The Kite Runner is a novel that was written by Afghan-American author Khaled Hosseini and published in 2003. The Kite Runner's back cover synopsis reads as follows:
"'This powerful first novel... tells a story of fierce cruelty and fierce yet redeeming love. Both transform the life of Amir, Khaled Hosseini's privileged young narrator, who comes of age during the last peaceful days of the monarchy, just before his country's revolution and its invasion by Russian forces. But political events, even as dramatic as the ones that are presented in The Kite Runner, are only a part of this story. In The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini gives us a vivid and engaging story that reminds us how long his people have been struggling to triumph over the forces of violence - forces that continue to threaten them even today.' - The New York Times Book Review"
