'The Kite Runner' by Khaled Hosseini

I am not easily moved (and I don't say that to brag, I consider this is a personality defect). However, I read Mr. Hosseini's book in one sitting — it was a Saturday a few weeks ago. At the end, I cried. I haven't been affected by a piece of writing in this manner in a very long time. I am grateful.
