The kite runner by Khaled Hosseini( Book )

161 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 22 languages and held by 8,941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An epic tale of fathers and sons, of friendship and betrayal, that takes us from Afghanistan in the final days of the monarchy to the atrocities of the present day. The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy Afghan youth and the son of his father's servant, The Kite Runner is a beautifully crafted novel 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. It is also about the power of fathers over sons: their love, their sacrifices, and their lies
And the mountains echoed by Khaled Hosseini( Book )

So, then. You want a story and I will tell you one ... Afghanistan, 1952. Abdullah and his sister Pari live with their father and stepmother in the small village of Shadbagh. Their father, Saboor, is constantly in search of work and they struggle together through poverty and brutal winters. To Abdullah, Pari - as beautiful and sweet-natured as the fairy for which she was named - is everything. More like a parent than a brother, Abdullah will do anything for her, even trading his only pair of shoes for a feather for her treasured collection. Each night they sleep together in their cot, their heads touching, their limbs tangled. One day the siblings journey across the desert to Kabul with their father. Pari and Abdullah have no sense of the fate that awaits them there, for the event which unfolds will tear their lives apart; sometimes a finger must be cut to save the hand. Crossing generations and continents, moving from Kabul, to Paris, to San Francisco, to the Greek island of Tinos, with profound wisdom, depth, insight and compassion, Khaled Hosseini writes about the bonds that define us and shape our lives, the ways in which we help our loved ones in need, how the choices we make resonate through history and how we are often surprised by the people closest to us

In Persian folklore, Syngue Sabour is the name of a magical black stone, a patience stone, which absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. It is believed that the day it explodes, after having received too much hardship and pain, will be the day of the Apocalypse. But here, the Syngue Sabour is not a stone but rather a man lying brain-dead with a bullet lodged in his neck. His wife is with him, sitting by his side. But she resents him for having sacrificed her to the war, for never being able to resist the call to arms, for wanting to be a hero, and in the end, after all was said and done, for being incapacitated in a small skirmish

Kabul 1978. Amir è figlio di Baba, un uomo facoltoso di etnia Pashtun. Il suo migliore amico è Hassan, figlio del servitore di casa e appartenente alla inferiore etnia degli Hazara. Entrambi amano molto far volare gli aquiloni per i quali sono previste gare che coinvolgono molti ragazzi della città. Il vincitore è chi riesce a far restare il proprio aquilone in volo per ultimo dopo che tutti gli altri hanno avuto il filo tranciato. Amir, che ha ritrovato la stima di suo padre proprio in seguito alla vittoria (insieme ad Hassan) nella gara più importante di lì a poco assiste (senza avere il coraggio di intervenire) alla sodomizzazione di Hassan da parte di un terzetto di ragazzi ricchi e razzisti. Da quel momento si porterà dentro un senso di colpa che lo allontanerà dall'amico che vede come denuncia vivente della sua vigliaccheria. Finché un giorno, trasferitosi negli Stati Uniti e divenuto scrittore di successo, gli giungerà una telefonata. (Mymovies)
