And The Mountains Echoed-What I've Been Reading Wednesdays

Since I loved The Kite Runner and loved A Thousand Splendid Suns even more, I had high hopes for this one.  Maybe my expectations were just too high, I liked it, but just didn't love it.

Like the rest of his books, it is set in Afghanistan and tells the story of people struggling with the harsh realities of that war torn country and there are no "happily ever afters". 

My biggest complaint about the book is that there were just too many characters and you don't get the full story on any of them.  It is as if he had lots of ideas for books and then tried to put them all together into one book, instead of developing each one independently.
