Mariam, Laila and Afghanistan

April 16, 2008

Finally i managed to finish this Stunning, lively, Moving, heartbreaking and motivating tale of Mariam, Laila and Afghanistan. Story is so brilliantly told, I felt as if every moment is happening live in front of me.

As Independent puts it, “Guaranteed to move even the hardest heart’

Opening Sentence ….. Closing sentence

Mariam was five years old the first time she heard the word harami …….But the game involves only male names. Because, if it’s a girl, Laila has already named her.

    Hosseini is a brilliant wordsmith! His technique is simple and the result is heart-warming.I actuallly sat staring into oblivion for some time after finishing d book.This kind of a feeling happens not just when you read a story but when you actually live a story! Kudos to him
