The Kite Runner

If you’re having trouble picking a book you think you’ll be interested in, I strongly suggest The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. This novel is narrated by the main character, Amir, who talks about his childhood and growing up in Afghanistan. Throughout the story Amir also tells you about the different relationships he has with important people in his life. While reading, you’ll follow him through many different issues and many different emotions. He covers guilt, betrayal, love, compassion, anger, hope, etc. Another important issue talked about is the change in Afghanistan’s conditions and politics, some of which they still deal with even today.  In my opinion, this is a story about acceptance and the power to change. Take it from me-you won’t want to put this book down and you might even stop to take a look at your own life and how you treat others.
