Reading this book years after it was written, and knowing that the people of Afghanistan still face tragedy every day, was heartbreaking. I don't know what else to say but would so highly recommend this book.

**3.5** There were some really good moments in this book, but some parts were so slow and oddly paced that I lost interest. It took me a long time to read because I felt like I was trudging through it. The story itself was beautiful, though I do agree with other reviews who were not a fan of the amount of coincidence that the plot relied on.
