From the moment I started reading Afghanistan Stories, I was immediately captivated. Over the years I have read and watched tv reports about Afghanistan; however, it was not until I read this book did I truly get a better understanding and appreciation of its people, customs and history. I also found it fascinating that the author lived the Afghan life and traveled to many of the remote areas of the country. I never knew places like this existed on earth, and it was fascinating to relive the author’s experiences as he told his story. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has any sense of adventure and especially for those who appreciate history.
