LoveReading View on The Kite Runner : The Graphic Novel

A graphic novel adaption of the award-winning, internationally bestselling The Kite Runner.

 

The Kite Runner was voted 2nd in the Books of the Decade by Lovereading readers.

 

Voted as the Penguin/Orange Reading Group Book of the Year 2006 and 2007.

 

This book seemed to come out of nowhere.  It was the first Afghan novel to be written in English and it became a word-of-mouth bestseller in no time at all.  Telling a tragic story of childhood jealousy and fear, it covers a bitter part of Afghan history in a painful tale that truly pulls at the heartstrings.  A brilliant book.

 

Richard Charkin, Executive Director of Publisher Bloomsbury, said:

“We’re delighted that The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini has been selected by Lovereading as the number two title of the last Decade. We’re so pleased it continues to resonate with today’s readers and hope it will continue to do so for many decades to come.”

The Kite Runner : The Graphic Novel Press Reviews

'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'
Guardian

'Unforgettable ... extraordinary. It is so powerful that for a long time after everything I read seemed bland'
Isabel Allende

'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'
Daily Telegraph

'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'
Observer
