I read this book on a holiday/business trip to the Chicago. It's the tragic story of a brother and sister that get separated at a very young age and the path leading to their reunion.
It's a good book but certainly not as good as A Thousand Splendid Suns.
There is one story line in the book that completely doesn't fit into the main plot - I didn't understand why the relationship between the Greek guy and his semi-adopted sister fit in with the plot of Abdullah. Khaled Hosseini should have just focused on what I thought was the main story.
I also found the ending very dissatisfying. I love reunions but I felt robbed of a reunion because the second party in the reunion couldn't "fully participate" - you'll find out what I mean when you read the book.

Time allowing, I love to read. If I read anything interesting, I will blog about it here.
