Today, in an all new session of THE READING ROOM, we are going to review “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini
“It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime.”
Khaled Hosseini’s #1 New York Times Bestselling Debut
Amir is the son of a wealthy Kabul merchant, a member of the ruling caste of Pashums. Hassan, his servant and constant companion, is a Hazara, a despised and impoverished caste. Their uncommon bond is torn by Amir’s choice to abandon his friend amidst the increasing ethnic, religious, and political tensions of the dying years of the Afghan monarchy, wrenching them far apart. But so strong is the bond between the two boys that Amir Journeys back to a distant world, to try to right past wrongs against the only true friend he ever had.
The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father’s servant, The Kite Runner is a beautifully crafted novel set in a country that is in the process of being destroyed. It is 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.
A sweeping story of family, love, and friendship told against the devastating backdrop of the history of Afghanistan over the last thirty years, The Kite Runner is an unusual and powerful novel that has become a beloved, one-of-a-kind classic
The author has represented a very beautiful and serene landscape of Afghanistan, being filled with Cherry trees and children flying kites.
This novel is way too emotional and every time I read, I cry in the same way. Khaled Hosseini has created magic in this tale. His writing is way too flawless and wonderful. No wonder why Khaled Hosseini is one of the greatest authors in the world of his times. This book proves it!
