Liked your review. I feel the same way. The first half was amazing, emotional and heartwrenching but the second half was such crap that it took away from the first half. I ended up absolutely hating the novel and feeling a bit insulted. This is deemed best selling novel material? Sheesh. I guess I should pump out a hackneyed cliched ridden soap opera novel so I can join the ranks of so called best selling authors too.

I completely agree with you and Joe. This novel really manages to be both predictable and condescending, which is all the more disappointing since it starts out so well.

Really good review. You managed to articulate my thoughts perfectly. Much better than I managed to do. Bravo! Couldn't agree more with your points on the Kite Runner.
