A few mistakes but a great book

I've never been a book reader or a person that writes reviews on books but this one is special. I was suggested by a friend to read this book and oh boy I am grateful for the suggestion. I am an Afghan and grew up in Afghanistan. I knew most of the settings used in this book which made really nostalgic in a way. One the things that noticed about the book that sort of bothered me was the fact that Amir and Baba were both pashtuns but in the book they are always conversing in Farsi other than I loved the book.

Awesome!

Great book! A bit predictable at certain points, but very well written. One of my top 10!
