Book Review for: The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul by Deborah Rodriguez

The little coffee shop of Kabul. It started pretty slowly and I almost stopped reading it, until a few chapters later; things got real.
The story is about a remarkable coffee shop in the heart of Afghanistan, where the men and women who meet there are thrown together by circumstances, bonded by secrets, and united in an extraordinary friendship. After hard luck and some bad choices, Sunny has finally found a place to call home — it just happens to be in the middle of a war zone.
I read and understood things I never imagined happened in this world. I read about a world where being a chauvinist was a proud thing to be. It saddened me deeply to know that people out there still lives in a world so unfair and nasty. This book showed a part of this world which I didn’t hear of on TV. The writing style was a little fast, situations and problems resolved quite quickly. But overall it was good. I would give it a 3 out of 5 stars.
