Recensioner i media

A gripping read and a haunting story of love, loss and betrayal. Guaranteed to move even the hardest heart * Independent * Shattering ... devastating and inspiring * Observer * Hosseini is a truly gifted teller of tales ... he's not afraid to pull every string in your heart to make it sing * The Times * Rings true with tenderness and truth * Daily Mail * A devastating, masterful and painfully honest story of a life crippled by an act of childhood and cowardice and cruelty ... It speaks the harrowing truth about the power of evil, personal and political, and intoxicates, like a high-flying kite, with the power of hope * Daily Telegraph * Stunning and heartbreaking in its quiet intensity * Guardian * This is one of those unforgettable stories that stay with you for years. All the great themes of literature and of life are the fabric of this extraordinary novel: love, honour, guilt, fear, redemption ... It is so powerful that for a long time after, everything I read seemed bland * Isabel Allende * The novel that made Afghanistan the talking-point of every book group * Guardian, 50 Books that Defined the Decade *

Hosseini is also a Goodwill Envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the UN Refugee Agency, and the founder of The Khaled Hosseini Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation which provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.
