Books like Kite Runner?

I read Kite Runner finally! And I am currently reading Thousand Splendid Suns. I also read Handmaid's tale, Nefertiti, Heretic Queen and Cleopatra's daughter. So now you get the gist of what type of stories I'm looking for, something with twist and turns with turmoil following someone's life. Any suggestions?
