In the book, he portrays Afghanistan as a dangerous place, yet an area filled with special memories. Hosseini comes from an affluent family, hence he put in some of his own experiences and outlook of being ‘rich’ into the book.

To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life.

The book did an amazing job at character reveal as well as character development. With some books, it takes a reader a while to become enticed by the characters or by the plot. With Wild Seed, it did not take long for many reasons. The first reason is because the book was well written which allowed for myself to follow along without zoning out.
