    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Story

    This book will teach you so much about a culture that has been in midst for a long time. I truly felt connected to the characters and though not very knowledgeable, admittedly, of middle east conflicts, thought they did a great job at walking you through the historical part of it without making it about that.

    Quentin and his friends are now the kings and queens of Fillory, but the days and nights of royal luxury are starting to pall. After a morning hunt takes a sinister turn, Quentin and his old friend Julia charter a magical sailing ship and set out on an errand to the wild outer reaches of their kingdom. Their pleasure cruise becomes an adventure when the two are unceremoniously dumped back into the last place Quentin ever wants to see: his parent's house in Chesterton, Massachusetts.

    I'm not going to completely trash this book as its not 100% bad; however, read the review from the Washington Post and verbatim- thats exactly how this book is. The language takes away from the book way too much. As the Washington Post said it: "its been done before and better."
