★ Review ★

Two friends ( Amir & Hasan) grew up in Afghanistan and used to popular with kite flying with intense running. They fed breast milk from the same mother. Both of their father were quite good friends back then. That’s way they are more than friend, like half-brother. They grew up together and everything running quite evenly in their childhood.

Midway through the story I hated main character of this story (Amir) because he cowardly betrayed his friend Hasan, even though Hasan never ever give it back. After a terrible incident they were separated, Amir left the country with his father and flew toward USA. He grown up there and married with a beautiful girl named Soraya, even though he couldn’t became a father due to their ‘Unknown infertility’.

Amir eventually became a popular writer & published some best-selling books. After 25 years, death of his father because of cancer, he came back to find his best friend Hasan and miraculously reveled some unknown truth. He found him. But found him & his family in a deadly manner. They were the victim’s of Taliban violence. But, After few day he found a sexually abused boy, who is the only son of Hasan’s, in an Orphanage.

From then, he dreamed about to take him under his shoulder, returned back to the USA and joined with his own family. During this came back journey towards USA, Amir faced lot of troubles and found nostalgic memory
