    The book is a story of two young Afghan boys, Amir and Hassan. it is set during the time when the Taliban was rising and the Soviet Union was attacking Afghanistan. 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.

    A Story of Purpose, Family, Terror and Humanity

    Khaled Hosseini has written this masterpiece with a lot of groundwork. The Kite Runner tells the story of life in Taliban ruled Afghanistan after the Soviet Invasion. The characters can be associated with any real life persons living in Afghanistan who had migrated to somewhere else due to adversity.
    Two kids start out as friends, and their life is separated by a simple lie and a division in the family. Truth unfolds after time, and people come to realize that their notion of events isn't al...

    One Star

    The book is awesome! I suggest you to read it, really. I'd give 5/5 to The Kite Runner but this review is for the PRODUCT QUALITY. First of, it wasn't packed in a plastic cover. Second, the book cover looked like it was soggy a day ago and had been dried ( you get the picture, right?). Also, the print quality isn't too good. I have never received such a low grade product before so you might want to select another seller. So, get the book for sure, but from another seller.

    Brilliant

    The kite runner is a phenomenal book, readers may have their own perspective on the book but one can't deny it is well written especially the first half where a major chunk is devoted solely to character development and well developed they are!! The climax is up for debate some may love it, some may find a little too cliche, but Khaled wrap it well leaving you satisfied in the end. A good read.
