      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    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...

    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.
