Though it should have appealed stronger to me (in terms of femininity and feminism - why not?), I had a better / deeper relationship with [b:The Kite Runner|77203|The Kite Runner|Khaled Hosseini|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51m925LY6uL._SL75_.jpg|3295919] (in terms of friendship / boyhood / hardship / adaptation etc.)
Interesting characters, nice writing (Hosseini is a real story teller), hard to digest reality. It just strikes me, how ignorant we can be? And even so, ignorance assumed, what can anybody from the "outside world" do?
I just feel so blessed.
