I really enjoyed this book. There was so much irony and deadpan humor. I felt like I knew the town and all the characters- I was invested. One that you miss once you‘re done with it.

BarbaraJean That‘s such a great way of describing this book—I finished it a couple of weeks ago, and I miss it! 6d

Loved this line, “We all dream of finding but what‘s wrong with looking?”

Having recently read the novel for the first time, I couldn't pass up the chance to read the graphic novel too.

Even knowing the story, I was still wrapped up in the beauty of Khaled Hosseini's writing, and the artwork just made the story come alive so much more.

I'm not always a fan of graphic novel adaptations of books I love, but this one is very well done.

MissAimz_55 Ooooo maybe I‘ll revisit with the graphic novel. I loved the kite runner 6d

Goodness, I loved this book. Gorgeous writing, a charming setting, and characters I both wondered about and fell in love with. And in the end, a story that left me wanting to go out and live a fuller life. (And maybe buy an old movie theater or learn to build kites.) A perfect first read of 2020.

A perfect read to ring in 2020. I fell in love with the setting, all of the characters, and of course- the lyrical and poetic writing.
"he declared that just because a thing was poetry didn‘t mean it never happened in the actual world, or that it couldn‘t happen still."

I finished it at 20 minutes past midnight, but I‘m calling it my last read of 2019.
