's review

really liked it
bookshelves: general-fiction, best-of-2020

Well-written and gripping read that's well-deserving of the title of being a modern classic. I did find there to be a lack of a real resolution to the Amir's need for forgiveness, as (view spoiler) However, that lack of a resolution does mirror real life and the story did a good job of avoiding easy answers (even if some of the poetic symbolism toward the end of the book was a bit on the nose).

As a whole, though, some minor gripes with the ending aside, this is a touching and powerful book that I'd definitely recommend!

Rating: 4 Stars (Very Good).
