    "Hosseini writes a tale of poignant reality. This story based in Afghanistan, a country we know little about but that dominates a lot of political focus, even today. It would do us good to look at this wonderful book. It is by the same author of the wonderful book The Kite Runner. "

    "This series is a well written book of a series by Jim Fergus. I borrowed a xopy from my coworker and enjoyed it so much I bought it and read it again. Jim Fergus has outdone himself in this alternate version of history. Its the best of his One Thousand White Women series. "

    "The 5th Horseman (Women's Murder Club Series) is a great book that has a number in the title. If you are interested in types of thriller or horror books, this is definitely the book for you. You should maybe consider reading the first book in the series and onwards however if you would like to get a better feel for the style. "

    "This was a great book that is the sequel to another great book! It's intended for middle school kids, and is written from the perspective of a middle grade boy. It's a very suspenseful mystery that keeps the pages turning while you read. I actually read it all in one single sitting, and I hope that there will be more additions to this series because I'll definitely read them."
