Sohrab shrugged and smiled, wider this time. " I dont mind. I can wait. It's like the sour apples."
"One time, when I was really little, I climbed a tree and ate these green, sour apples. My stomach swelled and became hard like a drum, it hurts a lot. Mother said, that if I'd just waited for the apples to ripen, I wouldnt have become sick. So now, whenever I really want something, I try to remember what she said about the sour apples." .........................................
The above was taken fm the book Kite Runner. I'm done with it ...I was really moved when i read the above. One of my favourite clause...besides "For you ,a thousand times over........"
It's a great book indeed. Thank you my friends for the great recommendations....but surprisingly, i didnt need a box of tissue next to me.. thou, i really could feel the agonies, the pains, the happiness , the sufferings etc........
I didnt like the character Amir in the beginning, but grew to forgive him when he tried to redeem himself.
But I have to admit, that I nearly threw the book when Amir told the little boy he would have to go an orphanage for just a little while and the little boy begged and begged. And then for Amir to find him in the tub that way. It was so disturbing to read that, and you knew just how Amir felt, the ripping out of his heart, and how he prayed and all the things he promised God. This book was very heart-wrenching.
I could go on and on abt the book..cos, when im on it, i could vaguely imagined, how the whole scenarios took place.
But the author didn't have to spell it out for us. It ended perfectly, with the kite running .
Now, that im done with this one, anyone got any good reviews or recommendation of a good read ?
