Abstract:

In a divided country on the verge of war, two childhood friends, Amir and Hassan, are about to be torn apart forever. It's a glorious afternoon in Kabul and the skies are bursting with the exhilarating joy of a kite-fighting tournament. But in the aftermath of the day's victory, one boy's fearful act of betrayal will mark their lives forever and set in motion an epic quest for redemption. Now, after twenty years of living in America, Amir returns to a perilous Afghanistan under the Taliban's iron-fisted rule to face the secrets that still haunt him and take one last daring chance to set things right.

another world, another life

by 4js (WorldCat user published 2011-03-25) Very Good Permalink

It is a great book about love, loyalty,betray, and war. It is an interesting book because it takes two children's life as its subject. There are both funny and sad stories.
