    Recommend, an enjoyable and captivating read

    Enjoyed the book so very much and would recommend it. So nice to read about that part of the world from a native son who lived through many tough times but experienced so much with many different countrymen and had many enjoyable experiences as well.

    Living in war and terror

    It is an important story. Follow a young boy and his family's journey through Taliban Afghanistan. Most civilized people have an inkling of the horrors that went on but now we are told firsthand. The story is in large about survival, living in fear snd terror. There is explict horror. We find some relief in encounters with various people, tribes and their customs. Living inside the large Buddhas that were later destroyed proves interesting. Parts of the story doesn't quite settle. Given these facts it is a bit puzzeling why one would want to stay in Afghanistan? The story serves as a reminder of what could be.
