A beautiful story,
This review is from: The Kite Runner (Paperback)
Beautiful, heartfelt, heart wrenching, enlightening: these words only begin to describe the impact of "Kite Runner." Reading this book you learn a lot about the recent history of Afghanistan. You learn what her people are like, and you learn what fate befell them. All of this is communicated through the eyes of a very "real" young man (by which I mean he's very human with his hopes, lies, dreams, mistakes, and secret emotions). This is a book about a true friendship, and about cultural understandings and misunderstandings. This is a book for all parents, children, friends, and lovers. Note: I wouldn't give this to read to anyone under the age of fifteen or sixteen given some scenes with severe violence. I knew I'd love this book from the minute I read the first paragraph. If I could give this book seven stars, I would.
