The Kite Runner is the story of Amir, a Sunni Muslim, who struggles to find his place in the world because of the aftereffects and fallout from a series of traumatic childhood events. An adult Amir opens the novel in the present-day United States with a vague reference to one of these events, and then the novel flashes back to Amir's childhood in Afghanistan.
@Overstock - Shel Silverstein writes and draws an intriguingly ambiguous classic, the meaning of which will probably always be debated. The Giving Tree tells the tale of a young boy and the tree who, literally piece by piece, gives her life for him.http://www.overstock.com/Books-Movies-Music-Games/Giving-Tree-by-Shel-Silverstein-Hardcover/81113/product.html?CID=214117 $10.91
5 Stars. Futuristic Adventure. Book 3 of the "Hunger Games" trilogy. Surprising twists, and Katniss choses between Gale & Peeta. I loved the series to the end. Won't voice opinions for a while. Don't want to ruin what happens for others.
