Book Recommendation: The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is the most powerful and moving book I have read in a while.  It is an incredibly beautiful yet violent story of friendship, betrayal, love, cruelty, grief and unconditional devotion.  I finished the nearly 400-page story in two days.  I cried more times than I can count.  I highly recommend it.

The movie came out in 2007; I haven't seen it.  A DVD is available here.
