The Kite Runner
Beautiful power of description. Had read it about 2 years ago but it still evokes in me the emotions that Khali Hosseini was able to generate through this novel. Its deeply touching and moves you on a level when you are forced to look at your life and question that whether you have ever had a Hassan in your life who is so devoted and all you have done for him is to cheat.
Also the novel gave me a first look into the Afghanistan lifestyle and a terror view of the Taliban regime.
It was interesting, fun and informative.
