Although the setting and events of this book are intriguing, the characters and how they behave are real Oprah's Book Club, with capital 'M' morals laid out for the reader at every turn.

While this isn’t a particularly well written book, this fictional story of five women who are associated with a Kabul coffee shop becomes a valuable vehicle for showing us the harsh, violent and oppressive reality of life in Afghanistan. The plight of women is particularly grim, far worse than I realised. It was these insights, rather than any literary merit, that made the book a worthwhile read for me.
