About "And The Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini

This contains spoilers.

Read ''A Thousand Splendid Suns'' by the same author, but I don't really recommend ''And The Mountains Echoed''. I'm still reading and especially that Roshi girl made me feel so bad. By bad, I mean physically sick. And I really want to kill Timur who happens to share his name with my cousin. I mean... the girl's brain is leaking out. Let me quote:

''The crack in the crown of her shaved head, the fist-sized mass of glistening brain tissue leaking from it, sitting on her head like the knot of a sikh's turban.''

That should be enough warning.

I closed ''A Thousand Splendid Suns'' with a smile on my face but it's really different. There are parts that made me smile, like the thing with Nabi and Suleyman, they could be better off though. I don't know if Nabi felt the same, but I really wish Suleyman could be brave, didn't become one of those poor gay men who married women to fit in and confessed to Nabi. I don't think Nabi shares his feelings but it's all up to Hosseini, he could make him. Even if he never loved him, I wouldn't want it to end like that. Suleiman deserved to be happy. In my world, Nabi would feel the same, they would be together and don't end up exploded or hung by Taliban. I think they could move to the States like, as refugees. They would be so old when the gay marriage was legal but at least they could live together and come out without getting murdered. I would really want the best for them. I believe that woman Nila had problems, like mental ones.
