Kite Runner


So I know that I am probably one of the last people on earth to read this book but I just finished and I am completely "haunted" by it. WOW. In California I started a book club with some friends and forced them to choose this book as the first. We then moved and I didn't really pick it up until the other day. Since I declared a readathon and drove Seth nuts by doing my usual OCD reading routine. That's the problem for me and books, I can't seem to put them down, I just want to finish. I get obsessed with finishing and talking about the book. So much so that I drive people crazy. Anyway....I am an emotional person but not with books. I am pretty good at detaching myself from the characters and I rarely cry. I think the last book I cried was "Where the Red Fern Grows" but I was 8 and those were different times. This book however made me stop and sob several times. I don't want to go into details because I want a certain member of my family to read the book but each "sad part" (for lack of better words) hurt me on a different level. At the end I wanted to call Mrs. Bestor and ask if I could write a book report just for fun. Great book, EVERYONE should read it.

Post Script: When I reread my post I couldn't read "just for fun" without the Nacho Libre accent. (Thanks honey)

I'm sure Mrs. Bestor would let you.

Kite Runner is a great book. We got to hear Hosseini speak at GMU last year, it was fascinating.

Oh Marc...you are the friend who has not only been there but done that. I mean that in a good way, I am jealous.

What ever happened to “books are for rich people”? By the way thanks for coming to my party. You rocked Guitar Hero II. And thanks for making me a millionaire.

Are you talking about Phyllis or Melodie. Sure Melodie wore the leather skirts and drove Ryan Stevenson nuts, but I always felt like I got a better critique of my work from Phyllis. Either way you should publish your book report on your blog and Marc will edit it for you.

I would still give you an A on your book report, even though I don't know who you are. Talk to me. (An old friend)
