my thought on the kite runner

The novel kite runner was very enjoyable book being that there was enough action and twists to keep the reader hooked but alongside that the novel had well developed characters and a good story behind it that made you feel something while reading it. One thing I would have liked for them to explain was the ending. Or what happened years later. I would recommend this book but it is a little bit graphic but I would still recommend it to a mature audience.

Interesting in certain ways.

The Kite Runner is an interesting book. It's heartwarming yet controversial. It's a good read. I wouldn't recommend this book for children as the book does take a twist on a darker path. The author, Khaled Hosseini has an interesting writing style that would keep you enticed all throughout the novel. It's a great book.

Sad book

This book was emotional and sad. It was a good book but not my cup of tea. There are many lies and deaths in the book and if your looking for a happy book this is not the book for you. This book can make you see just how good you may have it in your life and country because of the social bias that is shown toward the Hazaras and the way people have to live in the book with the Taliban.

Interesting book

This book was VERY VERY in interesting. It was a sad book and a weird book. The book is ironic in many ways, when talking about lying and if you are looking for a happy book, don't read this because it is inappropriate and very sad. This book well make you grateful that you are in America and not in any other country without any freedoms.
