The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Kite_Runner_ThePowerful story. Graphic in so many ways but poignant and profound too. The graphic content is written is a very sensitive way, not that it lessens the effect, but it’s not graphic like a blood-fest movie is – it’s descriptive and takes you into the heart of the scene, leaves you feeling all those emotions. The horrors and violence in the environment around was justly described, and sadly, very true to life. The social structures and cultural differences, the politics that divided families and towns, and the conscience and heartache that travels across time and space, never quite leaving or relieving your mind…

Wow. This was indeed a powerful story, that was told so well. I read it a while ago now, and still feel this strongly about it.

 

Highly recommended
