  1. I remember reading the kite runner in my senior year as a project. The book left me with mixed feelings and emotions, especially for the main character. What do you feel about the book?


    • Thank your for your comment. The Kite Runner is one of my favorite books for two reasons:
      1) Khaled Hosseini’s writing is so descriptive, it brings the scenes to life. The text says it all: emotion, sound, color, shape and even smell.
      2) Characters. The characters are really realistic. And you can see them develop and grow smoothly as your read.
      so yeah, I really like the book.

      I’m sorry if that was too long!


      • No it was not long at all! Actually i agree with you completley! Like i said, the book left me with mixed emotions and at times had me wondering who was truly pure and who was evil in their intentions. Im excited to read his other book.


      • I totally recommend A Thousand Splendid Suns. I read it so many times, but it never gets old. Such a beautiful story.
        As for The Mountains Echoed..I don’t know. I couldn’t get into the story. I am interested in what you would think about it, actually.
