No book has affected me this much in a long time. Amazing book. Couldn’t put the book down until I finished it. Feels like I lived through it. Though I am not from Afghanistan, still could identify with the storyline at so many levels!

What else can I say? An amazing book!

 Can’t wait for Boo to come back from her vacation so that I can discuss it with her!

  2. So you finished huh? See I told you its awesome! Here I am rushing Hd to finish fast so that I can discuss with him and was cribbing last night that no one I know has read it so that I can discuss it before the “high” I got from the book wore off!

    Bhavani – Thanks! 🙂

    Yes it is a touching story. And yes, boo has a way with her writing!
    Husband and I started reading the book the at the same time, he is still at page 30. I was cribbing him as well as to how I have no one to discuss.

  4. Just finished reading the book as my wife had to return the book in the library! Amazingly written book. Very sad story. Left a very sad taste at the end! It felt almost as if the story was a real story. The narration and the flow of the story was unparalleled. One of the best stories (though tragic) that I have ever read! Thanks to yaada yaada for forcing me to read the book!

  6. “The Kite Runner” an awesome book, great attention to details. Every single page made me cry, laugh, warmed up my heart with love, and made me angry… I cried non-stop throughout the book.
