Story about a Frenchman who escaped from the Taliban

I found this to be very interesting as well as a reminder of how vulnerable one can be in countries with a turbulent political environment.

I don't know how I could have coped being cooped up in a hole for months on end. I need an endless supply of books.

What would you find it most difficult to do without?
