For you, a thousand times over! ❤

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is a book full of emotions and sentiments . The way this book is written is very overwhelming. I guarantee everyone who reads this book would have felt the events that took place in the book.

The book is mainly based on discrimination, violence, sin and redemption, homeland, nationality and family ties.

This book by Hosseini tell us about the story of a young boy named Amir who lived in Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul. He had a best friend cum brother Hassan who is very helpful. The story of the book is fictional, but it is rooted in real political and historical events ranging from the last days of the Afghan monarchy in the 1970s to the post-Taliban near present.

One can tell that the kites play the major role in the book as the title itself suggests so. The main story of the book starts with the kite tournament itself. Amir and Hassan are best friends who grew up together and lived in Kabul. They did almost everything together and one of their favourite hobbies is kite running. One day there is a local kite-fighting tournament Amir is determined to win and with the help of Hassan he is even able to achieve his goal. The victory of the tournament comes with a high price though and in the end their moment of happiness isn’t only short lived but also comes to an abrupt end. What happens after the competition destroys their lifelong friendship and shakes the foundations of their trust, the course of their lives changing as they try to deal with the consequences of a single day. After this incident many events occured and left everyone shattered. Amir and Hassan has to face their own complications and guilt.

This is a really very impressive book on so many levels – the history, location, religion, social culture, character interaction and it’s ultimately dealing with human emotions of friendship and guilt. I would highly recommend reading this book. In fact, it's a must-read! 💕😍
