The kite runner by Khaled Hosseini( Book )

540 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in 24 languages and held by 11,893 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. The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy 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, and it is also about the power of fathers over sons-their love, their sacrifices, their lies
A thousand splendid suns by Khaled Hosseini( Book )

296 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in 18 languages and held by 8,526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: After more than two years on the bestseller lists, Khaled Hosseini returns with a beautiful, riveting, and haunting novel of enormous contemporary relevance. A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's last thirty years-from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding-that puts the violence, fear, hope and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives-the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness-are inextricable from the history playing out around them. Propelled by the same storytelling instinct that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once a remarkable chronicle of three decades of Afghan history and a deeply moving account of family and friendship. It is a striking, heart wrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love-a stunning accomplishment
And the mountains echoed by Khaled Hosseini( Book )

122 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 15 languages and held by 5,997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a story inspired by human love, how people take care of one another, and how choices resonate through subsequent generations. Afghanistan, 1952. Abdullah and his sister Pari live with their father and step-mother 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; there is an unparalleled bond between these two motherless siblings. What happens to them, and the large and small manners in which it echoes through the lives of so many other people is an example of the moral complexity of life. In this multigenerational novel revolving around parents and children, brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, the author explores the many ways in which family members love, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another

Stones into schools : promoting peace with books, not bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan by Greg Mortenson( Recording )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this dramatic first-person narrative, Greg Mortenson picks up where Three Cups of Tea left off in 2003, recounting his relentless, ongoing efforts to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan; his extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake hit the region in 2005; and the unique ways he has built relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders even as he was dodging shootouts with feuding Afghan warlords and surviving an eight-day armed abduction by the Taliban. He shares for the first time his broader vision to promote peace through education and literacy, as well as touching on military matters, Islam, and women-all woven togther with the many rich personal stories of the people who have been involved in this remarkable two-decade humanitarian effort. Since the 2006 publication of Three Cups of Tea, Mortenson has traveled across the U.S. and the world to share his vision with hundreds of thousands of people. He has met with heads of state, top military officials, and leading politicians who all seek his advice and insight. The continued phenomenal success of Three Cups of Tea proves that there is an eager and committed audience for Mortenson's work and message

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Ainsi résonne l'écho infini des montagnes by Khaled Hosseini( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'événement éditorial de l'année! Après six ans d'attente, l'auteur-culte Khaled Hosseini nous revient avec une oeuvre passionnante, d'une ampleur et d'une intensité dramatique impressionnantes. Tour à tour déchirant, émouvant, provocant, un roman-fleuve sur l'amour, la mort, le sacrifice, le pardon, la rédemption, sur ces choix qui nous façonnent et dont l'écho continue de résonner dans nos vies. Dans le village de Shadbagh, Abdullah, dix ans, veille sur sa petite soeur Pari, trois ans. Entre les deux enfants, le lien est indéfectible, un amour si fort qu'il leur permet de supporter la disparition de leur mère, les absences de leur père en quête désespérée d'un travail et ces jours où la faim les tenaille. Mais un événement va venir distendre ce lien, un choix terrible qui modifiera à jamais le destin des deux jeunes vies, et de bien d'autres encore ... Des années cinquante à nos jours, d'une petite cahute dans la campagne afghane aux demeures cossues de Kaboul, en passant par le Paris bohème des seventies et le San Francisco clinquant des années quatre-vingt, Hosseini le conteur nous emmène dans un voyage bouleversant, une flamboyante épopée à travers les grands drames de l'Histoire

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)
