Product description

Review

A gripping read and a haunting story of love, loss and betrayal. Guaranteed to move even the hardest heart (Independent)

Shattering . devastating and inspiring (Observer)

Hosseini is a truly gifted teller of tales . he's not afraid to pull every string in your heart to make it sing (The Times)

Rings true with tenderness and truth (Daily Mail)

A devastating, masterful and painfully honest story of a life crippled by an act of childhood and cowardice and cruelty . It speaks the harrowing truth about the power of evil, personal and political, and intoxicates, like a high-flying kite, with the power of hope (Daily Telegraph)

Stunning and heartbreaking in its quiet intensity (Guardian)

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, honour, guilt, fear, redemption . It is so powerful that for a long time after, everything I read seemed bland (Isabel Allende)

The novel that made Afghanistan the talking-point of every book group (Guardian, 50 Books that Defined the Decade) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
