I recently took The Kite Runner out into the field and finished the book in only a matter of days. I really recommend it, its definitely one of the best books that I have read in a while. I have to give credit to my sister Sarah for suggesting that I read it.
For those of you that don't know anything about it, it's a book that follows the story of a young Afghan boy as he grows up in an initially peaceful and subsequently war-torn Afghanistan. It then follows him and his father as they flee to America. The story deals with a lot of issues like racism, prejudice, religion, war and the pressure of a boy to grow up in the shadow of his beloved father figure.
I'm serious about this book, it had me close to tears a number of times, you need to pick it up.
