    DescriptionAfghanistan, 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.

    Felix Li The is a tale of friendship, of betrayal, of tragedy. It is a fantastic, gripping read that the author masterfully drags you through a range of emotions. It really takes you into the world of the protagonist, allowing you to become fully engrossed. I especially enjoyed how the book was set in a historical background, with the characters so well developed and so true to life, with many character flaws, yet it is in that way that we can connect somewhat with those in the story.

    I had quite high expectations of the book, having heard about it many times before, and having read A Thousand Splendid Suns by the same author, which is one of the best books I've ever read. Although I did thoroughly enjoy it, I still maintain Suns is a better book, it touched me in ways that this book didn't. by Felix Li
