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.
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.
“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
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...
