    • In 2012, when I was Mathematics teacher at a private high school in Iran, I had an Afghan student in my class Sometimes, I discussed with my students about literature, and I told them of novels and poem I found it very strange that my students had no interest in literature and even sometimes looked with hostility to this discussion Days passed and much time was left to the end of school year One day I saw Ali, Afghan student, came to me and had a booklet in his hand and I saw in his eyes several [...]


    • For you, a thousand times over Children aren t coloring books You don t get to fill them with your favorite colors tention shifted to him like sunflowers turning to the sun But even when he wasn t around, he was When you kill a man, you steal a life You steal a wife s right to a husband, rob his children of a father When you tell a lie, you steal someone s right to the truth When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness There is no act wretched than stealing e had a voice that made me think o [...]


    • I became what I am today at the age of twenty nine, on a frigid overcast day in the winter of 2008 What I am about to tell you about what I became is going to be very shocking It is going to manipulate your emotions It may include some random words in my native language for no reason whatsoever It will teach you unnecessary things about my culture It will not be smarter than a fifth grader And it will include as many cliches and as much foreshadowing as is humanly possible You are going to be sh [...]


    • This is the sort of book White America reads to feel worldly Just like the spate of Native American pop fiction in the late eighties, this is overwhelmingly colonized literature, in that it pretends to reveal some aspect of the other culture, but on closer inspection aside from the occasional tidbit it is a thoroughly western story, firmly ensconced in the western tradition Even those tidbits Hosseini gives are of such a vague degree that to be impressed by them, one would have to have almost no [...]


    • Finished this book about a month ago but it s taken me this long to write a review about it because I have such mixed feelings about it It was a deeply affecting novel, but mostly not in a good way I really wanted to like it, but the I think about what I didn t like about the book, the it bothers me I even downgraded this review from two stars to one from the time I started writing it to the time I finished.Let s start off with the good, shall we The writing itself was pretty good when it come [...]



    • Check out of my reviews at bookaddicthaven The Kite Runner had been sitting on my TBR list for years I kept putting it off because while I was sure that it would be a fantastic book, it isn t the type of smutty romance that I usually read I knew that I d have to be in the right kind of mood to read it Finally, I found myself wanting to read something a little different to break me out of a reading rut and I downloaded the Audible version of The Kite Runner and started listening.As expected, thi [...]


    • The kite runner, 2003, Khaled HosseiniThe Kite Runner is the first novel by Afghan American author Khaled Hosseini Published in 2003 by Riverhead Books, it tells the story of Amir, a young boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, whose closest friend is Hassan The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of Afghanistan s monarchy through the Soviet military intervention, the exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the rise of the Taliban regim [...]


    • I m really mad at myself for taking so long to read this SUCH a good book, and while it may not be worthy of 5 stars for me, I really did love it and it broke my heart a hundred times I look forward to reading Hosseini s other books, most likely this year.


    • i really wanted to like this novel judging from its thousands of five star reviews hailing it as the one of the best books ever written, i m in the minority when i state that this novel, while well intentioned, just left a little bit of sour taste in my mouth my problems with the novel are as follows first of all the writing itself is so ham fistened, heavy handed, distracting and otherwise puzzling that by the midway point, i seriously considered chucking the book against the wall each page of [...]


    • I liked this book a lot Due to the uncomfortable nature of the story told, I ll probably never read it again, but I m glad that I did read it once I saw it as the story of one not very likeable boy growing up in a soon to be war torn region and his eventual struggle for redemption I was quite surprised to see how popular some of the negative reviews of this book were and I d like to comment on a few of the comments they contained One condemnatory critic said This is the sort of book White Americ [...]



    • I found this book a failure of courage and imagination all the upsetting for the author s astute sense of detail and wonderful psychological depth But ask yourself this if the Taliban are real humans than why are they not represented as such No doubt we will all love the movie as well.If you want to read a book on Afghanistan, I recommend Jason Elliot s An Unexpected Light.Below is my complete review I started out loving this book Hosseini is dead on target in his depiction of children s psycho [...]


    • After pondering long and hard, I m going to try now to articulate just what it was about this book that sucked so much, why it has offended me so greatly, and why its popularity has enraged me even This book blew so much that I ve been inspired to start my own website of book reviews for non morons So let us explore why First, let s deal with the writer himself Hosseini s father worked for Western companies while in Afghasnistan While daddy who I am guessing, from Hosseini s tragic account of t [...]


