    You know, I read that with my book club last year, and I can’t remember anything about it. Except that I thought it felt like an unsuccessful straddle of fiction and non-fiction.

    Wow~ I’m really surprised by Maggie’s comment! I read that book a while back and it still haunts me. Thinking of those girls. It just kills me inside. I finished it right before my hubby went back to Iraq for another tour. I told him he could bring us back a dozen muslim girls to adopt pleaze. I genuinely wanted to rush to Afghanistan and just kidnap some girls. So much potential but just sadness in the end. And this man is considered progressive? I can’t imagine how there is much hope for Afghani women…
