To be honest, I have not read many sensitive novels - but this one just blew me away.The book was simply amazing.
When I broke my leg and my wife gifted this to me, I started it only because people had given good reviews and it has been made into a movie. But characters, the setting, the vivid description of Kabul in the 70s, the description of man's desperation, how the secrets tumble out and the climax were simply fantastic.
Even if you are an insensitive sort of person, the minimum this book offers are 3-4 big lumps in your throat.
Fantastic, amazing and wonderful work by Khaled Hosseini.
