MargieD2017 | 259 comments I so thoroughly enjoyed this book. (Especially following my Ireland book entry that took forever to get through. Ha!) I found the story of the 'The Kite Runner' to be riveting and haunting capturing the life of an Afghan during the reign of the Taliban. While there are moments of horror in this book they are handled with such gentleness that you are able to read them without shuttering too badly. The story pace and the narrative capture your imagination and your heart. A fantastic paperback published in 2004.

Marina (sonnenbarke) Margie, if you liked this book, I recommend you read A Thousand Splendid Suns as well. It was even better in my opinion. I really love how Hosseini writes and tells stories. I think he really is a great storyteller.

Amy | 8285 comments "Fell pregnant" must be an Australian term. Here is the US, we say "got" pregnant, or in rarer situations "became" pregnant. I like yours better. Oddly enough, I remember what I was reading when I gave birth and was in the first hours of my newborns lives. Except for the third. Who knows what I was reading when he popped out 7 years ago.

Me too. I bought it last year in an effort to try and read it soon, and it still hasn't happened.

Also I've never heard of the phrase "fell pregnant" either. Like someone "fell" into bed with their partner?! lol.
