I have been wanting to see this movie for forever! I read the book and loved it, so hopefully I will love watching the DVD, too. My brother saw it (at Madonna's private screening, might I add) and said that he liked it and that it was really intense and really honest. I told him, "I know, duh, I read the book." And he says, "No. Carly. They stone a woman to death. It is heartbreaking."
I learned so much about the culture and the people in Afganistan by reading this and Khaled Hosseini's second book, A Thousand Splendid Suns. I had a hard time putting it down and would read late into the night. I love books like that! It was really humbling for me to realize how blessed I am to be a woman in America.
