The Kite Runner

Atlast i've finished this book , been reading this one for a long time.
Back to business, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is a great book. Initially people(i meant.. myself ) would feel a bit dry. The flow of the book is fabulous. The buildup to the second part is amazing. Khaled hosseini is an Afghan, but in America on a political asylum.

The characterization of each character is really gr8. No man is perfect, thats the base.The protagonist carries his guilt for all the wrong doings. The characters of Amir , Hassan,baba,Sohrab stand out. The right dosage of the sufferings in Afghan by the taliban , these could visualized. If you think of the story as real one, you can do only one thing... Just feel sorry for the sufferings of the Afghans. There are a lot of moral values attached to the doings of the character especially hassan.

overall, a commendable effort from the author. There's a movie adaptation of the book is on the cards(i'm not sure if it has released).For all those movie buffs who don't find time to read a book, have a look at the movie whenever it releases. :)

Rating : 4/5
