The Kite Runner

Posted by Dinky Mind on Monday, October 13, 2008 in ,

Finished reading The Kite Runner today. Aapi gifted me this book on my birthday, and now I got the time to read it. It took me two days to complete it (exclude the time when I open a novel, read a few pages, get bored and slide it back in the shelf). But seriously, I'm one of those who really drag the reading because they want to "enjoy the story for a long time" [perhaps for a few weeks]. I spent my whole Sunday in reading that book, wept couple of times. Yep, Momma says, "is ki aankhoun mein samandar bhara hua hay." :$

The whole day I did nothing but read the book with almonds on my side. I'm addicted to almonds, but still it has no effect on my poor brain. I think I'd always be the same ol' Dinky Mind :( And I forced myself to close the book around 1 am and reminded myself of the 8 straight horrible sessions at university.

Okay, okay, okay. This book is really one of the best books I've ever read. I had the same fun reading this one as I had in reading Angels & Demons. But I think The Kite Runner was better than Angels & Demons. I really became glad how Amir .... okay, I won't spoil the suspence for those who haven't read it yet :P But I seriously enjoyed reading about Amir and Hassan's childhood. They both were so innocent...awwww! Ab I want to watch the movie too :$

Now I want another book - A Thousand Splendid Suns or Tuesdays With Morrie or both :P

*waiting for me's next birthday* :(

Cheerio folks =)

PS: Luhff you Biya. You always give me good books to read. So, when am I getting a new one? :$



then u must not welcome me on ur blog as i am one of those people who hate reading books, can u summarize it in short, so we would be able to know what was the theme/lesson delivered by the writer

Seriously, Dinky sister, you need to fix -- as in FIX -- your blog's feed. I rely on it for getting updates. :/

And yep, The Kite Runner is a splendid book. I just wish Hosseini had balanced out some of his opinions in it, but a great read, nonetheless.

the kite runner is so overwhelming that one cannot finish the book without having tears in their eyes. you must watch the movie, its also very emtional. and i personally liked a thousand splendid suns better. i thought it was more poignant than the former.
iam a book worm so please suggest some good books to me as well.
if youre into urdu books do give peer-e-kamil a try.... u wont regret it!
