The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini
Crusader’s Cross, James Lee Burke
Up Country, Nelson DeMille

During the school year most of my recreational “reading” is done in the car. I love audiobooks. By far the recent best was The Kite Runner, read by the author Khaled Hosseini. While, as Kenneth Champeon says “the book can sometimes be melodramatic and garrulous,” the story is compelling and presents historical and cultural insights from the perspective of an Afghan-American. There is much to learn from the novel, about Aghanistan, about love, about life, about good and evil, about ourselves.
