The Kite Runner

For you, a thousand times over.

I guess this line will stay in my head for a long time, I hope forever.

Anyway, I just wrote this because I needed a fix. You know those times when you feel like you just had to do something, no thinking, no questions asked? This is one of those times for me. And that’s because I just finished Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner. I don’t have anything else to say.

Hmm, maybe except for this. You’re missing something big if you don’t get to read this creation.

The Kite Runner

This is a story about war, violence, discrimination – the most cruel things you can imagine in this world. But most importantly, this is a story of friendship, trust, and redemption from the past. There is a way to be good again.

Peace.

PS I will do my best to make a review of The Kite Runner. Or just write a lengthier post about it. It’s not your ordinary Gen-fiction. It’s something else. I’m actually off to buy my next book but I think no book could compare to the one I just read. 😦

PPS Shout-out to Christian of asteeg.net. He’s the guy who recommended this to me. Thanks, man! By the way, there’s already a motion picture for this book and it’s already on my download queue in torrent. Heh heh.

    Hi Spence,
    I would love to hear your opinion on another book. The title is “Outcasts of Skagaray”. I wrote it, and hoped people who are not afraid of their own feelings would read it. It would be great to hear what you have to say.

    SPENCE says: Wow. Thank you. I’ll look for it in the bookstores since I don’t own any credit cards online. Heheh. Thank you, mister.

    Hmmm. So you’ve read it. It’s really a good book. Actually, it’s the best book I have read in my entire life. I am looking forward for the film, according to my cousin, it’s going to be released here in the Philippines. She has seen a poster of the movie somewhere in Manila.

    As for my review of the book, I still haven’t finished writing it. I’m still in the process of writing it. Urgh. It’s been months since I read the book and I still haven’t published a review of it.

    As what I have told you in my blog, you may also want to read Hosseini’s second novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns.

    SPENCE says: I thank you again. This is also the best book I’ve read in my whole life. No other book has moved me this much, haha. This is a totally effective start for me to go back into reading books. And yeah, i was hoping they’d show the film here. Good luck with your review. I’ll check his other book some time. Enough war and violence for the mean time. Heh.

    Wow! That book seems to have really struck you — and now it’s intriguing me. It’s been awhile since I’ve last held a great book in my hands. I’ve never really had the luxury of time nowadays. Hayy. But, I shall be hunting for this book! If ever I have time (summer is near, anyway) I’ll read that.

    Of course, boys cry too! It’s surreal if anyone thinks otherwise. 😛 Hahaha.

    Thanks for leaving your oh-so-enlightening comment! 🙂 I really really appreciate it. 😛

    SPENCE says: No problemo!

    Yes boys do cry. It pisses me off when they say they don’t.
    I heard a lot of good things about those books. Been wanting to pick them up. Maybe I will when I have time to read.

    cool. I knew there was something with that book, i better get a copy this weekkkkk!

    Don’t worry, everyone cries. Just, don’t cry over spilled milk. 😛 Unless, that milk cost so much and you really wanted it. Am i making sense here? 😛

    btw, 1408 is this thriller/horror movie. The hotel room is haunted, and an author wanted to write a book something about it. But then its too much for him to handle.

    toodles!

The Knight

I'm a sizzling knight in shining armor! I'm Sir Lancelot and I'm ready to take your breath away. Haha. No, seriously, I'm just a boy trying to grow up; a guy trying to look for his place in this f*cked-up world. Amen? Amen.
