Amir is the son of a wealthy Kabul merchant, a member of the ruling caste of Pashtuns. Hassan, his servant and constant companion, is a Hazara, a despised and impoverished caste. Their uncommon bond is torn by Amir’s choice to abandon his friend amidst the increasing ethnic, religious, and political tensions of the dying years of the Afghan monarchy, wrenching them far apart.

In this book there is proper description how native of Afghan suffered during the rule of Taliban. Women’s were not allowed to work, even they were widow. People lost their home, children lost their parents. They didn’t suffer physically because of starvation, cruelty but mentally as well.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is one of the most heartbreaking books I have ever read. I re-read it a few days back and I was pained as much as I was when I read it for the first time.

One of very few books that made me actually tear up.
Nice paper quality and everything.
But seriously, you need to have some tissues around if you’re planning to start this.
