7 Reasons You Should Read "the Kite Runner" Today ...


“The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini tells the powerful and touching story of Amir as he transforms from child to adult during the transition of the Afghanistan government from monarchy to revolution. This vivid and rich story is unforgettable. I enjoyed both the book and the movie because of how engaging and moving the plot is. “The Kite Runner” is a New York Times Bestseller that I highly recommend you start reading.

1. Culturally Rich

One thing I admire about Khaled Hosseini’s work in both “The Kite Runner” and his other novel “A Thousand Splendid Suns” is the cultural accuracy of the story. I don’t know much about the daily life in Afghanistan, especially that from 30 years ago, nonetheless, Hosseini paints a remarkable picture of what the country was and is now like. Critic Houston Chronicle said, “Hosseini brings his native country to life with great sensitivity. [He] richly describes the Afghan customs and traditions that tug on the immigrants as they mourn the loss of their country and struggle to build an American life.”
