Reading Club 5



After reading 'The Kite Runner', I became a fan of Khalid Hosseini. This is his second book and it is gut wrenching. It tells of a tragic story about two women living in Kabul through the Russian invasion and the Taliban uprising. The story unfolds from the eyes of two women and highlights their struggles with abusive men and the issue of subordination. I like the way Hosseini writes- he is detailed and yet he adds enough suspense and twists to keep the plot interesting. It is one book you will not put down. However, if I were to choose between 'The Kite Runner' and this one, I would go for the former. Still, a wonderful read.
