Not As Heart-Wrenching As "The Kite Runner"

The oldest member of my book club, a very sweet lady in her late 70s, chose this book. I was so traumatized by the author's other book, "The Kite Runner," that I actually swore at her. I said, "Jesus Christ, Simone, what the hell are you trying to do to us?"
It's still pretty depressing, but no where near as bad as Kite Runner, with the child gang rape and such.
