The Kite Runner….a very famous novel, so got one to read. 

Interesting novel..my 2nd book of the author.

It’s a heartbreaking saga of father-son relationship, friendship and betrayal, the relation of the boys Amir & Hassan in their younger days, the kite competition and winning it but that day turns out to be a never forgetful day. A turn of event that shatters their lives. The family is forced to flee to America, but no one knows one day Amir must return to Afghanistan under Taliban rule to find the one thing that his new world cannot grant him: redemption.

Line from the book-

“When you kill a man, you steal a life,” Baba said. “You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of  a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness. Do you see?”
