Amir, the son of a wealthy merchant, loves to fly kites and his servant’s son and trusted friend Hassan is his kite runner. One day, Hassan is brutally assaulted by a young boy Ali who swore to take revenge when Hassan protected him using his slingshot in an attempt to rescue Amir. Amir, however, did not go to help or call for help as he is too scared to intervene. He is guilty about this eventually Hassan is to leave Kabul for good with his father.
Years later Amir and his father move to California where he marries Soraya. Fifteen years later he decides to back to Afghanistan. The book reveals the friendship and loyalty that is not lost between all the cruelty that is surrounding the characters.

Lump in the throat

This is a well written amazing tale which includes deep emotions. The story starts from the protagonist's childhood and traces all the years until he becomes a man brave enough to execute his remorse.Moments in the story are touchy enough to feel the lump in the throat.

Also, you can feel the essence of Afghanistan' culture before the wars..

Awesome

I have read many books but this novel is really awesome. It is highly interesting, touching and above all, it is very honest. I like the way the writer describes the situations, scenes and interior thoughts. But most of all, i like the childhood part of novel. In many cases, i associate myself with Amir. I have many characteristics of him. And i am also a huge fond of kite flying.It was my childhood passion.So, this novel refreshed many my childhood memories. In crux, i like this novel and learn many things of life and also of Afghanistan. I give it 4.5 out of 5. MUST READ.

Life's truth!

With a backdrop of Taliban ruled Afganistan, the story is set up in Kabul and partly in America, of two little boys-one a royal Pashtun blood-Amir and the other a mere Hazara- Hassan.The story is of their lives, their friendship, separation, guilt, truths and secrets.The story goes to tell you how one coward decision darkens the future, how one lie erects boundaries, how distances crush relationships, how love never loses faith, how life becomes cheap, how killing a human being under the name of religion and God’s wish becomes passion, how one’s caste becomes one’s reason of death…how just one step towards the truth brings in courage and makes one a guilt free human being!
>It has honest expressions, simplicity and the words carry the fearless truth.
>The story reaches you; you can feel it pumping in your heart all the while.

>It is that kind of a book which will remain with you forever; no matter how heart-breaking it is, it will always be close to your heart.

>Every time you will keep down the book, for a break, you will feel the urge to pick it up again and reach the end; however, honestly at some places I felt the story should not unfold, felt that I don’t want to know what happens next, I don’t want to miss a beat again-all this because you become the part of the story. You feel the pain, the pinch and at the end, the hope too!

Beautiful.

Plot:The story revolves around two children in afghanistan,who are half brothers and are unaware of that fact.Their father is a rich man in afghanistan but post soviet invasion moves out to USA.Here the story continues ,however one of the child is left behind by his father to take care of house with the help of a servant.However things turn tragic and an incident in childhood haunts the main lead throughout his life.He tries to redeem himself by doing something unselfish for his half-brother.But things are more complicated than it may seem from far away in USA.Will he be able to redeem himself?

Comment:The author needs to be commended for the way he potrays characters according to their basic nature.The story is woven very elegantly and you can identify with characters.I will definitely vouch for this book.
