I'm currently reading The Kite Runner "an unforgettable story of honor, courage and betrayal set in war-torn Afghanistan as two small boys test their friendship to its limits. Compelling, heartrending, and etched with details of a history never before told in fiction, The Kite Runner explores the ways in which we’re damned by our moral failures, and of the extravagant cost of redemption."
I'm enjoying the read...even though it is sad.
Here's what page 123, starting with the fifth sentence, plus two more, say:
"What I remember next is the blinding light of early morning as I climbed out of the fuel tank. I remember turning my face up to the sky, squinting, breathing like the world was running out of air. I lay on the side of the dirt road next to a rocky trench, looked up to the gray morning sky, thankful for air, thankful for light, thankful to be alive."
Thanks Patti for the tag and in turn, I'll tag the following five peeps:
