just discovered Khaled Hosseini's (author of Kite Runner) A Thousand Splendid Suns.
a third of the way through and its quite a good read, easy, quick, and engaging. Hosseini displays flashes of genius at times, and is only the 2nd author to able to induce tears from my eyes (Irene Hunt being the other). of course, maybe its cuz i'm not that well read, haha.
Cricket cannot live with the mistaken belief that people want to see big hits. People like to see goals, but no one is talking of moving the goalposts a metre wider either side. (Harsha Bhogle)
