Kite Runner

4.4/5

1970s Afghanistan: 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.

“And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.”

Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
