From the fall of Afghanistan’s monarchy through the Soviet military intervention, the exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the rise of the Taliban regime, The Kite Runner will stun you with its simplicity and authenticity of the characters. Khaled Hosseini weaves the characters in this novel with such magical writing that you’ll feel as if Amir and Hassan were people that you knew a long time ago.

About the Author

Before turning into a full-time writer, Afghan-born American novelist Khaled Hosseini was a physician. It was Hosseini’s debut book The Kite Runner, which was set in Afghanistan and featured an Afghan as the protagonist, that brought him fame and urged him to retire from medicine to pursue writing. Apart from The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini has written three other books - A Thousand Splendid Suns (2007), And the Mountains Echoed (2013) and Sea Prayer (2018). Currently, he lives with his wife and two children in Northern California.

Wonderful

I bought this along with A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS.I am really impressed by this author and would suggest this book to all. It will surely have an impact on your mind. This book came in a good sealed packaging and the font size is really good, however I am not satisfied with the quality of pages. It is really thin. But the binding is good though.

The Kite Runner Review

This is a purchase I'll always treasure. It's a precious gift from a writer to his readers.

This book has stains of every emotion known to human race. There is a loud cry of hungry love that will haunt you throughout.

Unforgettable plot, novel leaves readers speechless...

Khaled Hosseini's writing style has the right quality and quantity of adhesive to hold the readers in the course of the novel...
The way he describes the characters and weaves the plot is extraordinary.
The best part about the writing style is that he doesn't describe an event directly but forces the readers to deduce it. The comparisons he give and the way he relates one part of the novel with the earlier and later parts is exceptional....
A must read and is worth the purchase.....

Superb book to understand Afghans

This book is a masterpiece and helps the readers to understand the psychology of Afghan people. I don't think this book can be written in any other better way. In fact this book is a mirror to humanity and looks like an autobiography of Khalid
