    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.

    Overall

    This book had both its good and bad points. I really enjoyed learning about the old Afghanistan, its culture, its people. It was interesting to take the viewpoint of an insider as the world changed. The characters are all richly drawn and for the most part all the characters are very likable. That is, aside from the main character, who's so flawed as a person it's distasteful. I finished the book, but wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It's saving grace was that it wasn't a bad ending; not a real feel good, but everything is tied up.

    Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in his masterful New York Times best seller American Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny, a true wonder of a novel that confirms Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him."

    Overall

    After completing this book, it left me wishing there was more. The characters are so richly drawn and the narration brings them larger than life. This book was enjoyable and will stay with me. Unlike other reviewers, I'm new to this author and can't wait to try another of his books. I will tell everyone I know about this book.
