Very moving. War and terrorism and the turmoil the civilians face are very well portrayed.

This is an extremely fine novel which allows the reader an insight into Afganhistan and the impossible conditions in which the local people find themselves as a result of war and oppression. The novel traces a father and son and their close servant and his son. A childhood injustice has repercussions stretching over years and across continents.
