The Kite Runner
Afghanistan, 1975: Twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the local kite-fighting tournament and his loyal friend Hassan promises to help him. But neither of the boys can foresee what will happen to Hassan that afternoon, an event that is to shatter their lives. After the Russians invade and the family is forced to flee to America, Amir realises that one day he must return to Afghanistan under Taliban rule to find the one thing that his new world cannot grant him: redemption.

🔮Hidden Depths

Дивовижно-життєва книга. Афганістан, про який ми лише здогадувались, постає перед нами в страшному образі... війна ламає долі...та їй ніколи не знищити доброти, милосердя, співчуття та покаяння! Сильна духом книга!

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

When you kill a man, you steal a life,” Baba said. “You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness. Do you see?”

Hassan and I used to climb the poplar trees in the driveway of my father’s house and annoy our neighbors by reflecting sunlight into their homes with a shard of mirror
