The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner | Khalid Hosseini

This is another of those books which has received stonking reviews, and every one of them is entirely justified. I finished it yesterday on the Hammersmith and City line, and attracted one or two odd looks as the tears poured down my face.

This book is … astonishing. A hugely evocative portrait of Afghanistan over 30 odd years, and a story of love, loyalty and betrayal. The characters are so finely drawn, and yet the end of the first “section” hit me like a blow in the chest.

This is one I will read and read again – highly recommended.
