The first, Mariam, is the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy businessman in Herat. Maybe it doesn’t matter to you, but I feel that if one really cares about his book, at least he should have the decency to make an effort to choose an aplendida image that relates to the story and not any stereotypic one, an image that will just do.

The writing is beautiful, the vivid descriptions transport me, however, it dragged me along. Peste ani, Abdullah isi aduce aminte de acea zi fatidica si vorbele tatalui sau suna precum un ecou: I seriously cannot fault it.

There were glaring errors in grammar and jarring transistions in the plot-line. Why do we turn our backs on the horror of lives such as the characters in this book?
