Hi Dawn:Glad to be your Shefari Book Friend...You have a nice selection of books...looks like I'll be reading a few of them..what book are u reading now?Friend,Charline
Yes, I read The Kite Runner 2 years ago. certainly on my best book list. I was so enthralled with this book I called my sis to tell her to read it and guess what--she was about on the same chapter. This guy can really tell a story and what a story. I just finished his second book--A Thousand S;endid Suns. WOW--another winner. Such prose and incredible characters. Both books give you a great sense of what lifs is like in Afganistan. First has male characters, Second female. Bad life for both, but especially women as we all know by now. I cried through one entire chapter. A gifted writer, this Khaled Hossiani!!! You will love both books. Saw the movie, The Kite Runner this weekend. Sadly didn't make Oscar nominations but definately should have. And stayed true to the book. I could gush forever about both these books. Between the two (2 years) I was disappointed in every other book I read. So happy to know you are a reader too. I LOVE readers, especially artistic readers :-))) Cheri
I read The Kite Runner for a college book club. Fantastic!! I also think you should read A Thousand Splendid Suns if you liked the kite Runner. It's by the same author.
