. . . And I'm Back!

Yes I am. Back from Delhi. So expect a few posts on my trip later. Right now I'm feeling way too lazy, so yeah. Anyway, I'm just writing this post to tell all those of you who haven't read The Kite Runner to kill yourself and then go buy a copy. Don't borrow one, buy it. I had read this book some time back but was re-reading it on the train ride to and from Delhi. I absolutely adore that book and I don't know anyone who hasn't immediately fallen in love with it; even people who don't read all that much. It's a truly touching tale and I won't spoil it for you by giving out the plot but, trust me, you just cannot not read it. And I dare you not to cry at least once throughout the whole book. Even if your heart is made of stone, you will feel your eyes well up at some point or the other. I, of course, burst into tears multiple times, which was sort of embarrassing 'cause I was in the train and people kept looking at me like they were worried for my sanity. Yeah. It's that heartwarming. I mean yeah, I cried even when Dumbledore died, but this book made many hard hearted people weep too so it has to be great. Get your copy today if you haven't already read it. After killing yourself for having waited this long, that is.



P.S. I can't wait to read A Thousand Splendid Suns by the same author.

Two mistakes you made in the post which I noticed.
"you will feel your eyes well up at some point or the other..."
You mean swell,right?

and

"I absolutely adore that book and I don't know anyone who hasn't immediately in love with it.."
immediately fell in love with it,right?

Kite Runner is a nice book I agree with you but I don't think I cried and that everyone has to cry,be stone hearted or no!
Kite runner is better than Thousand splendid suns as I've heard.Maybe wrong sources,eh?

No, I meant your eyes well up. It means you'll feel yourself tearing up.

The 2nd thing, yeah typo. Thanks. *goes to edit posts*

I dunno how A Thousand Splendid Suns is but I just wanna read 'cause the author's first book was phenomenal.

P.S. You did cry.
