      The Kite Runner- banned for depictions of homosexuality, offensive language, religious viewpoints and sexually explicit scenes. While it does contain some controversial subject matter, some believe the banning of this book speaks to the intolerance toward Afghan culture and history that has flourished in the United States since 9/11. #bannedbooks #books #amreading

      The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini Dark and beautiful--I'm impressed that a book containing so much heartbreak and hardship leaves the reader feeling uplifted and optimistic! It was hard to get through, simply because I'm not well-acquainted with Afghan culture or history, but it was certainly eye-opening and quite enjoyable to become marginally more familiar with such a different background from that which I'm used to.
