    I found this book truly captivating, riveting and timely It offers the reader a view into the culture and traditions of the Afghan people not seen on the nightly news It touches on the ever widening gap between the old traditions and the new generations lack of respect for honor and loyalty It delves into one man s struggle to maintain his integrity and his fight for survival Heart wrenching, realistic, and definitely thought provoking Highly recommend.
