Throwback Thursday – The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini


Throwback Thursday is hosted by Renee of It’s Book Talk.  This meme was created to share old favorites and/or books published over a year ago.  Today I’m going to be sharing The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.

Why I chose this book:

This book was INCREDIBLE!  It had such an emotional effect on me.  This is how I felt while reading it…


It was one of the books that reinvigorated my love of reading.  In fact, I don’t think I was writing book reviews yet when I read The Kite Runner, so I don’t have a review to attach to this post.  All I can say is it was a book that stayed with me for weeks afterwards, and it remains a favorite.  Definitely a five-star read.

Have you read The Kite Runner?  What did you think?  Please feel free to share.


Thank you for reading. Until next time…

    • Thank you The Rulebook. ☺️
      The Kite Runner was one of my all-time favorite reads. I have A Thousand Splendid Suns but have not read it yet. I’d love to hear what you think about it.

      Thanks for your comment. 😊

    • My daughter, who encouraged me to read The Kite Runner, said she liked The Kite Runner more than A Thousand Splendid Suns. And I don’t think she ever finished And the Mountains Echoed. I have both of those books. I’m going to have to read And the Mountains Echoed so I can weigh in. But don’t you just love how we all appreciate books for different reasons?
      Thanks for your comment. 😊


    • Some of the subject matter is poignant and difficult to digest for sure, Kathryn, but it’s realistic, and the entire story as a whole encompasses loyalty, trust, betrayal, and so much more. So many elements to this incredible book. I hope you reconsider and give it a try.
      Thanks for your comment.

    • Aw…thank you Kathy. 💕 I’ve been trying to put a bit more effort into constructing my posts to reflect my personality. I hope I’m succeeding on that front.
      The Kite Runner is a very dynamic read. It took me on an emotional rollercoaster. Quite profound. Excellent writing. It’s a book you won’t easily forget.
