Kite Runner

A friend of mine, A.F., suggested that I should read "Kite Runner" 2 mounts ago. I took a look at the cover, I saw the author’s name "Khaled Hosseini"* and I somehow became sad.

I don't know why, but recently I hate it when someone who knows you are form Middle East or somewhere other than U.S. wants to point it out to you that: "Hay this is about you guys, is this true?, see how much we care!, we study your culture, or oh so sad that this thing happened in your countries..." (as if I come from more than one country)
Another thing is that I miss my family, my country, my home so much that everything form there: a movie or a book or any news make me so upset that I want to lie down on bed for a whole day. I become so sad with these things that I don't want to tell anybody where I am coming from.

She/He* suggested it to me again and again and finally she/he lent me her/his own copy of the book. I asked her/him if the book had a sad story because I couldn't bear it. She/He said it had sad parts and happy parts: Just Read It. I thought, I had to read this one. Thanks to her/him, I started to read it. I am going to finish it soon.

It is Hilarious. It makes you want to have Pomegranate right away. It makes you wish if it was Yalda every night. It makes you hate war. It changes the meaning of honesty and honor.

Please Read It.

* Khaled Hosseini was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 1965. The son of a diplomat, his family received political asylum in the United States in 1980. He currently lives in California where he is a physician. The Kite Runner is his first novel.

* I think, I should put "He" first as a grammatical- correctness-point. But, by all due respect, I prefer "She" to be first. After all "Ladies First".
