- Lorsqu'on tue un homme, on vole une vie. On vole le droit de sa femme à un mari, on prive ses enfants de leur père. Lorsqu'on raconte un mensonge, on dépossède quelqu'un de son droit à la vérité. Lorsqu'on triche, on dérobe le droit d'un autre à l'équité. Tu comprends?"C'est dur à admettre, avait-...
My Journey to Become Pretentiously Literate
DNF at 61% (Chapter 19)I tried to like this book. I really did. In fact, throughout the first quarter of the book, I truly *did* enjoy it. Hosseini's not a bad writer, and his prose flourishes when describing the vibrance and culture of prewar Kabul. He captures childhood nostalgia so perfectly, and...

The Kite Runner is simply the most American foreign novel I've ever read. For those who aren't clear on this, that's not a good thing. We'll come back to this...As a story, The Kite Runner starts a bit slow. I wasn't engaged as a reader until eighty to a hundred pages in. There was just considerable...

Any contemporary story set (even partly) in Afghanistan runs the risk of appearing bleak, at least to western eyes. However, in spite of a sobering glimpse of life under the talaiban, it is Hosseini's examination of a series of overlapping relationships, which reveals the frailty of man and the atte...

The problem with tragedy porn like The Kite Runner is that, at some point, it all becomes a little too much. We get it. Amir had/has a fucked up life wherein nothing goes right. The reader holds out hope that something good must be just around the corner because, surely, life cannot get any worse fo...

I have to say this was just an amazing book! It was heartbreaking and wonderful. I don't think any book has made me use as many tissues as I did. The book begins with two boys, Hassan, and Amir, who are the closest friends ever. Hassan a 'Haraza' is his servant Yet, they are as close as brothers. A...

Very moving story with excellent plot twists. The writing feels a little weak sometimes, but the author's knowledge about and love for Afghanistan shine through. I can see why many people love this book. It's the kind of universal human drama that touches the heart.
