it was ok
Read in January, 2006

Classic case of a book that I wanted to love. I tried and tried and tried. But I never developed any emotional attachment to any of the characters and was left just so depressed and not won over by the beautiful language. I look at Kite Runner and think, here is a very sad depressing, dark story---but I was riveted. I found a connection to the characters to hang onto throughout all of the ugliness, to keep me reading. I felt reading this book was a chore.
