This week’s book recommendation is The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. While it’s been a long time since I’ve read this, the emotions I felt while reading the book have managed to stay with me. A touching, heartfelt story about two young boys set in Afghanistan.

Intrigued?

The Kite Runner of Khaled Hosseini’s deeply moving fiction debut is an illiterate Afghan boy with an uncanny instinct for predicting exactly where a downed kite will land.

Growing up in the city of Kabul in the early 1970s, Hassan was narrator Amir’s closest friend even though the loyal 11-year-old with “a face like a Chinese doll” was the son of Amir’s father’s servant and a member of Afghanistan’s despised Hazara minority.

But in 1975, on the day of Kabul’s annual kite-fighting tournament, something unspeakable happened between the two boys.
