At times shocking, at times almost too unbearable to read, The Kite Runner tells a story without dancing around issues or behavior, despite how questionable. I wasn't sure I would enjoy the book, but I found myself entranced by the world the Kite Runner created of Afghanistan in the 1970s, and shocked and aggrieved at the portrait of modern-day Afghanistan. This book opened my eyes to a culture, despite it's fictional account, and I found myself emotionally involved in the struggle of Amir to find and earn forgiveness.
