The Bookseller of KabulThe Bookseller of Kabul by Åsne Seierstad
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Audio version. Very well done and captured my interest from the first. Compelling. I coud not put it down. This quote from the book's flyleaf sums up my feelings: "a genuinely gripping and moving portrait of a family, and a clear-eyed assessment of a country struggling to free itself from history."
I was constantly reminded of my privileges and extremely thankful to have been born in 20th century America.
