Okay, I'm back...  I hope you didn't think I forgot about this, Mahi! So here are my views...
 
- I completely and utterly wanted to KILL (sorry for the caps) Rasheed... LOL
 
- Mariam's character was just so touching and tragic at the same time... she never really got to experience true happiness in her entire life. As for Laila, it must have been worse for her because she had happiness before... but then to have it all snatched away from you must be even more difficult...
 
- Tariq's character was extremely interesting... I wish that there would have been a part in the book from his point of view... it would have made the book even better! As for Aziza... I felt so sorry for the poor child throughout the book... the orphanage scenes were so sad!
 
- I'm sorry that I'm not writing much more... but I just finished reading The Kite Runner today and I'm thinking about that right now!
