Afghanistan

If you're wondering about the purpose of sending troops into Afghanistan, read Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. I just finished them last month, and they have changed my thinking in a big way.

I haven't read A Thousand Splendid Suns yet, but I LOVED Kite Runner. I still find myself thinking about that story.
Also set in Afganistan is Three Cups of Tea. Fascinating non-fiction tale of a humanitarian worker. Different perspective though:)
