The Kite Runner

The Kite RunnerThe Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini gave me a taste of Afghani culture and history. So much so, that I am tempted to read more about Afghanistan. It is a thrilling, easy-to-read novel that touched my heart. After reading first few pages I just couldn’t stop reading.

It was scary to read about the cruelty of Taliban. I can’t fathom how is it possible for these people to be so cruel. In the back of my mind I kept comparing Afghani culture with that of Indian. It was really amazing to find similarities and as a result I could relate to quite a few aspects of Afghani culture as portrayed in the story. I am looking forward to Hosseini’s next novel “A Thousand Splendid Suns“.
