I was having a discussion with a friend of mine about the value of novels. For the
longest time, I didn’t understand the value of reading a novel. Science books,
business books had so much information about the world and how it works. Why
read something imaginable when you can read something which is real?
Novels may not have graphs and statistics, they convince you the need to be
nice to one each other, talk to your kids/parent, and believe in yourself.
We all know these are things we should do, and if a book can make you act it out, the
book’s value is far beyond any fact.
The Kite Runner is one of those books.
