About a month ago I watched a movie called The Kite Runner and it was so good! I knew this movie was also a book, so I decided to get it from the library. *When I watch movies that are based on books I like to read the book either before or after so that I can see how it compares to the movie, and vice versa.
The book (by Khaled Hosseini) was just as good as the movie, if not better. The movie follows the book really well, which was nice since most movies are so different than the books they're based off of. I listened to the book on CD, and the person who read the book was also the author, so it was neat to hear the author read the book and pronounce all of the Afghan words the way they are meant to be said.
Although this was a good book, it was really sad and difficult to get through at times. However, it was a tale of redemption and forgiveness – not just forgiving others, but also forgiving yourself and letting go of the demons in your past that haunt you. This book was thought-provoking and gives you food for thought.
