#36: The Kite Runner


I loved The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. When I started reading it yesterday I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to really get into it or not. I can't say that I was all too intrigued but I heard it was a good book. Not only was it a good book, it was excellent. I could not put the book down. Hosseini tells the story of a young boy's coming of age in Afghanistan. The story starts out at the end of Afghanistan's monarchy and ends in present times. He addresses the topics of family, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness, pain, fear, and violence in Afghanistan in this beautifully written story. This book is definitely one of the top 5 books I've read this year.

Comments:
i have heard this is excellent, and have been meaning to read this. so i think i'll try. something funny happened today, and it made me want to call you, but then i forgot.
 
Read the lawn book...
 
the lawn book is really boring. i read about 1 sentence and then i give up. so i haven't even finished the first page.
 
i read this book last year and really loved it...but it took me a while to get into it as well.

i'm not sure how culturally relevent it is, but i thought it was pretty cool to read about life over there.
