The Kite Runner

A wonderful work… This is one of those unforgettable stories that stay with you for years. All the great themes of literature and of life are the fabric of this extraordinary novel: love, honor, guilt, fear redemption…It is so powerful that for a long time everything I read after seemed bland.
-A review of The Kite Runner.

I stayed up till late night yesterday for I just could not put down this book. And wonder what, long after I finished the book, I could not sleep. How many times has that happened to me in recent times? I don't know!

I wish I could write something like that.

Oh, how I wish!
