“I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to The Kite Runner club and thank you for the support and encouragement that you have given me over the last four years. In many ways, the success of The Kite
Runner is an unlikely story. It is populated by characters who live in a distant and, to many in the west, enigmatic country. It is often dark and brutal. Its central character, Amir, is weak, and his behavior is often infuriating. It was published in mid 2003 without much fanfare without the benefit of a huge marketing plan. However, this book has connected now with millions of people around the world. To me, that is a testament to the power of the word-of-mouth phenomenon. From very early on, the response among readers to The Kite Runner was intense and passionate. A grassroots-based, groundswell of support among readers like you kept building over the span of a year or more. Until one day in late 2004, while flying across the country, I saw the passenger next to me reach into her bag and fetch a copy of The Kite Runner. The success of this book is also testament to the ability of fiction to connect people of differing religions, cultures, languages, and nationalities. Regardless of our background, we identify with experiences that are universally human. We identify with Amir’s guilt, his self-loathing, his desire to transcend his own weak nature. Friendship, loss, guilt, forgiveness, atonement are not Afghan experiences but human ones, and fiction is uniquely able to tap into what is common in us all.

I want to thank you for reading The Kite Runner, and for communicating to me over the years what this story means to you. When I set out to write this book, I never imagined that it would be published, let alone that I would receive such warm and kind letters from Paris, Tel-Aviv, Cairo, Rio, Kabul. As a writer, I could not possibly ask for more. I can never thank you enough.
Yours,
Khaled Hosseini”

About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.

    “Hello, I am an Armenian who was born in Iran and currently I am an American Citizen. Like many Americans I am proud to be an American, but I cherish and honor my past and my background. The Kite Runner was introduced to me by my causin. It took me a while to finally decide and read the book. Once I started I couldn’t stop. I related to the story, I cried with it, and in my head I saw every scene of the story. The author did a fantastic job of explaining the emotions of the characters and the suppression of the emotions . I loved the book and I have recommended it to many people. The story also reminded me of a long lost freind of mine who was an Afgan girl from a vey afluent family.”

    An epic tale of fathers and sons, of friendship and betrayal, that takes us from the final days of Afghanistan’s monarchy to the atrocities of the present. Isabel Allende: “A wonderful work… This is one of those unforgettable stories that stay with you for years. All the great themes of literature and of life are the fabric of this extraordinary novel: love, honor, guilt, fear redemption… It is so powerful that for a long time everything I read after seemed bland.”

    “Hey, my name is Hassan Sarker. I’m currently a senior at highschool, living in New York City. I’ve recently read Kite Runner and, oh my, was I blown away! It left many marks within me; leaving me both happy and sad, growing and regretful, and many more things. What more can I say? I am in love with this book.”

    “The kite runner was a very inspiring book. I could not put it down as i started reading it, it made my entire family cry including myself. This is one of the greatest books i have read in a while, and the author is phenomenal!”

    “My name is Charlie. We had to read KIte Runner as one of our novels for my world literature class. At first
    I was reluctant to read it, but as i bean reading, i realized how much of an amazing story this was. I found out what the horrors of the Taliban were really like. I used to despise reading but this novel has opened up my eyes to all the ups and the downs that literature has to offer.”

    “to our group its a big thing i was born and raised in afghanistan i also had to leave my family and friends during the russian invasion. It was a big change in my life during this time. Im excited to see how this movie plays out as i am a big fan of the novel!”

    “The Kite Runner was a well written book. And the characters and the setting seem so realistic but even though it was fiction. This book was very emotional and very captivating to me. I just have to say that this is the coolest book i have read so far. And i’m looking to the movie coming out.”

    Khaled Hosseini’s stunning debut novel The Kite Runner follows a young boy, Amir, as he faces the challenges that confront him on the path to manhood, testing friendships, finding love, cheating death, accepting faults, and gaining understanding. Living in Afghanistan in the 1960s, Amir enjoys a life of privilege that is shaped by his brotherly friendship with Hassan, his servant’s son. Amir lives in constant want of his father’s attention, feeling that he is a failure in his father’s eyes. Hassan, on the other hand, seems to be able to do no wrong. Their friendship is a complex tapestry of love, loss, privilege, and shame.

    Striving to be the son his father always wanted, Amir takes on the weight of living up to unrealistic expectations and places the fate of his relationship with his father on the outcome of a kite running tournament, a popular challenge in which participants must cut down the kites of others with their own kite. Amir wins the tournament. Yet just as he begins to feel that all will be right in the world, a tragedy occurs with his friend Hassan in a back alley on the very streets where the boys once played. This moment marks a turning point in Amir’s life, one whose memory he seeks to bury by moving to America. There he realizes his dream of becoming a writer and marries for love but the memory of that fateful day will prove too strong to forget. Eventually it draws Amir back to Afghanistan to right the wrongs that began that day in the alley and continued in the days, months, and years that followed.
