, uplifting, giving instead of wanting and getting.

This book will break you.
Break your ego.
Break your desire for needs shoved through the wrath of consumerism.
It will break your heart into a million shards.

I urge you to read this unforgettable book. Let it take you down heartbreak zone. And liberate a sense of empathy, compassion and meaning that is in you, already. And that which the world so desperately needs.

Its a lovely book, very heart touching.
The book goes into great depths about the horrific struggles all these people faced..
The story is told in the eyes of 2 women living here..
I can't even imagine living in such dire circumstances ever and so the book is definitely an eye opener for all of us who are ignorant about such hardships!

The book was in good condition..!

One of the most beautiful and poignant tales I've read in recent times. Khaled hosseini is a master storyteller of the traditional kind, simple words bring such a whirlwind of emotions.. it's a page turner, very moving.. reiterates that family does not necessarily mean blood relations and that love endures through everything

Khaled Hosseini.... The name brings to mind the grim yet compelling land that is Afghanistan. Once regal, now it stoops under the weight of Taliban. Yet the stories are as rich as its kebabs. Hosseini's characters Mariam and Laila stay with the reader long after the final page is turned. Beautifully written, evocative prose and a powerful story.

I finished this book after the recent bombing in Kabul. This book which is beautifully, splendidly depicted on misery, fightings, fraternity, nang and namoos of people out there. Their crisis, loses, women slavery on the name of islam. It is fiction but surely this book has lot resemblence with history of Afghanistan, their tragedy.
At some point i thought islam is haram and people perceiving it too due to rules and regulation imposed on them for the sake of islam. And still those retarded laws, beliefs are persisting at muslim holmes across the globe. Indeed, islam is beautifull but the people who took responsibility of it in past weee corrupted and fickle minded. As some invaribility and misconceptions are cases for other religion too. Current people can't blame one person what they get in heredity.
After eeading The Kite Runner, i got obessed with Hosseini sir for taking the legacy of Afghanistan and spreading across the world with his writing. After two brothers and father- son story with background of astounding Afghanistan, here is talenof two sister-wife which eventually developed love mike mother and daughter writtennon the backdrop of misery of women in Afghanistan which has similarity with the misery of women everywhere in world at any extinct. Mother sacrified for her daughter and led to good ending note of tale. This book questions to our ancestor intellectuals who just passed on deterioted leagcy to generations which somehow made gode made world shameful. People don't understand making life hell of others as because your life hell too won't let you get anything just curse.
Bring change, not follow anything or everything ritually which you got as heir like it will definitly mean we are blessed to give those wicked to our heir too. Guts needed.

Mariam is a saint in the eyes of mine and laila is a battler with beauty stored up with a fine intellect .hosseini doesn't fails to make his readers cry as it is his usual trap for making his characters successful by giving them the harderst struggles of life .
