Reviews

Hosseini's ability to reach the core of experiences of love and loss places him in the company of such fine chroniclers of the new America as Chang-rae Lee. The Kite Runner is a first novel of unusual generosity, honesty and compassion * Independent * The shattering first novel by Khaled Hosseini ... A rich and soul-searching narrative ... A sharp, unforgettable taste of the trauma and tumult experienced by Afghanis as their country buckled * Observer * A devastating, masterful and painfully honest story ... It is a novel of great hidden intricacy and wisdom, like a timeless Eastern tale. It speaks the most harrowing truth about the power of evil * Daily Telegraph * Unforgettable ... Extraordinary. It is so powerful that for a long time after everything I read seemed bland * Isabel Allende *
