Kite Runner

I’ve heard some people refer to the Kite Runner as a book about two boys growing up in Afghanistan.  While it does start out about two boys growing up in Afghanistan, I think the book is much more about Afghanistan, what it was like before the Taliban and what has happened to its people since the Taliban.

Parts of this book were difficult to read because the main character is so likeable and so horrible at the same time, but it was definitely worth reading.  I recommend the Kite Runner.
