How much of what you were and were not as a child haunts you when you grow up and sting you time and again is well potrayed by the author.
The author’s in depth potrayal of Afghan, post and pre Taliban and the change catches the reader’s imagination. The unexpected twists and the characterization of Hassan and Amir live with you long after you have laid down the book.
I was in awe of the language and the choice of words and how he avoided cliches like the plague.(smiles). I started reading the book to kill time during my train journey but i was so hooked on to the book that i finished it the same day i came back.
I might probably go and see the movie as well.
Kite Runner, by far the best novels i have read. Thumbs Up!!!
