The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini


The Kite Runner of Khaled Hosseini's deeply moving fiction debut is an illiterate Afghan boy with an uncanny instinct for predicting exactly where a downed kite will land.

Growing up in the city of Kabul in the early 1970s, Hassan was narrator Amir's closest friend even though the loyal 11-year-old with "a face like a Chinese doll" was the son of Amir's father's servant and a member of Afghanistan's despised Hazara minority.

But in 1975, on the day of Kabul's annual kite-fighting tournament, something unspeakable happened between the two boys.

Buku terfavorit saya di tahun 2013.. Sempet merasa sinis sih, apakah buku ini bisa sebagus yang dibilang orang-orang. Saya pun sering ragu pengen baca buku ini, selain juga karena genrenya yang bukan favorit saya.
Ternyata.....setelah baca buku ini, saya jatuh cinta sama Khaled Hosseini. Apa ya yang bikin buku ini bagus? Ceritanya detail, gaya bahasanya dalem dan apik, bikin penasaran, dan auranya kerasa banget. Karakternya kuat sampai-sampai saya merasa kalau mereka itu nyata. Ceritanya juga dalem banget, tentang konflik persahabatan gitu. Overall, semuanya oke deh. Saya jatuh cinta sama ceritanya, sampai-sampai setelah membaca buku ini, saya masih shock karena kebawa-bawa ceritanya.
