I am participating in the A-to-Z Challenge again this year. My theme is My Favorite Books. Most of the books I will be posting about, I have read more than once. After all, they are my favorites.
K is for The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.
This work of fiction, published in 2003, is the first novel by the Afghan-American author. It is a story of a father-son relationship that goes from the son’s younger years while in Afghanistan, through his adult years after immigrating to America. A pivotal element is the close friendship between two young boys, Hassan and Amir.
The book provides a historical perspective into the fall of the Afghanistan monarchy and how citizens were affected. This particular family immigrates to American and starts a new chapter of their life.
This book was so well written that when I was done reading it, I had to go back to double-check if it was a work of fiction. It is.
