I don’t want to say too much, because I really hope that all my readers will read this book. I will describe how I felt throughout, though. I felt several emotions throughout this book…
Appreciative, Thankful, Sadness, Shock, Happiness. Without giving anything away, you do learn the life of Afghani woman as wives. How being a wife there *can* be scary, and horrible, and so unsettling. This book made me cry in parts of it, which is extremely rare thing for a book to make me cry. I didn’t only cry at sad moments, but I also cried at moments where there was such surprising joy that I immediately teared up, and tears were just pouring out of my eyes. Khaled Hasseini knows how to draw in his audience, and leave them wanting to read more. I love writers like that. I love that from start to finish the book was great! It started great, and ended great. With just a little bit of mystery to make you wonder how the character’s lived on, and what happens down the road. I give this book and The Kite Runner a standing ovation!!
If and when you finish reading these books, please tell my what you think! I am interested in hearing what other people think of them. :)
Went to the gym this morning, but other than that not much else is happening. It is SO hot here that all you can do it avoid going outside. “Who wants to get the mail?” Seriously! It’s that hot! Today it is supposed to be 101 degrees. Not only that, but I think 75-80% humidity, which is what makes things miserable here. The air is so thick you can almost eat it! SICK!
Here are a couple pictures for you all!
This is Zoe right after she pushed herself up from crawling to sitting… and all while clutching that baby doll! LOL.
