I know I’m about 20 years late to the party, but I finally got around to reading this and absolutely loved it. Kite Runner is a beautifully written story about friendship, betrayal, and redemption through a continuously trying time in Afghanistan’s history.

Very gripping and heart wrenching. Good pacing for a book that has so much happening in it and spans a couple of decades

Well told, fair share of sadness in the story. Raw yet compassionate and hopeful.
