Joe 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.

Kelsey 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.

La Petite Américaine Great review.

Tammi Morgan 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.

Destinee Gant Your review was funny and very on point. I however felt the book went downhill after he went to America. I didn't understand why that long stay in America was necessary and why Amir was such a freaking wimp. I did like how the ending wasn't rainbows and unicorns but it was so much devastation before something good happened it was hard to bear.

Elena Brown-soler I agree that the book had a couple cliches, towards the end of the book I was able to guess what was going to happen based on previous events. One being where Hassan's son would go after Amir brought him back to Pakistan. I thought that the small events,obstacles, or details that connected people and the story together was one of the reasons why I enjoyed the book. The ending of the book was a little disappointed to me, but it made sense that Amir and Sohrab would bond over the same thing that Amir and Hassan did when they were Sohrab's age.
