If I had a list of the most distressing books I ve ever read most likely this one would be near the top of the list Like most people who read this short and horrifying book set in Afghanistan during the Taliban regime I was appalled as I read about the brutality and misery that had become commonplace for everyone most especially for women So why read a book like this ask readers who only read for pleasure and uickly abandon any book that might leave them feeling depressed My answer is that for me books are a way to educate myself about the way life is being lived in a wide variety of contexts Unfortunately many of those contexts are pretty depressing Why read about them Because I think it s important for the rest of us to realize how priviliged and pampered we have become living here in our safe and secure little corner of the world where we are free to live the way we choose If nothing else we need to be reminded that for untold numbers of people life is a pretty dismal business This book definitely gets that point across
