I finished the first book and I really liked it. The Candle on the Stairs was um...hot.
I will take a break before attacking Merc's and I already know I'm going to skip the first half of that. Not a masochist. don't like torture or long separations, or torturous long separations.
I learned alot about the history of Afghanistan, the special forces, etc... After the Russians pulled out, they went into a full on civil war, then the Taliban got some power and things just dissolved into horror. 3.2 million people live in Kabul alone, in mud huts, stuck there. It's really sad.
glad these two found eachother among all that awful.
I still can not figure out why they did not have phones of some kind? Somewhere? There was only one phone call in the whole book and that was in India. hmmmmm....
