Considering what I read via others sources about the ongoings of day-to-day life in Afghanistan and what people there have to deal with, I think there is remarkably little violence and brutality in the book. The reality is by far more brutal and violent, and yet the people have to live it. I think whatever unpleasant things happen and are described in the book are necessary to give the reader a feel of that.
