Khaled Hosseini

Post by Dixie » Mon Nov 05, 2007 7:45 am

Does anybody know Khaled Hosseini? He's a writer from Afghanistan. I discovered him about a couple months ago, when I bought his novel A Thousand Splendid Suns. I absolutely loved the novel and couldn't wait to read his previous one, The Kite Runner, which I am reading at the moment. They both are absolutely fantastic.

I was wondering if anyone else here is familiar with this author and if you have read any of his novels.

Hey Lennye! Why don't you tell me your opinion about the book? Did you like it? I'm halfway through it... I really love it.

I borrowed his Kite Runner eaudiobook from my netlibrary months ago. It was a strange feeling to listen to him narrating his own book. Nonetheless, the book was nice to hear. It has a vivid image of different cultures that I like. And one thing I found it very disturbing is that there are people who sympathize with Hitler. Those people never turn out to be good, and this story kinda proved me right.

I would love to hear him narrating his book!

I'm really enjoying it. It gives me so many different feelings... anger, sadness, sometimes happiness... it's really amazing. I'm definitely becoming a fan of Khaled Hosseini's work :D
