This is yet another in a very tall pile of books I purchased many, many moos ago but never got around to reading. But a few weeks back I finally picked it up and was not disappointed at all.
The story starts with Amir being called back to Afghanistan by his fathers business partner telling him there is a way to make it all okay.
Then the story quickly jumps into Amir's life as a child living in Kubal with his father, their servants, and all of the people his father surrounded himself with.
We follow Amir and his father as they flee to America, witness Amir's adjustment to the America but most importantly we witness his fathers adjustment to America.
At the mid way point we are brought back to the phone call that changes and shapes the direction of Amir's life and let him begin healing for past sins.
This is a coming of age story turn a story of making up for life long regrets.
I believe my life is fuller now that i have read this story. It was heart wrenching at many, many points but it also touched my soul.
I give it five out of five stars and recommend it to all my reader friends.
