I think although some people are plain victims of brutal acts, they still think it's a part of their faults or they deserve it or something. This mentality is sad, but what can we do? They're raised to accept their fate. That's why I almost cried when Amir said Haasan had a look of a lamb at that time. And this is what Assef wanted him to feel.

I'm sure you'll like A Thousand Splendid Suns, although I think I prefer The Kite Runner so far!

:shock: Really? So far I'm liking a thousand splendid suns better. Yeah, I know the story is kinda slow, but I think it's more interesting than kite runner. I've always felt outraged when I hear a girl is married into a marriage she didn't choose. To me, it's like slavery. Why can't people realize making someone do something out of their wills is a sin? If it's not, it should be. :x

Thanks for the link, Len!


You're welcome. Did you check out the ipod cast or something? It has clips of his stories (just several minutes, you know). His voice is hot, right? :twisted:
