    I can’t believe how sad this story is. Now I really have to read the novel, because there has to be MORE. More wonderful moments of true friendship between Amir and Hassan. More detail on the conflict between nations. More harrowing moments, too… This story moved me, greatly, and I may have shed a tear if things didn’t evolve as quickly as they did.

I also wanted to know more about the Afghanistan in the 20th Century, but I understand that a graphic novel is not always able to provide us with large detailing and description and explanation without becoming tedious. This is why I strongly want to read the novel. Plus, it’s a classic… and I believe that classics need to be read. It’s not like their inventory can expand over the years. At least, not in my opinion.

    As if the words were not enough. Comes a graphic version of the story that still haunts my dreams. I can bet you all the money that I have ever had that the imagery of Khaled Hosseini's debut work would not have deserted your soul.

Comes a graphic version of the story that still haunts my dreams. I can bet you all the money that I have ever had that the imagery of Khaled Hosseini's debut work would not have deserted your soul. The sorrow and the warmth of the closing pages should and would be as much a part of your consciousness as it is mine. Now putting together the brilliant work of the author along with the picturesque drawings of this book -casts a spell over you. The bond of friendship between the two young people now develops magically in form of colors and sketches in front of your eyes. Their frolicking is captured by the realms of creativity that even an illiterate can read. Imagine reading braille your entire life and being able to read the words that you "touched", or to say they touched you. No book has left a deeper mark in my soul in the last decade as this one. The artwork draws you over and though there are words : they are superfluous. Not needed even if you have not read the book. But thou shalt know that if you have not read this work, a part of your heart is locked away which disentangles itself free somewhere within these pages. Opening this book felt like what it must feel for a blind animal to see for the first time. It can not say a lot, bar his limited sounds. But what it can say, or rather communicate, is that the world is beautiful. And this is what my review of this graphic adaption will say - "The world of two brothers is beautiful. The kind of beautiful that we all seek." Broke my heart a thousand times over, I will still come back for us to be closer.

    I read The Kite Runner in July, 2011, and when I discovered it had been made into a Graphic Novel, I really wanted to read it too. The illustrations are exquisite, the detail is wonderful, and I loved it just as much as the paperback. The Kite Runner: Graphic Novel is about a young boy, Amir, the only son of a popular entrepenuer, growing up in a wealthy part of Kabul, Afghanistan, who betrays his childhood friend and later has a chance to redeem himself. As his father's best friend, Rahim Khan, I read The Kite Runner in July, 2011, and when I discovered it had been made into a Graphic Novel, I really wanted to read it too. The illustrations are exquisite, the detail is wonderful, and I loved it just as much as the paperback. The Kite Runner: Graphic Novel is about a young boy, Amir, the only son of a popular entrepenuer, growing up in a wealthy part of Kabul, Afghanistan, who betrays his childhood friend and later has a chance to redeem himself. As his father's best friend, Rahim Khan, said, 'There's a way to be good again'. Amir grows up with Hassan, the Hazara servant boy whose father, Ali, grew up with Amir's father, Baba. Hassan's mother left as soon as he was born, and he endured taunts and bullying all of his young life, especially for being Hazara. Amir's mother died in childbirth, so both boys hadn't known their mothers, both being raised by their fathers. Amir loves to write stories, and knows his father is disappointed in him, plus he's jealous when his father shows affection toward Hassan. Hassan is the best kite runner in the city. The boys play a kite-flying game in winter; it is a huge competition, and is held every year. The strings are coated in tar and cut glass, and they deftly fly them so that their kite cuts the strings of other boys' kites. The winner is the last kite in the air. Amir wins the kite flying tournament in 1975, and sends Hassan off to retrieve the last cut kite. Hassan, devoted and loyal to Amir, runs off, saying over his shoulder, 'For you, a thousand times over'. Winning the tournament means everything to Amir, for Baba will love him now. But Amir witnesses something terrible when he is looking for Hassan after the running of the kite, but he does nothing, says nothing. He discovers he is a coward, unable to help Hassan as he has always helped him. He chooses his father's attention and love over Hassan's loyalty and friendship. There were many things to love about this book. It begins in the 70s, when Amir is about 12, and follows him through to 2002, about a year after September 11. The Kite Runner reveals how relatively simple their lives were before the Russians entered the scene, and how the Taliban were welcomed at first because they got rid of the Russians. Hosseini shows the human side of Afghanistan before the Russians came, then the Taliban. He paints a picture of Kabul full of mulberry and pomegranate trees, green grass, playing fields and parks, markets full of the spicy aroma of kabobs, young children carefree and happy, plus a tightly knit community. For anyone who hasn't yet read the original novel or this graphic novel, I urge you to do so...you won't regret it! EDIT I have just re-read this wonderful little graphic novel and my thoughts remain the same! I think the illustrations are delightful and the story heartbreaking. I highly recommend The Kite Runner in both the novel form and this one and although graphic novels aren't really my "thing", I'm happy to have read this one :)

    Wow. Just wow. This was definitely the most emotional graphic novel I've ever read, and while I loved it - it hit me pretty hard. Someday I will need to read the actual book version. But wow. Maybe in awhile.

