Meaghan posts on 7/18/2005 10:21:38 AM The character development in this novel was excellent, and it serves as a base for all of us who read the book to look into our own lives and discover that, truly, "There is a way to be good again."
Marianne posts on 7/11/2005 1:19:32 AM Thank you for giving me a window into Afghanistan, before and after so many wars. Moreover, you have demonstrated again, the universality of literature in revealing the human condition. The themes, the human dilemma posed could have been placed anywhere - in pre- 9/11/73 Chile, in the United States - most anywhere, anytime. Guilt, remorse, evil, atonement are the universals. Assef, unfortunately, exists anywhere, hopefully not often. Understanding Amir and Baba, little by little as the book progressed was in itself worth the read.
JB posts on 7/6/2005 4:24:31 PM I love this book. "For you, a thousand times over" That's all I've been thinking about lately.

Jill posts on 6/1/2005 10:45:11 AM Thank you for such an eye opening book to American who only knows what she sees on TV in the news. I was too young to remember anything but devastation in Afghanistan. I love to read but have never read a book set in the Middle East. It was heart breaking and so intense I couldn't put it down. You have a wonderful gift and look forward to your next book. Thank you for the ride. Sincerely, Jill Jones
jr beckman posts on 5/25/2005 5:06:26 PM I'm probably the least likely person in america to have read this book as i am caucasian business man with no ties to the middle east. I read the book because nothing else was available. I was 'blown away'with my feelings that surfaced during the reading of this book. The book didn't feel like a novel, it was more like a bit of autobiographical purification for the author (and maybe the readers).

Aria posts on 3/17/2005 10:03:25 PM WOW! This book was AMAZING! It was very deep and the plot was so suspenseful. Before i read this book, i was always writing fantasy stories. Now i am working on a story called: Broken Memories. it is about an Afghan girl in Canada who forgets her roots, and... I havent got very far but i hope you email me back on some ideas for my book. Thank you for inspiring me so much, I'm in your debt. tashakur.
Sadaf posts on 3/17/2005 4:37:15 PM I just read your book last week. I love reading and I must say that it is one of my favourite. I am a high school student in Ottawa, Canada however I am originaly from Afghanistan Jaan. I must also say that you are a role model as a writer to me.
