The Kite Runner

February 09 ,2008

I’ve just finished reading one of the most moving books I’ve ever read in my life. Its called ‘The Kite Runner”, by Khaled Hosseini. It’s the tragic story of a boy growing up in Afghanistan who later moves to the US. I said it is tragic and it is because of the immense pain and suffering the people in Afghanistan have suffered for 30 years, but it is also a story of tremendous hope and courage.

Read this book! I think it is a very important piece of literature of our times and it also is important to understand a culture that through war is so closely tied to our own.
