What did I think?
A beautiful story rich in historical culture, story and character development. This book has been on my list for a long time and I am so glad I finally read it. Hosseini writes such beautiful and heartbreaking stories that leave you wanting more, in a good way. I felt like these character were my friends and I found myself wishing I knew what happened to them after the story ended. I love stories that offer me a glimpse into other cultures and countries. This is a must read!