    The Kite Runner is one of my favorite novels; so I purchased a copy right away when I saw this graphic novel of the said book in a local bookstore here. I even watched the movie adaptation which was released on 2007; and applause to both the movie and this graphic novel because they followed the storyline of the book. All the important events in the novel was not missed in these adaptations and that's what make them worthy to watch and read.

    Okay, so I did not expect this to be a whirlwind of terror and emotions. YEAH I'M BAD. Most people know what a book is before going into it, but I'm like "Omg, that is a famous book I shall read it." Ahem. So I saw this in the library and thought I'd try the graphic novel first...(and also because graphic novels are freaking awesome AND I LOVE PICTURES!!)...and it definitely made me want to read the actual novel now! IT IS SO SAD THOUGH. It's really gritty and the story is dark and 'scuse me. TE Okay, so I did not expect this to be a whirlwind of terror and emotions. YEAH I'M BAD.

IT IS SO SAD THOUGH. It's really gritty and the story is dark and 'scuse me. TEARS. I haven't ever read a graphic novel this dark. The art was also fantastic. I LOVED IT. And it was so emotional. Omg, when those kids started crying I WANTED TO START CRYING. But I didn't. Because Vulcan. So the story is set in the Middle East about the life of Amir and how he has a friend/servant named Hassan. It's about kites...kind of?! Like that's in the beginning, but Amir also moves to American and ALL the stuff goes down. Of which I'll say naught because spoilers, duh. I really didn't like Amir though. He was all, "Oh Hassan you're my best friend." But Amir was still a spoiled kid and really didn't look beyond HIMSELF. And I hate that. It's probably the thing I hate most when reading books. ERGH HUMANS. LOOK BEYOND YOURSELF ALREADY. (Note: this doesn't make it a bad book, of course!! But yeah...I really couldn't stand Amir's naivety even when it was happening in front of his own eyes.) Then there's a tRAGEDY. And Amir and Haasan's friendship is changed forever. I did like how it was about friendship, even though it was a crummy friendship, tbh. Basically I was entirely hooked while reading it. Usually I flip and see how many pages I have to go, etc, etc, but HERE I WAS GOBBLING THEM UP. It was an excellent story and totally sucked me in. Although I don't really understand how they cut kite strings with other kite strings??? I'm sure the actual book would explain. Of which, I need to go read it.

    الكتاب جميل فعلا ،، لم أتصور أن يكون معبرا هكذا ،،، فكيف يتم اختصار كتاب تكمن أهميته فى تفاصيله فى صفحات قليلة و اختزال صفحات و صفحات من الوصف الباهر فى مجرد رسوم و مربعات حوار!! أولا الألوان: جاءت شبه قاتمة معبرة عن الجو النفسي للكتاب. ثانيا: اختيار أقل الكلمات لتتسع لها بالونة الحوار ،، و لا يصل لك المعنى مع ذلك ناقصا ،، و هذا إبداع د، أحمد خالد توفيق متعدد المواهب :)) إجمالا :: كانت تجربة ثرية.

After that unfortunate incident that had happened to him really broke me to pieces. Amir its just you typical young boy who's eager to please his father all his life. The stuff that he had done to Hassan after the incident really make me want to punch his in the fave but I understand because that's how he cope with his guilt & cowardness. BUT I STILL WANT TO PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE. Fast forward several years later where Amir & his dad moved to the United State. He finally made him proud & living the life though occasionally thinking about Hassan. Basically, he's living in guilt all those years. I really like Kaka Rahim character in this book because he's like a real family to Amir & when he decided to go on with his life without curing himself by the end of the book, really makes me sad. With all the struggles & challenges Hassan faced, it still lead him to happiness although it was temporary. I'm so glad that Hassan got to keep his legacy through Sohrab. AND OMG ASSEF CAN JUST ROT IN JAHANNAM I TELL YOU. HE'S A PIECE OF KHARA IF YOU ASK ME. The moment when Sohrab tried to killed himself when he knows that he'll going back to another orphanage really get me. He's been too much & he's just a child. Thank God, that the travelling & adoption went well because I was rooting for Amir, Soraya & Sohrab to be a family. Finally. Amir did something courages & I'm really happy with the ending! Since I love this Graphic Novel so much, I'm thinking about reading the novel someday. Brb, still crying my eyes out.

