Masood Farivar provides an enjoyable and digestible first hand account of a complicated region and nation. His upbringing at the crossroads of tribal life and what was then the closest thing in Afghanistan to 'suburbia' life, combined with his journey to becoming a warrior fighting communism in the 1980s would serve well for any literature. Yet, Masood adds the cherry on top; he left Afghanistan for a Harvard education in the 1990s, and then returned to his country a couple years ago. As such, he applies a unique lens that provides a viewing angle for "western" readers. The outcome is a great read!

This was a great read. One can tell how intelligent Mr. Farivar is by his style of writing. It provides the reader a good insight to a young man growing up in the days of Soviet occupation. It may have been a little light on the period of Taliban atrocities, but Mr. Farivar was living in the US for some time between trips back to Pakistan/Afghan. Update: he now is in DC as Director Afghan Services for VOA. I learned a lot more about Afghan culture from this book.
