The Kite Runner

I just finished reading the book “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini. I don’t think I have ever cried so much just from reading a book. Actually I think I had a breakdown of some sorts because I was literally sobbing at some parts of the book!

The author illustrates beautifully so many emotions that human beings experience in life such as envy, guilt, evilness, cruelty, loyalty, confusion, betrayal, love and so much more. It shows how some people even though are good can succumb to an evil act at their weakest moment, and how they will justify things just to be able to live with themselves.

The part that touched me the most is when the main character whos never really had God in his life, reaches out to him in a moment of desperation just like so many of us do when we have a problem. That moment in the book made me realize how lucky I am to be a believer and how such a simple act of prayer can bring so much comfort and peace to the soul.

If you feel like reading something good try this book out, you will not regret it ;)
