The kite runner by Khaled Hosseini

Amy Kite RunnerI thought I hadn’t read this before, but given that the first half of the book held no surprises, it seems I must have at least started reading it, years ago. Broadly, it’s about the terrible things that have happened in Afghanistan, and it is also about a boy who does something terrible, and, years later, gets a chance to try and make things right. It’s a moving story, though I found it a little predictable and overwrought.
