**Rating: 4/5**

For most of us, its very hard to imagine how life is like in war torn Afghanistan or Iraq, despite the extensive coverage on news channels. In fact, I feel that excessive media attention has de-sensitized all of us in some sense. In this debut novel by Khaled Hosseini, the reader gets a glimpse of the transformation of Afghanistan from its glory days to its current state.

//The Kiterunner// is a heart warming story about two young boys. Hosseini weaves a touching tale of compassion, betrayal and courage through his characters. Though it is a fictional piece, the book feels strangely realistic. Highly recommended.
