sweetbejeezus! a movie has been made and it's gonna be out soon!!!
if you haven't read the book, i highly suggest you go grab it. it's one of the most moving books i've read. lemme just copy paste a short synopsis here..kinda busy to recall and compose my own haha:
The Kite Runner tells the story of Amir, a well-to-do Pashtun boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, who is haunted by the guilt of betraying his childhood friend Hassan, the son of his father's Hazara servant. The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of the monarchy in Afghanistan through the Soviet invasion, the mass exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the Taliban regime.
i bought the book for like 400 bucks and my friend, Sugar (starring na pod ka, mam) got a hardbound copy at a sale in National Bookstore-Bacolod (yeah, during our trip there, May!) for like 60 bucks. boo, woe is me!
just the same, go get the book or wait for the movie...prepare your Kleenex! ;)
