The Kite Runner

After a wonderfully successful year the BBC is breaking for christmas and regrouping Feb. 11 at Karen's place to discuss The Kite Runner. 

The Kite Runner tells the story of Amir, a young boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, who befriends Hassan, the son of his father's Hazara servant. The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of Afghanistan's monarchy through the Soviet invasion, the mass exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the rise of the Taliban regime.

For those with some time to read on their hands the following BBC will be at Rohan's to discuss David Malouf's Ransom.
