The story is an excellent and so far it is a good translation.

Format: Paperback
The reviews of The Kite Runner when it came out made me think I wouldn't like the book so I deliberately passed on it until now. I recently had the opportunity to read Khaled Hosseini's stunning second novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns, and realized that I had made a mistake by skipping The Kite Runner.

Amir grows up in a male-dominated kind of Eden in his wealthy father's beautiful home in Kabul. His doting father loves to give him presents. There are two servants Ali and his son, Hassan, who make life pleasant. Amir and Hassan also enjoy a close friendship whose foundation is Hassan's tremendous loyalty. But there are cracks in Eden. Amir knows that his father doesn't really approve of him: Amir is a coward while his Baba is as brave as a lion. Amir's mother died in childbirth so there's little nurturing except from Baba's friend and business partner, Rahim Khan. Ali's wife and Hassan's mother, Sanaubar, ran off with a clan of traveling singers and dancers a week after Hassan was born. Both boys shared a wet nurse which helped make them feel closer. Ali and Hassan are Shi'a Muslims and ethnic Hazaras, two qualities that make them be viewed as worthy of only being servants by the powerful Pashtuns. To further emphasize their differences, Ali is crippled and Hassan has a hare lip. Amir loves books, but uses his learning to humble Hassan.

But Amir thinks things are going well when his father hints that he thinks Amir can win the annual kite fighting festival, something his father did as a boy. Perhaps if Amir can win, his father will approve of him. With the talented help of Hassan, the greatest kite runner (helpful in getting kites into the sky and running down those that have but cut off from their string), Amir has high hopes.

Este es un libro que todo el mundo deberia leer. Es muy conmovedor y enseña muy buenas lecciones de vida. La historia tiene partes felices y partes muy tristes y duras. Al terminar de leer este libro sientes como a veces tomamos la vida "for granted". Hermosa historia que definitivamente tocara los corazones de todo aquellos que la lean!!

Disfruté mucho éste libro. Fue interesante leer una novela en donde mucho sucede en otro país. Aunque algunas partes del libro pueden parecer un poco imposibles, me parece que son dramáticas y al final uno termina disfrutando el libro. La prosa es sencilla y bien escrita. El autor tiene buen estilo, y los diálogos son buenos. Recomendable, sin duda alguna de mi parte.
