Lorsqu'on triche, on dérobe le droit d'un autre à l'équité. Tu comprends?"C'est dur à admettre, avait-...
My Journey to Become Pretentiously Literate
DNF at 61% (Chapter 19)I tried to like this book. I really did. In fact, throughout the first quarter of the book, I truly *did* enjoy it.

This is Hosseini's third novel, his weakest so far. The story begins with the separation of the siblings Abdullah and Pari when Pari is sold to a childless rich couple in Kabul. What follows is a collection of short stories of people who are sometimes closely, sometimes loosely connected to that e...
