Kite Runner

Wow. This book is amazing! Who knew? I admit, I had gotten to the point where I was hoping the story was actually going somewhere. I was thinking, this isn't it, is it? But of course it wasn't. It was like the book knew I was at the point, because all of a sudden it blew up again and I couldn't put it down. The character development is phenomenal. The story line has great depth and twists that pull me in.

I also admit I knew very little about Afghanistan and it's history. This book presents it's modern history quite brilliantly I think. It puts into perspective a lot of things that maybe people in this country didn't know about the Taliban. Very, very interesting.

I should be finished soon.
