Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son was given the first book in grade 5 to read for school. He asked me for the next two books and we were lucky to find the trilogy. He's read it over and over. He thought I'd like it, so I picked it up over vacation. It's a tremendously well written set of books. It is so easy to fall into war torn Afganistan. The characters come to life and become a part of you. I recently got the fourth book and once he's done with it, it will be mine!!!!
