The Kite Runner

by Khaled Hosseini


  • The Kite Runner is the story of Amir, a Sunni Muslim, who struggles to find his place in the world because of the after effects and fallout from a series of traumatic childhood events.

My opinion: 

  • Absolute perfection. As of today, this is the only book I've rated 50/50.

  • This book was recommended to me by my boss at my previous job and when I started reading, I couldn't stop. Literally, I postponed all my tasks & meetings, just so I could finish this book.

  • I am not an emotional person. Most of the time I think rationally and logically, but this book brought out almost every single emotion I possess (so, like 3 lol). Almost teared up with my non-shooting eye.

Favorite quote:

“For you, a thousand times over”

Quiet is peace. Tranquility. Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life. 

Silence is pushing the off button. Shutting it down. All of it. - Amir”

Khaled Hosseini

Key takeaways: 

  • When you lie, you steal someones right to the thruth.

  • I've made it my life mission (not due to this book) to help those who were dealt with bad cards in life. On some nights I cannot sleep, knowing what type of pain actually exists. This book pictures it "beautifully".

  • Stop with the wars. Stop the pain. Stop the suffering. It's not worth it...
