I have no idea what I am doing, but what else is new.

The Kite Runner: Graphic Novel - Khaled Hosseini, Fabio Celoni, Mirka Andolfo I haven’t read The Kite Runner novel, so I don’t know how this graphic novel fares in comparison. I do have the novel on my bookshelf waiting to be read, and I can honestly say that after reading this fantastic graphic novel that I will be picking up the book by Khaled Hosseini.I’ll start by saying that there wasn’t anything that I disliked about this graphic novel. I thought that the drawings were stunning, and they really pulled me into the story and made the characters come to life. I focused on each and every panel, and paid such attention to the little details that were in the story. I was blown away by the powerful story, and I was left shocked at some parts. The story is truly heartbreaking, and yet full of hope. The graphic novel gives a good idea of how life in Afghanistan had changed over twenty years – something we don’t learn about at school here in the UK. After reading this, I am interested in finding out more about the Palestinian people and the problems that were/are happening in Afghanistan. I definitely think that a book like this would be a great read for a teenager who wanted to discover more about the subject.The Kite Runner has also been made into a movie, so I’ll definitely be checking that out after reading the novel. I want to thank Bloomsbury for sending me this wonderful book, as it’s really opened my eyes and encouraged me to want to learn more about the issues at hand.
