The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Hello there!

I sit here and wonder if there’s anyone still reading this space. I haven’t updated here in two months. That is the longest I have been away from the blog, in terms of writing. I think the frequency is only going to get worse, but one thing that I can assure you is that I am never going to stop writing here and I am going to try that I keep bringing frequent interesting posts. 🙂

About this book, well, the strange thing is that I read it in the exact same way as the other much-loved book by  the same author – ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ and I was eagerly waiting to know which one I like more. It’s weird but I went through extremely similar feelings while reading both.


I read both of them in same situations, getting bored, not knowing what to do. I have the e-book in my laptop, might as well read it. Then, how each of them hooked me is beyond explanation. This was followed by late night sessions to read on my laptop till my eyes itched and crying all through it. I should mention here that I read Thousand Splendid almost two years back. The crying remained the same for both books.


Khaled Hosseini has a way with words that can hold you like no one can. The sentences are such that it will take time for you to get over them and the story, well, it will leave you exhausted. Exhausted and overwhelmed with emotions. A tale of unbelievably strong friendship with a backdrop of Afghanistan war crisis and personal insecurities.

As far as I am concerned, this is a must read and so is the other one by him, ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’. Most importantly, whenever you read any of these, definitely comment here about your views. I love these two books just way too much, I want to know everyone’s opinions on these. 🙂


I hope you get to read this as early as possible.

Till next time (which will be soon)!

  1. I loved both these books too. I shed many many tears during A Thousand Splendid Suns..not quite as many for Kite Runner.

    Have you read his third novel? The Mountains Echoed? It was quite dissapointing for me after these first two novels.

    • Hi zoya! 🙂 I haven’t read it but everyone seems to say the same thing, I would love to read it sometime, if B-School life permits that is! I have read a total of 40 pages from a novel after joining here! 😀

  2. Srish!!! You won’t believe. I checked this space today after a really long time and you had updated it!! I haven;t read either *hides her face*

  3. Both of these books are my favourites and very rightly said Khaled Hosseini has a way with words. I have cried whole night after reading these two and still get chills thinking about the storyline.

Have something to say? I would love to hear from you :)
