Khaled Hosseini is a genius. A Thousand Splendid Suns and The Kite Runner have to be the two most powerful novels I've ever laid eyes upon.
Book Club read... a story about an afghan girl born into shame and betrayed by her father. I think I even liked it more than the kite runner. khaled Hosseini is a talented writer, he really understands the characters and his readers interest in knowing more about the culture
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini -- St. Paul Juvenile PZ7.B69677 Boy 2006 Hosseini, author of the bestselling novel The Kite Runner, masterfully tells the story of two Afghani women, born 20 years apart, who lives are linked through tragic circumstances in war-torn Kabul. A beautiful novel about an unlikely friendship and indestructible love.

Wonderful book! #books #khaledhosseini
Khaled Hosseini's novel, The Kite Runner, about Afghanistan pre-Soviet invasion is one of the most eye-opening and enlightening books I've ever read. The intense emotion and detail that is recounted by the young boy, Amir, about growing up in Kabul is shockingly remarkable. Admittedly, I didn't know much about Afghanistan's history before and after reading this book, I'll never look at Afghanistan in the stereotypical, western-world view again. It's heartwarming, encouraging and a sometimes devastating tale about two boys growing up in Kabul and gives an inside look at the class system.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (840L). Complete with in-text formative assessments from LightSail. #WeHaveDiverseBooks
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.
"The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini ~ One of my favorite books. Quite depressing but it keeps you on your toes & makes you want to read more.
The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini - The Kite Runner tells the story of Amir, a young boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, whose closest friend is Hassan, his father's young Hazara servant. The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of Afghanistan's monarchy through the Soviet invasion, the exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the rise of the Taliban regime.

And the Mountains Echoed : A brother and sister are separated in childhood, and throughout this epic book, Hosseini weaves a tale of family--across countries and through the perspective of many characters-- and of how, sometimes, we must make hard decisions that hurt us and those we love, as we seek some greater good.

Thoughts on Books: 5 books on my future reading list. Great books shared at Literacy Musing Mondays!
One of my favorite books of all time. This author also wrote Number the Stars, another good book for young readers...and probably the only book I ever read...
<br><strong><a href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/0544336267/?tag=timecom-20" target="_blank">The Giver</a></strong></br>By Lois Lowry. This tale of self-discovery in a dystopian society has a memorable central character, Jonas, and an indelible message— that pain and trauma have an important place in individual lives and in society, and to forget them is to lose what makes us human.
J R L i n d z : Book Review, Movie Review, and Rants: The Giver by Lois Lowry. "And if the freedom to feel and choose matters to you, wouldn't it make sense to let others feel and choose for themselves, too?"
BOOKS WORTH READING: Lois Lowry’s "The Giver" is the perfect dystopian novel, with one atypical feature, its characters live in a world of peace and control. Pain, war, fear and prejudice have been eliminated in this futuristic society. Each person has an assigned role in the Community; there are no difficult or easy choices to make in life. Everybody looks and behaves the same...READ MORE AT WORDSNQUOTES.COM.

Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob, narrates this novel, explaining how the women of her family had their own religious practices that ran counter to the beliefs the men upheld. Through Dinah's voice, this novel imagines the women's stories that the Bible doesn't tell. To call it provocative and rebellious is an understatement; it pushes against patriarchy and suggests an ancient and empowering role for women and women's sexuality.

Favorite book by everyone's favorite person, Tina fey. Laugh out loud funny and the audio book is even better!
Bossypants - Tina Fey I listened to the Audio Book (Tina narrates, so it doesn't lose her voice to someone else's interpretation) and was laughing so hard at some of her anecdotes! I can't recommend this book enough to do it justice, but it is SO WONDERFUL.
Congrats to Bossypants for winning the Audies 2012 Audiobook of the Year. http://audiobookaddicts.com/bossypants-audio-book-tina-fey/
Bossypants by Tina Fey--I listened to the audiobook of Bossypants (read by the author, which I loved) on a road trip and enjoyed it. Though it's not the type of book that I would add to my "re-read" list, it definitely kept me cracking up during some parts and was an entertaining read. Rating: 7/10
Tina Fey, Bossypants. Literally laughed out loud throughout. Audio book all the way :)
Bossypants—Tina Fey. On the 'to read' list for sure.
TINA FEY - BOSSYPANTS (2011) // I love Mrs Tina Fey. She's everything that's right about comedy and one of the only entertainers I allow to have opinions on social issues or life. If you don't think 30 Rock is one of the funniest shows on TV; you've either not seen it, aren't watching it right, don't know what you're talking about, or have such different tastes from my own that I probably shouldn't even know you. Her book is just as fun and sharp, and the audiobook (read by Fey) is definitely its optimal form. I listened to it in one big session and then went through the whole thing again when Dinah got home. I find most memoirs to be horrifically dry and full of sad attempts to share personal feelings and impress you with their experience or insight. Fey is more focused on entertaining and doesn't get too deep with this. She shares plenty, but never so much that it becomes a boring self-aggrandizing drag. Hopefully when she eventually steps away from television she takes up writing more.
