Teen Review: The Kite Runner

Kite RunnerTitle:  The Kite Runner

Author:  Khaled Hosseini

Summary: “Story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father’s servant, this is a beautifully crafted novel set in a country that is being destroyed. It is about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption; and an exploration of the power of fathers over sons. Family, love, and friendship told against the devastating backdrop of a splintering Afghanistan.”

Gut reaction: shocked!
Why: So much violence to such a young boy that doesn’t know a lot about life yet.
Who would like this book: People interested in the Life of Pi, or the Soviet War in Afghanistan. People who can handle intense situations.
