    The Kite Runner was a gripping and emotional story of betrayal and redemption, and the story had certainly thrilled and moved me at the same time. The author Khaled Hosseini told a story of Amir who struggled to find his place in the world because of the aftereffects and fallout from a series of traumatic childhood events. When reading the novel, I was introduced to a world of Afghan life, which I found very fascinating and interesting. When reading The Kite Runner, I found myself always thinking the author was actually reflecting and writing about his own life and experiences throughout his fiction story. I learned lots of lessons from reading The Kite Runner, and it truly was a very meaningful story. Throughout the actions, dialogs, and relationships of the characters, I read ideas on forgiveness and love. The most successful part of the book was that it had a great sense of fate and justice, and Amir had overcome evil in the end, despite all odds.

      I like the story of this book but it wasn't something I would reread. It's a little tough to get into at first but then the second half of the book just flies by. There is a lot of emotional drama in this and it's not for the light hearted.
