Review: Its after a long time that I read a book which I wished didn’t end. This book has that impact on you. Its beautiful in its writing, its storytelling, its vivid descriptions and its heart-wrenching realistic touch. The characters are absolutely amazing.
Amir’s character was the one which I could not decide till the end wether I like him or not. He is a strong character who made equally strong decisions. But he definitely left a mark.
Hassan’s character was an automatic favourite. You cannot hate him. He is a beautifully written character. His simplicity and loyalty to not only to Amir but himself is admirable. It makes you want to know more about him.
The other characters,that is, Baba’s, Ali, Rahim Khan, Farid all played their parts extremely well. Every character will make you fall even more in love with this book.
This book makes you think. About everything. It makes you evaluate not only the scenario but also yourself. About the impacts war has on every person- rich or poor. This book is just-wow. If you haven’t already read it, I recommend you read it because you do not want to be deprived of this beauty.

Until Next Time, HAPPY READING FOLKS!💕😊
