On Friday, April 8, 2022, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall’s Reading Room announced the first book for Season 6: The Kite Runner. I loved this novel! If you haven’t had a chance to read this amazing story, I highly recommend that you do.
Originally published in 2003 by Mr. Khaled Hosseini — and made into a film in 2007 — The Kite Runner tells the story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father’s servant:
“…the novel is a beautifully crafted story set in a country that is in the process of being destroyed. It is about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption; and an exploration of the power of fathers over sons—their love, their sacrifices, their lies.
A sweeping story of family, love, and friendship told against the devastating backdrop of the history of Afghanistan over the last thirty years, The Kite Runner is an unusual and powerful novel that has become a beloved, one-of-a-kind classic.”
If haven’t heard about The Duchess of Cornwall’s Reading Room, which launched on Instagram in January 2021, is a “…literary hub on a mission to help readers and non-readers alike find and connect with books they will love. Through exclusive author interviews and behind-the-scenes content, The Reading Room celebrates books from around the world and the extraordinary people who create them.”
