Just wanted to mention this "must read" book, a real treasure, that I received as a gift. Wasn't sure if I would enjoy a novel about Afghanistan but could not put this book down. It follows two girls from childhood to adulthood in a society that becomes oppressive and intolerable. This is the same author who wrote The Kite Runner (I didn't read it and am heading for the nearest bookstore) The writing itself has beautiful descriptions and evokes emotion.
