The Kite Runner Khaled Hosseini read online review & book description:

The #1 New York Times bestselling debut novel that introduced Khaled Hosseini to millions of readers the world over.
The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father’s servant, caught in the tragic sweep of history, The Kite Runner transports readers to Afghanistan at a tense and crucial moment of change and destruction. A powerful story of friendship, it is also 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.
Since its publication in 2003 Kite Runner has become a beloved, one-of-a-kind classic of contemporary literature, touching millions of readers, and launching the career of one of America's most treasured writers.

    By JaysCyn
    A must read. I felt every emotion in this book and was transported right there with the main character. Thank you for all the thought that must have went into this story. The ending is so precious. I’m buying the hard copy so I can hold it when I read it again.
  • Fantastic

  • A few mistakes but a great book

    By fnujalal
    I've never been a book reader or a person that writes reviews on books but this one is special. I was suggested by a friend to read this book and oh boy I am grateful for the suggestion. I am an Afghan and grew up in Afghanistan. I knew most of the settings used in this book which made really nostalgic in a way. One the things that noticed about the book that sort of bothered me was the fact that Amir and Baba were both pashtuns but in the book they are always conversing in Farsi other than I loved the book.
