Life's truth!

With a backdrop of Taliban ruled Afganistan, the story is set up in Kabul and partly in America, of two little boys-one a royal Pashtun blood-Amir and the other a mere Hazara- Hassan.The story is of their lives, their friendship, separation, guilt, truths and secrets.The story goes to tell you how one coward decision darkens the future, how one lie erects boundaries, how distances crush relationships, how love never loses faith, how life becomes cheap, how killing a human being under the name of religion and God???s wish becomes passion, how one???s caste becomes one???s reason of death???h...

>It has honest expressions, simplicity and the words carry the fearless truth.
>The story reaches you; you can feel it pumping in your heart all the while.

>It is that kind of a book which will remain with you forever; no matter how heart-breaking it is, it will always be close to your heart.

>Every time you will keep down the book, for a break, you will feel the urge to pick it up again and reach the end; however, honestly at some places I felt the story should not unfold, felt that I don???t want to know what happens next, I don???t want to miss a beat again-all this because you become the part of the story. You feel the pain, the pinch and at the end, the hope too!

"Redemption" it is!

Set in the Background of Afghanistan which now people recognize by only one word "Taliban " the word now used as a synonym for "Terror" ... But earlier there was a anti taliban life there .. there where a strange Bonding developed between Amir and Hassan, two boys who have been bred together and later , one ruins others life... yet he always remains loyal to him and considers him what the other did'nt "Friend"

This is a journey from Afghan to Pakistan to the "uncertain land" of U.S.A and a detour back.. tracing your steps back to Afghan, a changed Afghainstan,a miserable one, ruled by mercilles people who call themselves "Taliban" and kill in the name of God.
A gripping story, a true page turner, a story that guarantes to put a smile to your face. Dont hesitate.. Grab your copy as soon as you can.

The Kite Runner- A Sea of Emotions.........

I have really fallen in love with the way Khaled Hosseini writes.Beyond doubt ,this is the best book of fiction I've ever read.
All the emotions have been conveyed in a manner that the reader is bound to think about nothing but the protagonist Amir and reflect on how life unveils itself at its own pace.
And here are two advices to all those who are gonna order the book:
Firstly, check out for the two other books by this author- 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' and 'And The Mountains Echoed'..Go for the three books together.
Secondly' start reading only once...

You just start and the book won't leave you till the end!

A masterpiece I may call, but you just have to start reading it and the book won't leave you till the end.
Nothing in this book becomes predictable and you love whatever comes through.
Cowardice of a boy being so explicitly shown and the guilt that one goes through, can never be explained as good...

This book will make you cry, rejoice , scared and satisfied at last.
