The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

The Kite Runner made me very sad and then left me very hopeful.

We follow Amir through his life story. From his youth in Afghanistan to his new home in America. We experience his inner turmoil as he deals with his past and tries to come to terms with what kind of man he thinks he is, and tries to make amends by being someone, he never thought he would be.

This book was so sad! It was mostly miserable event piled on to miserable event. An emotional roller coaster with a plot twist that almost sends you off the tracks. This book has left me shocked, in tears and at very few, precious moments, smiling.

The Kite Runner is smart, heart wrenching, haunting and every once in a while extremely precious in its own way. My words cannot do this books justice. It’s just so good! So I will keep this short and just highly recommend it to everyone interested.
