If You Read No Other Book
The Kite Runner.
(Actually, I listened to it which I think added SO much to the experience. I can't get his voice out of my head.) If you don't find yourself double-checking that this is a NOVEL, and not a MEMOIR, a million times while reading this book I'd be amazed.
Do yourself a favor, though. Don't read the Publisher's Weekly review on Amazon, because it gives away all the important things about the story. What's up with that?
I've moved from that to another sad book, Night, the Holocaust memoir by Elie Wiesel. Really hard to listen to, but so important nonetheless.
