I saw he had dark hair in the trailer but I thought he did have blue eyes :shock: And why is that anyway?

I'm gonna assume that they couldn't find any blond-hair-blued-eyes boy who could act good enough to portrait him. I'm not even gonna bother with the racial issue right now. I hope this is not the main concern. His mother is German in the book, and she has no sympathy for Hitler. Assef is just a psychopath. I wonder if they would show him more or let people who haven't read the book yet know his personality. He's a main key in the relationship and fate of Haasan and Amir.

How much? One question about the Spanish version, do they keep the characters' names in English or they translated them into Spanish?

How much? 5 pounds, I think. There was a 2 pound discount.

Of course the names weren't translated, thank dog.

Hardcover? If yes, it's pretty cheap. If it's paperback, it's about the same price in the States. Is the tax expensive?

Paperback, I guess (I wasn't familiar with that word :oops: , thanks pretty!), since it's not hardcover :lol:
