The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. A friendship between a wealthily boy and the son of his father's servant. Moving but would be even more difficult to read now than it was several years ago (when I read it), given that the book is set in Afganistan.

Jodi Picoult is a master of implanting you into a story, letting you hear all the opinions and feelings of each character without telling you all their dirty secrets and motivations until the very end.  This book was painful, compelling and important.

My Sister's Keeper - Jodi Picoult : If you read the book, watched the movie, and walked out of it utterly annoyed: we are friends. If you haven't read the book and watched the movie: read the book. If you haven't done either: read the book.

Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher or a colleague. Someone older, patient and wise, who understood you when you were young and searching, and gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly twenty years ago.

Tuesdays with Morrie is a memoir by American writer Mitch Albom. The story was later recreated by Thomas Rickman into a TV movie of the same name directed by Mick Jackson. This starred Jack Lemm.
