I read this book more than a year ago. I could not wait to read the book because so many people loved it. I sat down to read the book and kept crying. I don't read books to cry, I read them to escape. I finished the book and yelled at anyone I could think of who had recommended the book.

The fact is, more than a year later the book has stayed with me. I have read many other books and could not tell you the author, plot or ending. In fact, I might even reorder some of the books because I read them so fast, and they were meaningless.

The Kite Runner affect lasted. I had to watch the movie, like all movies that come out based on books I've read. While not the same, it reminded me of the emotions I felt while reading this book.
