The first of the defeated kites whirled out of control. They fell from the sky like shooting stars with brilliant, rippling tails, showering the neighbourhood.

Amir and Hassan grow up together in Kabul. Amir in the beautiful house his father built, filled with marble, gold, tapestries and mosaics; Hassan in the modest mud hut in the servants' quarters.
The two are inseparable, and when twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the local kite-fighting tournament, his loyal friend promises to help him. But neither boy can predict what will happen to Hassan that afternoon — as the kites soar over the city — and how it will change their lives forever.

    🚀Unputdownable

    Не знаю почему все в восторге от Хессейни, но вот конкретно эта книга прям готовый сценарий для съемок фильма в Боливуде. И слеза навернется, и устать от повествования успеешь. Только танцев нет, одна драма.

    When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.

    Because the past claws its way out.

    Lines had etched into his tanned face and creases framed his eyes, his mouth. I might as well have taken a knife and carved those lines myself.
