The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

For the few of you who haven't already read this book,don't delay any further! Part history book, part novel, the Kite Runner simultaneously teaches you the history and culture of Afganistan and draws you into the personal coming of age struggles of a young boy. I picked up this book to get a better understanding of the country and people we have been at war with and was pleasantly surprised by the riveting personal story of Amir.

True, true, but for me, my most favorite part was the story of Hassan and his life after Amir. It makes me cry every time I read it. Also, Mr. Khaled does something interesting, his writing can make the reader want to hate the main character at times.
