The 10th anniversary edition of the New York Times bestseller and international classic loved by millions of readers.

The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father's servant, The Kite Runner is a beautifully crafted novel set in a country that is in the process of being destroyed. It is about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption; and an exploration of the power of fathers over sons—their love, their sacrifices, their lies.

A sweeping story of family, love, and friendship told against the devastating backdrop of the history of Afghanistan over the last thirty years, The Kite Runner is an unusual and powerful novel that has become a beloved, one-of-a-kind classic.

Notă biografică

With more than ten million copies sold in the United States of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, and more than thirty-eight million copies sold worldwide in more than seventy countries, Khaled Hosseini is one of most widely read and beloved novelists in the entire world. The Kite Runner spent 103 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, and A Thousand Splendid Suns debuted as a #1 New York Times bestseller, remaining in the #1 spot for fifteen weeks, and spending nearly an entire year on the bestseller list. Hosseini is a Goodwill Envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the UN Refugee Agency, and the founder of The Khaled Hosseini Foundation, a nonprofit which provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.


In 2007, The Kite Runner was made into an Academy Award-nominated film by director Marc Forster, which grossed over $15 million at the US Box Office. This is the first time that the novel has been adapted for the stage.


Hosseini's ability to reach the core of experiences of love and loss places him in the company of such fine chroniclers of the new America as Chang-rae Lee. The Kite Runner is a first novel of unusual generosity, honesty and compassion.
A devastating, masterful and painfully honest story ... It is a novel of great hidden intricacy and wisdom, like a timeless Eastern tale. It speaks the most harrowing truth about the power of evil
The shattering first novel by Khaled Hosseini ... a rich and soul-searching narrative ... a sharp, unforgettable taste of the trauma and tumult experienced by Afghanis as their country buckled
But the play is a phenomenally powerful piece of theatre which for many people will portray Afghanistan in a totally new light
An accomplished adaptation by Matthew Spangler ... This show, a European premiere, stands shoulder to shoulder with the best work in the regions and judging by the thronging auditorium ... [they have] a hit on [their] hands that deserves to travel the country beyond its scheduled stops of Brighton and Liverpool
Matthew Spangler's dramatisation, worked on with Hosseini's help and blessing, rightly seizes on the potent personal story at the heart of the novel: the tale of two boys, Amir and his father's servant Hassan, brought up as near brothers in the same house. The staging traces their story simply and vivaciously
An enthralling tale beautifully told, at once topical and emotionally resonant
Matthew Spangler's script . . . preserves Hosseini's sensitive portrait of a friendship marred by tribalism and betrayal.
Khaled Hosseini's 2003 novel [has] been transformed into a seriously good piece of storytelling theatre that takes flight just as the onstage kites do . . . This stage adaptation . . . is that rare and magnificent thing: a real sleeper hit . . . it feels in the tradition of War horse and could well be the best page-to-stage show since then . . . it has a similar integrity that speaks of a real commitment by its creative team to telling this story with an unforced economy that is also full of emotional weight. Matthew Spangler's adaptation offers a gripping portrait of two young lives that become inextricably linked.
The touching story of the novel is carried on stage by the turbulent ups and downs, echoing the ducking and diving of a fighting kite that will come up winning.
Adaptor Matthew Spangler has admirably condensed Hosseini's epic novel . . . there is no sense of constriction . . . Spangler skilfully balances the scenes in Asia with those of the Afghan refugees seeking to maintain their dignity and culture in the West.
