This is one of my most favourite books of all time. It was beautifully written, a really emotive story and what's more it had me gripped from beginning to end. If you liked this book you should definitely read Hosseini's other novel - A Thousand Splendid Suns - in my opinion even better and boy did I cry at the end of it! I hope they make a film out of this like they did with the Kite Runner... although the books are always better
Hosseini's book was absolutely beautiful. I was conflicted because on the one hand, I could empathize with Amir, but he was just as capable of cruelty to Hasan as the others were. I was rooting for the "the kings of Kabal", and balled my eyes out when one was lost. F.Y.I. A Thousand Splendid Suns is my favorite thus far, I can't wait until Hosseini's next work.
I read it and thought it was a remarkable story. I would not say that it is one of my favorites, but that doesn't make the story any less meaningful. I guess I'm a sucker for happy endings. While the ending wasn't necessarily sad, I had hoped that things would be better off (trying not to spoil the ending for anyone who may not have read it yet!).
