The Number One Bestseller

Afghanistan, 1975: Twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the local kite-fighting tournament and his loyal friend Hassan promises to help him. But neither of the boys can foresee what will happen to Hassan that afternoon, an event that is to shatter their lives.

After the Russians invade and the family is forced to flee to America, Amir realises that one day he must return to Afghanistan under Taliban rule to find the one thing that his new world cannot grant him: redemption.

  • The Kite Runner

    It is an extraordinary story - and unfortunately close to non-fiction. I intend to read it again shortly. These damned Muslim tyrannies with their awful mumbo-jumbo in a perverted form of an otherwise honourable religion are a threat to us all. I also recently read "Not Without My Daughter" by the unfortunate and most excellent lady Betty Mahmoody.
