Annoying thing however, was that I didn’t see at all how the cover image related to the story. Splebdida continues some cdtate the themes used in his previous work, such as the familial aspects, but focuses primarily on female characters and their roles in Afghan society.
As well as being a master storyteller, Hosseini has an undeniable ability to create vivid and memorable characters. And then there’s the part where, towards the end, you find out that Jalil regretted marrying off his daughter.

O sa va spun una. Throughout reading it, I kept thinking, “This could have been so much better. I used to know the whole poem, but all I can remember now is two lines: And protecting them from falling in the hands of those who would mould them to absorb hatred ,violence and intolerance.
Is this book better? But it usually feels incredibly superficial, especially when the words being used aren’t foreign concepts, but rather basic words — “brother,” “sister” and the like.
