Khan's story as a harassed and imprisoned bookseller in Afghanistan's capital is both harrowing and compelling. The story of his wives and their relationship to each other and their husband is just as compelling, often mirroring the relationship of the country to its citizens.

The most depressing book about the area that I have read. Most of the characters have little to no redeeming qualities or likeablity. The bookseller was the least likeable of all. The ones that were likeable and you wanted to root for you realize have no chance for happiness or an existance other than servitude and repression.
The book didn't flow very well either. At times I wasn't sure if I was reading a book or a collection of magazine articles. The author represents the people and events as actual but I was reminded through this that most of the stories had to be told to her second or third hand. When she goes into the head of the characters and explores their thoughts and feelings you know that she must be taking liberties. You know that such things would never be discussed to such detail and depth as she describes with a foreigner, a writer, and a woman of all things.

This books gives insight to an area of the world that many of us could not see otherwise. For me, it was a dark read, but not without hope. The author wrote with a dispassionate voice, as a reporter must, but now and then her dismay at some of the events she witnessed came through.
