I was unfortunate enough to get a couple of spoilers for the book (friendly advice: if you're in the middle of the book, it is NOT a good idea to check for the trailer of the movie's adaptation, as it contains mild spoilers), so nothing struck me as absolutely unexpected, yet the book still kept me trapped to its fascinating world until the very last page.
One of the best thing about this book is how it talked about the character's life in the US without patronizing the country, always making sure that Amir was a coherent character, with a heart deeply rooted in the values and traditions of his home country. It was also interesting to finally see a story by the point of view of someone most uninformed people consider a "terrorist".
I just can't seem to find words enough to express how this book change the way I saw Afghanistan, its people, its culture. I loved every single page of The Kite Runner and feel like it's going to leave an empty space in my heart...
This book proves those stereotypes wrong and will give any reader a more human perspective of Afghanistan. Instead of having the first thing come to mind being "terrorists" or "crazy religious people " , this book will help remind you that Afghans are people just like us . Not all of them choose to behave as those in the Taliban behave . They are victims of war within their own country .
I am glad I read this book because it pointed out things I already knew except gave me more detailed descriptions of how things are for a "normal" family in Afghanistan.
I won't go into any more detail to spoil the book but I would recommend it for anyone looking for something to give them a more human perspective on what goes on in Afghanistan . It includes universal human themes such as friendship, love , war, betrayal, loyalty , religion , and more.
No wonder it's a top rated book .
