Kite Runner

I must say this is by far the BEST novel I have read. I cried while reading this book, I sswear, I don't understand, but somewhere I identified with Aamir.
I have done that to, I have let the demons in my win, and left the courage to come out and fight the situation, let it pass!
To deal with your demons and to live with the knowledge that they live in you all the time, is a very difficult thing indeed.
This book gave me a new perspective to life, a new way of looking at it. And I am glad, that I read it!
For you a thousand times over, Hassan had said
For you a thousand times over, Amir said
For you a thousand times over, I say!
This was also a book I was reading for Orbis Terrarum Challenge :)

Orbis Terrarum Challenge

I came to know of the Orbis Terrarum Challenge, thanks to Priya. ‘Orbis Terrarum’ stands for ‘The whole world’. The challenge is - over a period of 9 months, from April to December 2008, read 9 books by 9 different authors, from different parts of the world. The reader should write about each of these books on his/her blog. I am, most definitely, game for the challenge. I am taking it up. I have decided to experiment with different kinds of books, some out of my usual sphere of reading.

  1. The kite runner by Khaled Hosseini - Afghanistan
  2. Witch of Portebello by Paulo Coleho – Brazil
  3. Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri - India
  4. I did a Bad Thing By Linda Green - England
  5. The Gathering by Anne Enright - Ireland
  6. The Road to lost Innocence by Somly Mam - Cambodia
  7. The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni – Halevy - Austria
  8. Like water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel - Mexico
  9. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery - France!

I CAN"T believe IT! I just COMPLETE this Challenge, MY firast challenge.. my fav challenge on TIME!

I will update y'all :)


Excerpt - 1

I didn't remember what month that was, or what year even. I only knew the memory lived in me, a perfectly encapsulated morsel of a good past, a brushstroke of color on the gray, barren canvas that our lives had become.
