Reason Book was Chosen:This book was chosen by The Original Manchester Book Group for discussion at our December 2019 meeting from the genre "Travel Writing".
A fascinating read, I must admit that I didn’t know much about Afghanistan, I knew about the deployment of Allied troops post September 11 but I didn’t know anything about the country itself.
This was a great insight into the culture and history of the people that live there and their differences.
I also really enjoyed getting to know Rory Stewart a bit better. He was recently a candidate to take over as Leader of the Conservative Party and the UK Prime Minister, he of all the candidates was the one that suited the role the best but unfortunately lost out to Boris Johnson. He has since stepped down from his role as MP (member of parliament).
