I had the kite runner on my tbr for ages and i kept it putting off because i knew it would be a hard story to read, and it was hard and painfull, i found myself crying and needing to put the book dawn and give my heart a break, but it was also real and beautiful and touching and worth all the pain and tears, this one is defintely going in my favorits list.

And that, I believe, is what true redemption is, Amir jan, when guilt leads to good.

This is a historical fiction book about a boy named Amir during events such as the fall of the Afghanistan monarchy and the rise of the Taliban regime. This would be a good book to use with high school students. The teaching strategy I would use with this book would be independent reading. #ucflae3414f19

ChrisC I would offer a variety of references materials at the students‘ instructional level for independent use as my ELL strategy. UDL principle 4.2 optimize access to tools and assistive technology. This principle will provide students multiple means of action and expression. 3w

Another book I read as a teenager that I remember having an impact.
I had a bit of a scroll on goodreads and it seems most people agree; I was surprised at the venom in some of the one star reviews though! I guess if you dislike something very popular you have to hate it extra hard? Ah well, I loved it so I guess I'm just one of the saps that agrees with the crowd on this one 🤷‍♀️

cherinium I hate seeing reviews like that. I guess they feel like they have to justify why they don't agree with the crowd. I thought this story was heartbreakingly beautiful. 1mo

100 pages in, the story is already heartbreaking 😢 And having read Khaled before, I don't think I'm ready for whatever it is about to come in the next 300 pages.

Reggie That‘s why I haven‘t read anything else by him. Cause he is a great writer, but I don‘t know if I‘ll ever be emotionally ready. 3mo
Davor @Reggie I totally get that! I am actually the opposite, I'm more drawn to books that I know will be emotionally draining, I like putting myself through the torture even though I still complain about it 🤣 3mo
Scochrane26 @Reggie I think that‘s why I haven‘t read his other books, too. I loved Kite Runner so much, even though it was very emotional. 3mo

Aren't we all just chasing after love and approval from someone that matters to us? Do you know what it's like to live your life with regrets circling round the back of your mind? This story captures how painful that journey can be and it makes you feel like you are right there with him. I don't recommend this for anyone under 18 but definitely 10/10 ⭐

“For you, a thousand times over.” A book with heartwarming and heart wrenching parts. It tells the story of brotherly love and the trials of life - secrets, betrayal, and, ultimately, a second chance to right a terrible wrong. It takes place in Afghanistan and also talks about life before and after the Taliban, and this comes from an Afghani writer - a perspective not often seen in the Western world. I couldn‘t put it down!

LiterarySloth All his novels so far are great. 4mo

I was a bit ‘meh‘ about this book up to about 40 per cent, them BAM, it hit me right in the heart. Encompassing Afghanistan, Pakistan and the USA over a couple of decades and conveying the troubles through the eyes of Amir, a twelve-year-old boy. This story takes you on his journey into adulthood, his family, and how different his life has become and could have been. Hosseini‘s writing is heartfelt ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Freespirit I loved this book. Not an easy read. There is an excellent movie also❤️ 4mo
Ms_T @Freespirit I didn‘t know there was a film. I‘ll definitely have to check that out 📚 4mo

I know you all know this, and I‘m very late to the party, but WHAT A BOOK ♥️ Pulling on all the big human emotions and motivations - love, guilt, shame, fear, compassion, loyalty - this is one of the best books I‘ve ever read. Superb. Absolutely superb.

Cathythoughts I‘ve only seen the movie ... you make me want to read the book ♥️👍🏻 7mo
JennyM @Cathythoughts I‘ve held off reading it because people kept telling me it was so good and I felt a little wary of expecting too much. But Cathy, it‘s wonderful, and actually different to what I was expecting. I highly recommend 7mo
Buechersuechtling I never read that book. I only know the film. So moving. Additionally I know the audiobook – and – no wonder – it could not quite transport the (same powerful) pictures the film had already planted in my head. But yes, I agree. Goose bumps. 7mo

I had heard about this book for years but avoided it because I knew something horrible happens in it...and the suffering is worse than I imagined. I learned so much about why people choose to stay in a war torn country because it is their home. Customs, prejudice and judgements caused people to lie and hurt the people they love the most.

This is a story about friendship, sacrifice, love, lies, repentance, tragedy, pain and redemption.The devastation of Afghanistan, the abolishment of monarchy, the Russian invasion and then Taliban rule has been described very boldly and is really heartbreaking. This book is not for the light-hearted people at all. This is a tragic story which will leave you sad and heartbroken.
