The Kite Runner (Graphic Novel) by Khaled Hosseini
It is not often that I buy a graphic novel based on contemporary literature and with no idea what it is about except that I kept seeing it in book stores and have heard about the movie. I am just not into drama so I did not bother to find out what it was all about. But it just so happened that I was in one of my not-going-home-without-buying-one-graphic-novel moods that I bought a copy of “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini and I am glad that my mood served me well. As millions preceding me have discovered, this is such a beautiful, poignant story of a boy in Kabul becoming a man in America but finding redemption in the land of his people. Some might cry or feel a lump in their throat after reading but however they find themselves, it will always be accompanied by a sense of gratitude for the hope that it brings. The illustration was very suitable to its tone, neither disappointing nor overpowering, it simply complemented a very touching story—something of a rarity these days of in-your-face attitude.
