Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner seems to be in vogue these days. Critics adore it, fans can’t get enough of it, and its film adaptation is sure to keep people talking about it for a long time to come. This being the case, could it be that the novel just so happens to be one of those things that is popular for being popular?

Perhaps. But it doesn’t matter. As most anyone who has actually read the book will attest, The Kite Runner is nothing short of remarkable. Wrapped around some vivid prose, it is at once a love letter to a country besieged by conflict, a cautionary tale about the cruelty that children can inflict on one another, and an inspiring piece about coming of age, redemption and forgiveness. It is a truly touching story, one well deserving of the acclaim and attention that have been bestowed upon it by avid reader and critic alike.
