The Kite Run­ner” by Khaled Hos­sei­ni — This is actu­al­ly a nov­el, but you would nev­er know it based on the his­tor­i­cal­ly accu­rate infor­ma­tion. The sto­ry cen­ters around a boy born and raised in Afghanistan in the ear­ly 1970’s and it’s affect on him through­out the Afghani wars with the Sovi­ets and then lat­er the tran­si­tion from a monar­chy to the iron-fist­ed rule of the ultra-extrem­ist Tal­iban. This book is about 350+ pages and I read it in just a cou­ple days. That should tell you some­thing about it: once you pick it up you won’t be able to put it down. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (sent by Sheila Cohen)
