Problems downloading; nothing to read; and the best part - Barnes & Noble customer service, apparently overseas, is HORRIBLE!!! All I got were 7 pages and can't get beyond the fourth page but they are insisting that I downloaded it and they can't refund me!

I didn't really know much about the story before and I wish I had because it was really disturbing and sad at parts but in the end the main character's redeeming choice to save someone unlike he did in his past made it a worthwhile read. If you do not want to read the novel which progresses very slowly try the graphic novel it was great.

Khaled Hosseini’s novel takes place in Kabul, Afghanistan in 1963. The main character is Amir, who is just 12 years old in the beginning of the novel. His father, who he calls Baba had lost his wife while giving birth to Amir. They are a wealthy and well know family everyone in the town worships. Baba has a life time friend who is a Hazara, meaning he is different and acts as a servant to the family. The servant has a younger son named Hassen who becomes life long best friends with Amir; the two were inseparable. Amir would read to Hassen stories he had written, teaching him words along the way. Every year all of the children in the town gather for a kite flying tournament, they all make kites and slice each other's strings- the last one in the air wins. Hassen and Amir look forward to it annually, Hassen being the kite runner. Once the kites are cut the children run to pick them up, although Hassen had a secret talent of being able to tell where the kite was going to land rather than chasing along with it with the rest of the kids. Once Amir’s kite was cut Hassen took off to go retrieve it, he was missing for hours. When Amir finally went to look for him Hassen was being raped by three scary boys that harass Amir and Hassen all the time. Amir did not do anything to help.. Rather regretting it once Hassen and his father moved away after it took place. 15 years pass with this event still haunting him until a sickness of Hassen’s father brings to see Hassen again. Throughout the novel Amir battles for his father’s heart. The two of them have never gotten along and his father does not approve of him because he is nothing like his son. This book brought a lot of mixed emotions, through the drama and sadness the characters were living through. The author did a great job at explaining what it was like to live in Afghanistan during this time period and how everyone was treated. I would recommend this book to anyone, it was an exciting yet sad book that told the story of a sad boy who loses everything trying to please his father.

If sodomy and innocence were coupled in a story, this would be the one to read. However, this poorly written book has a very loose plot with a very poorly written narrative. I would not recommend this book!!!!!
