'Unforgettable ... extraordinary. It is so powerful that for a long time after everything I read seemed bland' - Isabel Allende

Afghanistan, 1975: Twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the local kite-fighting tournament and his loyal friend Hassan promises to help him. But neither of the boys can foresee what will happen to Hassan that afternoon, an event that is to shatter their lives.

After the Russians invade and the family is forced to flee to America, Amir realises that one day he must return to Afghanistan under Taliban rule to find the one thing that his new world cannot grant him: redemption.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Hosseini's ability to reach the core of experiences of love and loss places him in the company of such fine chroniclers of the new America as Chang-rae Lee. The Kite Runner is a first novel of unusual generosity, honesty and compassion' - Independent 

'The shattering first novel by Khaled Hosseini... a rich and soul-searching narrative ... a sharp, unforgettable taste of the trauma and tumult experienced by Afghanis as their country buckled' - The Observer

'A devastating, masterful and painfully honest story ... it is a novel of great hidden intricacy and wisdom, like a timeless Eastern tale. It speaks the most harrowing truth about the power of evil' - The Daily Telegraph 

'Unforgettable ... extraordinary. It is so powerful that for a long time after everything I read seemed bland' - Isabel Allende

“Powerful”

Set in Afghanistan during a turbulent period of its history, this (like A Thousand Splendid Suns) painted a very vivid picture of a country about which I know very little - it was both interesting and shocking. The... More

“Perfection”

I would highly recommend this book. Although fictional there are enough parallels between the protagonist's life and the author's to wonder if it's all made up. Hosseini raises important awareness of... More
