The Kite Runner

I really enjoyed this one. It was a little sad and not the most upbeat happy book, but I think it was really well written and a much easier read after reading the Scarlet Letter!! :) This was a story about a boy who grew up in Afghanistan and then came to live in America when things got tough there. He ends up going back to his home town though to resolve some issues and it describes a bit about the war and everything that was going on there. At times I was reading about things happening to these fictional characters and it was sad to realize those kind of things probably did happen to real people. The story kind of ends different too, it doesn't really resolve everything but they leave you with a little hope that it could eventually have a happy ending. It was definitely intriguing. It makes me want to read his other one someday soon...A Thousand Splendid Suns!
