from “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini

I finished this book yesterday and can honestly say that it was a great read. Here’s an excerpt, enjoy.

On those days the rocket fire eased up a bit and the gunfighting was light, Hassan would take Sohrab to the zoo to see Marjan the lion, or to the cinema. Hassan taught him how to shoot the slingshot, and, later, by the time he was eight, Sohrab had become deadly with that thing: He could stand on the terrace and hit a pinecone propped on a pail halfway across the yard. Hassan taught him to read and write- his son was not going to grow up illiterate like he had. I grew very attached to that little boy- I had seen him take his first step, heard him utter his first word. I bought children’s books for Sohrab from the bookstore by Cinema Park- they have destroyed that too now- and Sohrab read them as quickly as I could get them to him. He reminded me of you, how you loved to read when you were little, Amir jan. Sometimes, I read to him at night, played riddles with him, taught him card tricks. I miss him terribly.

Mid-Week Update (6)

On Saturday, I made my first trip out of Illinois since I was about 2. Surprisingly, it was to Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. It was a very long car ride and I was constantly overwhelmed by all of the wide open spaces being from crowded, over- populated Chicago. Our destination was the Premium Outlet mall where I got my boots from Famous Footwear and a cute ski hat from Reebok. I had lunch at ChinaMax at the eatery, just fried rice and Mongolian chicken. I could’nt believe how different the people were there and how small towny they seemed, almost oblivious ,but not in a bad way. Something else that shocked me was to see a Pepperidge Farm outlet store…

The movie “Pareja de Tres” was good. I enjoyed it for the whole menage a trois theme and how mature they were about it. Of course I watched it with English subtitles because anime is the only thing I care to watched dubbed and the Spanish dialect of Spanish is a bit harder for me to understand than the Mexican dialect.

My mother surprised me Monday with a red tin of chocolated covered cherries that she ordered specifically for me and they are soooo goode and the chocolate is of a much better quality than what I’m used to (I’ll try not to overdose on them before Saturday.)

I started reading ‘The Kite Runner’ and it’s brought me very near tears twice and I’m now in the middle of chapter ten. It’s a really good book, I can’t wait to finish and I definitely want to see the movie when I’m done with the book.

I hope everyone is having and will continue to have a good week #;-)
