Traces the unlikely friendship of a wealthy Afghan youth and a servant's son, in a tale that spans the final days of Afghanistan's monarchy through the atrocities of the present day.

Publishers Description

The "New York Times" bestseller and international classic loved by millions of readers.
The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father's servant, "The Kite Runner" is a beautifully crafted novel set in a country that is in the process of being destroyed. It is about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption; and an exploration of the power of fathers over sons--their love, their sacrifices, their lies.
A sweeping story of family, love, and friendship told against the devastating backdrop of the history of Afghanistan over the last thirty years, "The Kite Runner "is an unusual and powerful novel that has become a beloved, one-of-a-kind classic.

Ki  Nov 17, 2008
Innocence...a child's life, each day a chance to improvise
Storybooks read to the illiterate with pieces revised
Hills to climb trees to climb, dads car to go to the bizarre in
Pomegranates aroma, a true friend to find yourself in
A pledge to eat dirt or not to define who you are or not
Hazara and Suni unaware of their world as children they sing
In the end, the world always wins. That's just the way of things

A larger Afghan world of traditions bent on stature
One up over one down One man determined to rupture
A divergence of advantages mixed upon the disadvantaged
Bound together by a family in secret genetic heritage
Brute upon hero as in David and Goliath
Innocence faces brutality in a Kite Runners undoing
In the end, the world always wins. That's just the way of things

Wonderful  Nov 16, 2008
I loved this book! A story of loyalty, love, guilt, shame and jealousy all with very credible characters. Shows the best and worst of people and did not have a corny ending. That is very important to me. I don't have time to read as much as I would like so to get hold of a gem like this was a real pleasure.
Fantastic  Nov 12, 2008
If there is a book that must be read, it is this, it is this, it is this...
powerful and moving  Nov 5, 2008
Wonderful book. The story is powerful and moving. The characters are vividly and realistically portrayed. You feel the pain of the hero's flaws. Hosseini's story allow you to vicariously experience life in pre- and post-war Afghanistan, as well as experience the culture shock of becoming an immigrant transplant to the US, including the subtleties of interactions among fellow transplants.

This is an immensely compelling read on so many levels, and it is one of the most enlightening books of fiction I have ever read.
Could Not Put it Down  Oct 30, 2008
This is such a well-told story, I was hooked the moment I started reading it. The story of Amir and Hassan threw multiple twists in this story that I never saw coming. It is so well-written. The backdrop of Afghanistan is extremely interesting especially to see it through the eyes of the characters that live there rather than the version of Afghanistan that we see on the news. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time!
