By Khaled Hosseini
What can I say? Family, war and its democratizing effects, on the one hand, the opportunities for humans lacking in principles to flourish, on the other. Connections, empathy for people I could have maintained as my enemies and some seriously poetic and finely-intertwined stories within a greater story. One of the best reads of the last year.
I was not disappointed by one of my favorite authors. He tells a story for an audience that most needs to hear it.
