I just finished A Thousand Splendid Suns and I told DH that I hated it! He tried to get me to stop reading it but there was no way. LOL
Anyhow, if you've read it or read anything like this, my question is - how far do you think fiction writers might keep to the truth. Do you think a fiction book can give you a good feel for what was really going on in Afganistan? Do you think that even though they hated the idea of the USA coming in and bombing their country, they really felt that it might turn out to be a good thing? It was very interesting to read this take on it but do you think a fair amount of the descriptions from the Afghanistan perception might be true?
On average, how far do you think authors take liberties with the truth in a fiction book?
