On My Shelf: The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini


On My Shelf


On My Shelf is a series to showcase some of the books that are sat on my shelves. Each Sunday I randomly pick a book from my shelves to show you. Some will be books that are on my TBR, others will be books I've read in the past but that deserve a little love.

This week's pick





On My Shelf: The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
The #1 New York Times bestselling debut novel that introduced Khaled Hosseini to millions of readers the world over.
 
The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father’s servant, caught in the tragic sweep of history, The Kite Runner transports readers to Afghanistan at a tense and crucial moment of change and destruction. A powerful story of friendship, it is also about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, an
d the possibility of redemption; and an exploration of the power of fathers over sons—their love, their sacrifices, their lies.
 
Since its publication in 2003 Kite Runner has become a beloved, one-of-a-kind classic of contemporary literature, touching millions of readers, and launching the career of one of America's most treasured writers.

  9. This book is the reason why I read everything Khaled Hosseini wrote. Granted, this was his first novel but it was amazing and his second book "A Thousand Splendid Suns" was equally amazing
