Ironic double standards by the writer all over the book.

Not the worst novel, yet the western likes because it started with the love of Israel by the author, and the worshipping to the American invasion against Afghanistan. Thats pure conflict in the book, as he shit on Russia for invading Afghanistan, but he braises Israel occupation over Palestine and doing much worse than what Russians did in Afghanistan.

Of course the worst thing could happen to any country is to be controlled by religious lunatics but that is no less ugly than an invasion by outsiders who made equal or even more damage.

The author’s other novel titled: A thousand splended sun; is really amazing and it got into my favourite list. But this one is really bad and the main goal feels like he wanted to please the americans. I mean come on, he spit fire on Moslems and communists. Thats all what you need to be a star in the west.
