    Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable and beautifully told story of the friendship between two boys, Amir and Hassan, growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them. When Amir and his father flee the country for a new life in California, Amir thinks that he has escaped his past. And yet he cannot leave the memory of Hassan behind him.

    This book carried me way past my bedtime as I couldn't turn it off. Surprised I found it in the kids section as some graphic disturbing description. I will search for more of his work.

  • Angela's Ashes

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

    Karen says: "A classic book *and* a classic audiobook"
    "Riveting at times"
    Overall

    Many things about Angela's Ashes were worth the length. Excellent description and use of language take a person to the Irish countryside. The characters are many faceted and came to life. The ending however was a great dissappointment after such a literary journey.
