This book is by Khaled Hosseini. Really, what more is there to say? I knew it would be wonderful. I have to admit that the problem I ran into was that I was comparing it to his previous two books too often.
So, I tried to view this as its own book which it most certainly is and forget I had ever read the other two and that this was the first time I was experiencing Hosseini. It would be pretty difficult to not give anything away.
There are many stories within this one story. The characters are intertwined, although many will never realize that they are.
The story comes full circle, but this is Mr. None of this business going on: Although, I will say that maybe Disney and Hosseini are of one mind. Or at least Sebastian and Hosseini: Yes it is, Sebastian. Yes it is. What have I learned from this book? We the human race have mostly good intentions.
But we mostly do not follow through. We soothe ourselves. We convince ourselves. We justify our actions. Or our lack of actions. We have an "out of sight, out of mind" way of thinking. And sometimes it has consequences that we cannot comprehend.
Oh sure. One thing anyone who has read my other reviews should know is that I frequently complain about: 1. Not making me care about the characters enough 2. Not being able to envision the surroundings - the people, the buildings, the culture, etc. The writing is so rich that I felt like I was there.
My emotions reflected the emotions of the characters. I was invested. I am not ashamed to admit that I went back to chewing on my nails while reading this - a habit I gave up over a decade ago.
You would think this was an edge-of-the-seat suspense novel. But it is heartbreaking. I bet I cried no less than ten times. Granted, I cried when they showed a bear on the local news that they rescued from a telephone pole, so I cry more than the average bear ha.
But it was still really heartbreaking I really enjoyed this book. And I will give you a parting paragraph that is an example of the beautiful writing that makes me savor every word of this book: Now and then, when she turned to tap ash into a saucer, I stole a quick glance at the red polish on her toenails, at the gold-tinged sheen of her shaved calves, the high arch of her foot, and always at her full, perfectly shaped breasts.
There were men walking this earth, I marveled, who had touched those breasts and kissed them as they had made love to her.
What was left to do in life once you had done that? I am emotionally drained. Review coming soon. Too much? A new book by Khaled Hosseini? I am so excited!