I’ll start by saying that there wasn’t anything that I disliked about this graphic novel. I thought that the drawings were stunning, and they really pulled me into the story and made the characters come to life. I focused on each and every panel, and paid such attention to the little details that were in the story. I was blown away by the powerful story, and I was left shocked at some parts. The story is truly heartbreaking, and yet full of hope. The graphic novel gives a good idea of how life in Afghanistan had changed over twenty years – something we don’t learn about at school here in the UK. After reading this, I am interested in finding out more about the Palestinian people and the problems that were/are happening in Afghanistan. I definitely think that a book like this would be a great read for a teenager who wanted to discover more about the subject. The Kite Runner has also been made into a movie, so I’ll definitely be checking that out after reading the novel. I want to thank Bloomsbury for sending me this wonderful book, as it’s really opened my eyes and encouraged me to want to learn more about the issues at hand.

He was gracious, allowing me to take a photograph with me, signing my copy of The Kite Runner, and saying that I looked too young to be a teacher. On this book's actual merits: It is a very faithful adaptation of the novel, making similar emotional impacts with its drawings. The story in comic form still swept me away. One of my favorite pages in this book is of (SPOILER!) Baba's death on page 90. The final page is also fantastic. Unlike the movie which cast a non-blonde Assef, this book makes Assef how he was described in the original book. I will add this book to my class library. The Kite Runner is one of four books that students can choose to read in my class. I hope this book can serve two purposes: (1) to encourage students to read the full-text novel and (2) to give students a quick taste of KR if they choose one of the other three books instead.

They were either evil or emotionally destroyed. The plot was well paced, but the setting was underdeveloped and that kind of sucked, because I wanted to know more about the characters' background. Emotionally, it was a very sad graphic novel. It's not something you can read to make you feel better or cheer you up on a sad day. This is going to make you feel like SHIT. It's unfortunate that some aspects were underdeveloped, because it was a pretty heavy and emotional read and some elements just didn't work.

    I read the hardcover novel before, in 2011, so this is a re-read. The graphic comic is actually better in some ways than the book since it makes facial expressions visible, and in being faster to read, makes the book's focus on a coming-of-age tale clearer.

The story takes place during the years of Afghanistan's political turmoil: first, in the background, the Afghan monarchy was dethroned, then the Soviet Union's soldiers invaded, which brought on the Taliban takeover because many Afghans were disgusted by the Russians' lack of piety. While the political situation dramatically alters the protagonists' lives, the book is actually about the spiritual journey of the main character, Amir, as he learns what true faith is about (hint: it has nothing to do with religion.) Many readers expect a story about the horrors of living in a primitive violent patriarchial country, where everyday life is not much different than how life was in the year 800 AD, with the depravities of extreme Islamic fundamentalism driving the plot forward. Well, of course, reader, since religious insanity is the reality of life under the Taliban, as well as what Afghan culture has devolved into through centuries of isolation, the book must include incidents of Taliban excesses and Afghan culturally-accepted abuses. But what I think many readers miss, in my opinion, is the novel is actually about Amir's moral journey as he grows from a jealous insecure child to a man who faces and corrects his mistakes - and, by doing so, becomes the man his father had always wanted - and finally understanding what Faith is REALLY about.

    The Kite Runner is one of my favourite books of all time, so I thought it might be interesting to read it again as my first ever graphic novel. It still made me shed a tear at the end, but overall I think the format is probably not really my thing. On the upside, it was a very quick read, so I will most likely read it again one day, and take the time to really study the graphics.

    3.5 stars - It was really good. It has been years since I read the novel, The Kite Runner, and with it coming up as the next selection for a local book club I grabbed this as a refresher. I'm not a big fan of graphic novels but enjoy the change in pace from time to time and was able to read this one in about an hour. As far as graphic novels go, I feel this one told the story in a more complete way whereas I am normally left feeling like I have only been given a shallow version of the story.

As far as graphic novels go, I feel this one told the story in a more complete way whereas I am normally left feeling like I have only been given a shallow version of the story. Of course, that could also be in part because I have actually read the novel in the past. Whichever format you choose, The Kite Runner makes for a bittersweet and emotional read.

    رائعة...رغم كل الاسي الذي تحويه هذه الرواية الا انني لن أنسي ابدا روعتها و دقة تفاصيلها و وصف الكاتب لكل شيء حتي كأنك تراه امامك ..افغانستان و باكستان ..عالم جديد دخلته و فترة زمنية لم اعرف عنها شيئا ، تعاطفت مع كل شخوصها و حزنت لاجلهم و في النهاية استطاع الكاتب رسم الابتسامة على وجهي في حبكة فنية متقنة
