kite runner is a tragic story - not v meaty - has had great reviews. LIked it better than 1000 Splendid Suns (same author)

don't know the other books sorry

Interpretation of Murder is a bit murder detective lite. I loved it but then my idea of a relax is to read Agatha Christie, don't know the others, but have heard Kite Runner is a weepy.

in the same vein but better than kite runner is

A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry

I loved the Kite Runner. It is a bit of a weepy but also uplifting (if you see what I mean). It is now one of my all time favourite books.

Haven't read the others I'm afraid.

Oooh, im not really up for weepy - the last book i read touched on the war in Afghanistan and it made me angry. Maybe save that one for another time.

Maybe some murder detective lite is about right for now.

The Kite Runner is excellent, but I think Interpretation of Murder will suit you better - haven't read the other book.

The Kite Runner is v good - but not at all enjoyable.

I was very disappointed by Interpretation Of Murder.

Never heard of the third.
