“A sensational novel I would read a thousand times over!”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Since I’ve been running reading addicts I’ve had a lot of what we call here ‘India-Lit’ recommended to me. Khaled Hosseini, Moshin Hamid, Umera Ahmad are just a handful of the authors I’ve had recommended, so with that in mind I went shopping and stocked up a little, adding a few recommended titles to my to be read pile. Given how highly recommended it comes on our Facebook page I started with The Kite Runner and I wasn’t disappointed.
Within a chapter of the Kite Runner I had fallen into the story, Hosseini’s writing is beautifully descriptive and he captures human emotion perfectly. Amir’s description of his childhood is beautiful and haunting and his experiences are enough to bring a grown man to his knees.