    • Before I started this book, I distinctively remember running my hands over the cover, over the embossed letters that read, The Kite Runner, with not a thought spared but just a sense of hope and anticipation.Now, after I ve finished it, I m once again running my hands over them.Those letters that read, The Kite Runner Those letters that mean a lot than what they seemed to a few days ago.Yes.Oh No.Yes.Oh.Oh.This is just a tiny fraction of Oh s that I felt during my journey through this beauty an [...]



    • Amir, a little boy growing up in the early 1970 s in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, has the idyllic life, a wealthy father Baba, a widower, the mother died giving birth to Amir, he believes, the father hates him for that, in the most beautiful house some say in the city, a great friend Hassan, the son of Ali, a servant and loyal to the family Baba and Ali had been friends too in childhood, strange since Hassan s father is just a Hazara Mongol , Hassan s promiscuous mother, had left them to j [...]


    • This is a wonderful, moving novel set in the Afghanistan of the early 70 s and of today, about a young boy and his friend growing up in Kabul Amir desperately wants his father s approval, but Baba is not quick to give it He is a rich man, brimming with macho vibrancy, while his son is a different sort altogether Amir is fast friends with Hassan, the son of his father s servant They are as close as brothers But, beset by bullies, an event occurs that changes Amir s life There is much death and ho [...]



    • So I started Kite Runner two nights ago after finishing Blink It took me a week or so with Blink since I wasn t very enthralled, making it easier to put it down at night when it was my bed time.Kite Runner, I started over a long weekend and could not for the life of me put it down I was so hooked I even found myself reading Bing s copy when I was over at Deesh and Bing s this weekend playing an invigorating and might I add victorious game of girls vs boys Cranium and then Cheez Geek Cheez Geek o [...]


    • This is one strain of the virus we call Middlebrow Literature Issuetastic fiction that turns up to date, politically loaded topical material into powerful works of stating the obvious whose aim is to educate the Uninformed or Casually Interested Westerner in the ways of another culture at a time when that culture or nation is under scrutiny, or has the western gaze upon it and needs to answer for itself in an accessible and heart tugging manner Now and then we will accept literature from far off [...]


    • I read this novel five years ago and I confess, at that time, It was my best read for some time.I enjoyed this book.Amir the narrator of novel has narrated it beautifully.The sense of insecurity in the father son relation has been woven nicely and the sense of redemption and guilt is main theme in the psyche of narrator.I found entire story heart wrenching and the scenes and plot around the friendship of two boys from two different and opposite strata of the society were perfectly written and co [...]



    • When you kill a man, you steal a life You steal his wife s right to a husband, rob his children of a father When you tell a lie, you steal someone s right to the truth When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness There is no act wretched than stealing I m going to be honest with you To read this book was a constant struggle, not because I didn t like the writing style, not because it was bad and not because it was boring No, if anything The Kite Runner was so hard to read because it was so e [...]


    • I must admit that although I had heard plenty of people mention The Kite Runner, I hadn t actually paid much attention to what was said about it other than, It was wonderful So, a few days ago and several years after the book came out, I heard a couple of people discussing the wonderful book I decided to read it.The first day, I read about a third of the novel Hassan is raped, Amir feels bad, well sort of, he feels bad that Hassan is raped yes, but even worse because Hassan s rape makes him feel [...]


    • I AM SO EMOTIONAL DON T TOUCH ME.This story was beautiful and I learned so much from it and man Just so good.I also read this for diversathon even though I m finishing it about a week later and I really feel like I learned so much about a culture that I really knew nothing about It was eye opening and interesting and so educational The characters were beautifully written and Amir was fantastically developed Overall the plot was engaging though the pacing lacked at times The message was beautiful [...]



    • I loved this book Annoyed with myself for not reading it sooner esp after I read loved A Thousand Splendid Suns.Totally heartbreaking Although it was not worthy of 5 stars for me due to the predictability of the story but I still loved this book to bits Such an amazing story journey The film was so bad though.


    • There are a lot of children in Afghanistan, but little childhood I ve read books before with an unreliable narrator and also read accounts of cowardice and shame Amir, the first person protagonist and narrator from Hosseini s 2003 novel, filled me with such disgust and loathing that I almost put the book down at 25%.My doctor would say that Amir suffered from AWDD Ass whooping deficiency disorder and I would enthusiastically second that diagnosis.That said, I invite everyone to read the book and [...]


    • lovely book,specially use of metaphor and hyperbole.Just loved way of writing When you kill a man, you steal a life You steal his wife s right to a husband, rob his children of a father When you tell a lie, you steal someone s right to the truth When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.
