    I know the book is kind of old (2003-04), but I was assigned this to read in my English class a couple weeks ago and I absolutely love it.
    I'm currently on my 4th read through. Both the story and characters are incredibly deep, and... and.. I want MORE!

    Has anyone else read this book and like it as much as I do?
    Easily one of my most favorite books!

    I had to read this for English in my senior year of high school.

    It was very good. I think there's a sequel to it, but I haven't read that yet.

    I read it last year for the concept of "journeys" in English. I also watched the film. Both were great.

    Aw, that's a shame.
    If you don't mind me asking, what about the book didn't appeal to you?

    Is the sequel A Thousand Splendid Suns?
    I thought that was a totally unrelated (in terms of character relations) to The Kite Runner. o.o

    I know the thousand splendid suns is by the same author.

    Wonder why that guy did not like the book?

    Just did a quick Wiki look-at for A Thousand Splendid Suns.
    It's indeed by the same author and has the same setting as The Kite Runner, but shouldn't be a 'sequel' to it if my reading is correct.
