The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hossein - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Kite Runner:

Traveling during a war for friendship, shame, and atonement.

My favorite Khaled Hossein quote from the book:

"There is only one sin, only one, and that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft."

Questions I pondered while reading The Kite Runner:

If God is love, why are so many religious people full of hate?

How far would I travel to atone for my shame?

My review of The Kite Runner:

It made me think, hard.

It made me feel, hard.

*bonus* The Taliban hate the book, meaning it must be read.

*Regularly challenged, be a rebel and read it*
