I got to page 100 and stopped I just can t do it This godawful piece of garbage beat me I m actually wondering how I got this far There are so many things wrong with this book that I m not even sure I can list them allA large amount of the sentences have an absence of commas making them either extremly choppy and short or so long that my internal voice even has to take a breath Either way it is exceptionally annoying A great example of this would be in page 7 where it bares the sentence of And only a moment later Baba jan comes whisting down the path that leads from the pens that hold our sheep and goats at the base of the foothills of the Hindu Kush That is one sentenceThere is also the additional issue of how she uses the same word in a very short span of time It seems as if she was lacking a thesaurus as she was writing the bookA third problem I spotted had only occured once in the chapter but it caught my eye nonetheless It is a sentence located on page 12 which has been cut to spare the decent grammar and cut to the chase except for camels and donkeys and horses and people on foot There are three ands there Revist the first grade if you must How did this get past her editor Jeffrey Ward WHY Hey at least she used a commaAlso I just really don t like that the two separate stories are told in first and third person I have not gotten used to it yet and it s really aggravating If it s to easily depict who s perspective that part of the book is being told from it s not working You might be able to tell the difference from the names at the beginning of every chapter but what do I knowOn page 45 she used three uestion marks in a row For a book that is not proper At allIf that s even a word on page 46 hey they re right after each other Staples or rather Nusrat described the character Fatima as having bright dark eyes There s supposed to be some sort of poetic like description in there but that s just awfulOverall Uncle laughs too much In the span of three pages Staples said some variant of Uncle laughed five times That might just be a personal thing but it bothered meOn page 62 within the span of a paragraph a day and a half passed by It was irritating to me at leastOn page 63 Najmah said the gazelle will turn into a fish referring the stars above her at the time and throughout her life twice in the span of a paragraphIn all of chapter 5 it was predictable at least to me that someone was going to die or get injured Or at the very least something bad was ought to happen Everything was too perfect the night before the bombing and Najmah had been gone for too longThere oh my Lord that took foreverHOW AM I SUPPOSED TO READ THIS
