Going back to something is harder than you think.

It is such a big world, something is always happening somewhere.

عمال اقع واقوم
انفض في الهدوم
وامشي خطوة كمان
القى الطريق يبان
مش زي ما كان زمان
بالعكس اسهل كتير..

The kite runner

There is a way to be good again.

This novel is a very good one, I liked it very much.
It talks about the good and the bad in a strong comparison and at their being very close to each other. It is not the absolute bad, but in the course of life really small mistakes may ruin the whole thing.

Once Amir felt coward and didn't defend hassan and this is how everything changed in life, this reminds me of the movie derailed. When it is very hard to pay for your mistakes. Amir knew very late that Hassan was his brother, and hassan never knew, and this was a single mistake of the father, that he tried to pay it back. The father was always brave and strong, but a single mistake ruined it all.

The story ends at Amir trying to pay back, but after his soul has been torn for his entire life, and after everything was just reminding him of the bad memory.

Something very good about the story, that I got from it a good idea about the writer's country afghanistan, I felt how he is trying to pour his own memories, but without getting you bored, may be because I am seeing people of that community I was keen about that details.

I knew about taliban, and I saw how the religion's decision for adulterers, and how they should be killed that way if they are married, it is a some minutes mistake again, but this is how life goes.

I heard that the writer wrote another novel, but with my experience with paulo coelho I guess I will be satisfied with that very good piece and I will try another classical piece, guess it is the turn of Gabriel Marques. Let's see.

To my wife and family. I asked Lorraine to believe in me, and she has always been there for me. She has been my emotional support throughout the entire process. She, JT, Phoebe and the rest of the Wong clan have been a constant source of inspiration.
