The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini pdf free download.
The 10th anniversary edition of the New York Times bestseller and international classic loved by millions of readers.
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.
In Kabul in the early 1970s, 12-year-old Amir is seeking to win the approval of his rich merchant father by winning an annual “kite-fighting” contest with his best friend, Amir. What follows exposes the social and cultural gulf between the two friends in a way which will deeply mark their lives. Set against a sequence of momentous upheavals in Afghanistan (the fall of the monarchy, the Russian invasion, the rise of the Taliban) and moving between there and periods of exile in the United States, Hosseini’s novel intriguingly combines an ambitious narrative purview with a convincingly detailed portrayal of particular lives and fortunes. Like his protagonists, the author was himself born in Afghanistan and became a political exile in the USA in 1980. This bi-location lends a fascinating double perspective to a more than promising novel. –Mark Wahl
