I just finished this one! Awesome writing!
I loved the way that the love/hate relationship between father and son was handled..one side the guy is in awe of his father and on the other end he totally dislikes him!!! Very well written!

I read Kite Runner. Hard to believe that this is Khalid Hossaini's first book. Simply Awesome!!

I would def recommend this one. The protagonist is flawed. It shows flawed characters. Also it showed us the polictical scenario of Afghanistan during Russian invasion and then Taliban reign, its effects on people. One thing I should give credit to him is how khalid showed the prejudice between the Pathan and Hazaara people...how the "Domination" factor occurs.. that its just not about black and white..it occurs in all forms where people want power.

Def a Must Read! Go and grab the book!! Big smile

My favorite book of all time . The Kite Runner is a book well written. I never cried while reading this book but oh I cried so much. It's just touching. I'm going to start reading the second book by this author A Thousand Splendid Suns I heard it is just as good. This is a book that everyone must read.
