Kite Runner

kiterunner.jpgI completed my read in 8 hours.

Record breaking!

The story is so captivating that I couldn’t put the book down. Yes, it was one of those Saturdays. And I weeped shamelessly while reading.

It is really heart wrenching and the story is so well written. I could feel every pain, shame, love, loyalty, sacrifies and significance in each and every word.

The story goes about a boy who grew up running away from a terrible secret, from people he loves. Returning years later, only to understand everything about his life and have a final chance to make things right.

Its one of the books selected for reading in the book club I joined here. Well, many book club meetings after (where I was only at the very first one!), I am trying now to catch up on the readings.

Besides, I’ve just returned from New York. So I took the opportunity when I was there to grab many many books because 1. English Books everywhere 2. Weak USD (Hehehe)

But I just realised Amazon is a better bargain. Damn!
