Yet she cares, speaking to him, revealing her deepest desires, pains, and secrets. She speaks of her life, not knowing if her husband hears, confessing about sex and love and her anger against a man who never understood her, and who mistreated her. Free of oppression, she leads her story up to a great secret that is unthinkable in a country like Afghanistan. Rahimi captures with great courage and spare, poetic, prose the reality of everyday life for an intelligent woman under the oppressive weight of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

Interesting though not fascinating
What did you like best about The Patience Stone? What did you like least?
It is a very interesting book, as far as the way to tell the condition of Muslim women in some countries live in. Horrible! In this sense the book is good and valuable. It is very informative. It uses very unusual form of telling the story. Whereas I do not regret reading it, it is not a book that will catch your attention. It is mostly...sad, and depressing. But it is, as I believe, reflecting the truth... That is why I think it is valuable.
