Kite Runner By Khaled Hosseini

This is an unforgettable story that stays with you for years . In this novel you experience love, guilt, and fear. This story concerns itself about a relationship between fathers, and sons. This novel takes place in Afghanistan, and deals with their culture too.

We find ourselves being acquainted with Amir, who has a close friendship with Hassan the son of his Father's servant. This is a novel of life in a beautiful country torn apart. This novel depicts Afghanistan about 30 years ago.

This is a book that appeals to me, because you can learn about a new culture that has been through many hard times, and many times long forgotten. It is interesting to note, the author Khaled Hosseini is the only Afghan author writing in English.

Thanks for taking the time to reading the blog "Kite Runner". I am now finishing a book about Afghanistan called, "Come Back to Afghanistan" a California Teen's Story. It is an excellent book.
