I had wanted to read this novel since I heard rave reviews for the original edition. The novel is vividly descriptive of a country and culture many don't understand.What makes the story universal is the friendship of two boys. That friendship is tested on many levels. I won't say too much and that is why I recommend reading the novel before watching the movie based on it....

Product good, just too hard for assigned reading for 16 year old boys. Hard to get into, slow, hard for them to relate. My son had a hard time trying to get through a third of this book. I read it and thought it was a good story that the kids should be exposed to, but too hard for average 16 year olds. A simpler version would have been more effective at their age.Read More

but this one's not so bad. It's a good story that lends great insight into a Middle Eastern culture most Americans know nothing about. If nothing else, it helps promote understanding and tolerance. I'm all for that!Read More
