The #1 New York Times bestselling novel beloved by millions of readers the world over.

“A vivid and engaging story that reminds us how long his people [of Afghanistan] have been struggling to triumph over the forces of violence—forces that continue to threaten them even today." –New York Times Book Review
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.

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.

Hesitant suggested read turn great. A co-worker who has seen me reading book after book for 7 years suggested this book, highly. . Every week he would ask if i had red the Kite Runner yet. I finally started to read it one late Saturday afternoon, i could not put it down. I was crying i was mad and relieved . Its my turn now. I highly recommend this book, please read it

Beautiful Parallels. 4.5 Amir’s character arc and inner monologue are truly something to behold. Beautifully written and an excellent character.

If I could give it six stars, I would.. This will be one of my all-time favorite books. A Thousand Splendid Suns is great too…not sure which I enjoyed more. Read them both!

Great!. Just finished it. It was great! The unbiased description of a foreign culture from the eyes of a child is perfect. The plot is coherent and just perfect. Surely, this novel will stand the test of time.

Heart wrenching story of resilience. Can’t recommend this book enough. It’s a book which will touch every heart string

Top ten!. Beautiful story that brought me to tears more that once. A must read.

The Kite Runner. This was an excellent story that gripped me from the first sentence to the last word. I felt the joy, pain and Helplessness of Amir and Hassen. I laughed, I cried, I even yelled in frustration at the main character. I couldn't put the book down, and I recommend that everyone read this book. Excellent book!!!

Highly recommended. There are only a certain handful of books that can get me into tears and get me so involved with the book and this is definitely one of them. I can't put it down

Heart-rending. Stayed up all night to Finnish reading this. A story that tears the reader’s heart in to pieces. It is very frustrating to think millions in Afghanistan are facing such inhumane situations.

👏👏👏👏👏. Very sad but a great book.

A+. Magnificent

The kite runner/بادبادك باز. It's one of the best books that I have ever read and I cried for Hassan our whole family read it we cried one by one I am hazara too but till now hazaras situation is the same like past , every child of hazara saw ,listened and passed it in Afghanistan,every one should read it, it's really perfect and gulorious dear Khalid.

Innocence Betrayed. Innocence, it seems, cannot be allowed to thrive anywhere in the world. It gets smothered under the weight of war, pride, hate, ignorance, and lies. Even the youngest are guilty of snuffing out the brightest dreams of some through unspeakable acts. The whole story will break your heart and at the same time light an ember of hope for something better. The promise of a country is also not allowed to materialize in this novel. The slow decay of potential is brought about by a hatred fueled caste system, religious infighting, and the moral less management of inept leaders. Through the dissolution of a country we see the cascading dissolution of generations of connectivity, dreams, and culture. For all of the loss we do see hope spring again. Redemption and the truth are the soil and water that nourish that sapling of tomorrow. As heavy as the events of this book are, that little nugget of reclamation is enough to balance almost all the pain and grief. It’s a reminder of who we are to each other and the duty to uplift humanity, that we have to one another.

Yeesh. I mean this book was just amazing. Harrowing, but amazing

Wonderful book. Absolutely loved it.

My favourtie novel. This is one of my best novel. Te character and the incidents of this novel are expressed in a fabulous way. I waited for more than 6 months to buy this book and study as there were no stock available. An when i got this book i was overwhelmed to get my favourate novel.

The Kite Runner. A classic for me!

Kite Runner. Fantastic book

The Kite Runner. Beautiful, captivating, heartbreaking story, loved the way it was written and how you can even feel the pain of each character... It was lovely!!!

A few mistakes but a great book. 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.

Beautiful book. Remind me how lucky I am to be American.

Gripping!. The build up was slow in the beginning as you get to know the characters but OH MY GOD what a twist! A really great read!

The Kite Runner. Wow! A student requested I read this book, as it is a current favorite. I LOVED IT! I couldn’t put it down. Excellent storytelling. Well written. A glimpse of Western Asian (Iranian/Afghan) Strongly recommended

TKR. I read this book for a school assignment but I’m glad they assigned it. Every little detail of Amir’s words stuck with me. I found myself crying in many parts of the book, but I’m glad I did. If I would to recommend any book that would stick with you, it would be this one.

Heartbreak. I cried so hard from the beginning to the end. It was so good that I read it all in one day. Absolutely amazing. My heart hurts and I still can’t stop crying.

The kite runner. Love it.

One of the new classics. One of the best books of all time for me. Whimsical, relatable, thought provoking with beautiful prose. I have read it several times and I never re-read books.

Still Amazing!!. Read this book years ago!!! Forgot how much I loved it! I cried so many times I lost count!! Now I’m off to read Thousand Splendid Suns!!!

Good read. Good read, had a few jaw dropping moments. I enjoyed it .

Touching story. 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.

Deeply compelling. This is a wonderful book. Beautifully written compelling story. So glad I found it!

Fantastic. I loved this book. Easy to read, captivating story. Couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed how he described Afganistán also with all of the beautiful things about this country this is not forgotten

10 stars. I cried from start to finish. What an amazing story.

Pretty good but i had to read it for English so 1 start off. Four stars

The Kite Runner, so excellent. This book was thought provoking. It shared insight into life, relationships, loyalties and hardships. The author described the love of friends so well including insecurities, peer pressure, bullying and choices we make that can affect us throughout a lifetime. Each crossroad we choose makes us who we are despite regrets and misgivings. A chance to right wrongs is rare but one we all wish we could have. The Kite Runner is well worth the time and emotion evoked while reading it.

One of the greatest novels I’ve ever read. Had to read this book for school and my god, did it surpass all my expectations. All at once, a fascinating and depth filled character study and a gut wrenching tale of a country destroyed by war. This book is heartbreaking, thought provoking, frustrating, but overwhelmingly powerful all the way through. Just….wow. I have so much I can say about this book. I just can’t believe how good this is.

Great book!. I'd seen the movie before, but the book was even better than expected.

The best!. This book explains emotions that I never knew existed. From beginning to end you are captured and taken to his world. 10/10 would definitely recommend reading.

2nd times the charm. Haven’t read this book since highschool and it’s even more powerful and heartwarming than I remember. Thoroughly enjoyed!!

Best Book. Best book I’ve ever read. This was such a touching story with twist and turns. Nothing could beat this story.

Wonderful Read!. I loved this book! The struggles of these young men is heartbreaking yet they learn to make the best of it❤️

Good book, but not fantastic. I loved this book, it taught me a lot about the wars in Afghanistan through a great story

Kite Runner. This book is amazing.
