A Thousand Splendid Suns, #17 2020

I read the Kite Runner a few years ago, and remember it as being well-written, but with a grim story.
This is no different. I felt the tragedy was piled on, especially in opening section, to the point where I thought I might stop reading it. I went through to the end, but found it a slog, and found myself looking at the page numbers wondering how much farther did I have to go.
The story is based in an Afghanistan that was a real, brutal home for many throughout the time of the story. I think for me I would need to read about this in non-fiction, rather than a fictionalised account.
