Bookish Thoughts

I love reading! I read books about anything, any time, any place.

The Kite Runner: Graphic Novel - Khaled Hosseini | Review

The Kite Runner: Graphic Novel - Khaled Hosseini, Fabio Celoni

This was my first experience of a graphic novel. I was at my local library this afternoon and saw this on the shelf, thought I'd give it a try and I wasn't disappointed! 


I haven't read the novel, so this is my first experience of the story. It was heartbreaking, political, thought provoking and upsetting all at the same time. The illustrations are just beautiful, it is put together in such a way that the more disturbing scenes are made even more poignant. I devoured this in an hour, I was hooked right from the start. I loved the ending too. 


I will definitely be picking up more graphic novels in the future. Do you have any graphic novel recommendations? I have my eye on Fables Vol 1 - anyone heard of or read these?
