Why you should read this book:
- To better learn about the modern world outside the United States, and to better understand what happened in Afghanistan.
- To see (and feel) Hassan's selfless friendship toward Amir.
- To redefine sacrifice, and see both sacrifice and trials in a way most Americans don't understand.
- To know that failing to act or not doing something can be just as bad as doing something or committing a wrong.
- To really understand my favorite line: "For you, a thousand times over."
Why you should not read this book:
- It is heart-wrenching. In my opinion, it was not too graphic, but the horrors that were portrayed are devastating.
- You may lose some innocence in exchange for reader-experience and a better understanding of the world.
