A must read about family life in Afghanistan

4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 26-07-11

The author, a Norwegian woman, gets the opportunity of staying with an Afghan family, the Bookseller of Kabul to be precise, and Seierstad shares with us what she sees, learns and experiences about the life of the bookseller, a society, a country and a family structure so very different from ours.

I enjoyed this book very much. Modern family dysfunction at it's most entertaining. Haddon's pen is so sharp.

A jealous God?!?

This lady believes that God is a jealous God and that there are certain items he does not want in our homes. She also speaks very fast. After 9 minutes I had enough and I am not planning to hear her out.

The Hand That First Held Mine cover art

A really good story

This is a great story about an art critic, two children, two generations and the cunnings ways of fate. I am sure the unabridged book would deserve at least 4 stars, perhaps even 5, but in this abridged version some of the cuts made me lose the thread at more than one occasion.

Everything is right

This crime story has a totally gripping plot starring totally amazing characters ? Lisbeth Salander is one of a kind - you must get to know her. The book is extremely well researched and written and the narrator is doing a great job too. I have seen all 3 brilliant movies already, but the book has so much more to offer, believe it or not. I can't recommend this title enough. ENJOY!
