11 months ago, my aunt begged me to read Hosseini's Kite Runner. Which I refused to do, because I don't read adult books. Bad enough that I can't stay a child forever. The least I can do is read YA for the rest of my life. Or so I thought. That June, my aunt got me The Kite Runner for my 17th birthday. And because I like her too much to not read it and since I have never "not read" a book I owned, I started it pretty soon after.
And it was amazing. Amazing, you guys! And now, Hosseini has got a new book coming out. I will wait for the paperback, so I guess it'll take a while until I can read it, but it sounds SO good! Oh my...I want this!
An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else.
Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.
