For the fans of McCarthy's The Road, this is the book they should be reading and which should have won the accolades. It's gritty, real and important - and no baby eating Zombies! Written in the Persian language variant of Afghanistan known as Darsi in 2000 (pre-911), it was translated into English in 2002. It's a simple short novella about a tragic event, the kind that happens every day in Afghanistan. Through the eyes of an old man and his young grandson we experience the trauma of war and the angst of modernity pulling the past into the present. The ancient code of honor which holds society together is falling apart and what is left to replace it is deaf to us, an unknown. Although written before 9-11 about the Soviet invasion, it could just as easily be about present day events. Because it is written by a native Afghani in the native language, his sympathy for his culture, the small details and mannerisms, are all enlightening and curious. Afghanistan is such a mystery, a land of contradictions, this short novella goes a long way in revealing some deeper truths.

WOW. This book pulled me into another world. I felt like I was drowning in quicksand and had to "wake up" to the real world when I was done. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it just ended, you never find out what happens but the writing is AMAZING.

Atiq Rahimi has written some great books, and this one is no exception. I felt satisfied as always and appreciated the journey he took me on, as always.

It is mind provoking but a little disappointing at the end. Rahimi's books all are different and intriguing. I will read his other books.

The book was beautifully covered and in perfect condition.
The story was mystical and unlike anything else I have read about Afghanistan.

This short book was boring, plain and simple. I finished reading this book because I thought it had to get better, it didn't.
Have not had a chance to read the book yet..but it arrived in great condition and early!
