It's a good read, but I also liked it for the history and insight on Afghan culture.
I missed this when posted. I agree about the Afghan culture aspect of it. The class structure trumps all other flesh and blood ties.
I wouldn't think women would have a problem with this book. My wife liked it. There were few women in the book and they mostly play a secondary role.
Reading Lolita in Tehran would be a good companion book for this book.
