    1. I can’t believe how sad this story is. Now I really have to read the novel, because there has to be MORE. More wonderful moments of true friendship between Amir and Hassan. More detail on the conflict between nations. More harrowing moments, too… This story moved me, greatly, and I may have shed a tear if things didn’t evolve as quickly as they did. In a way, it’s a good thing they did, because my interest never faltered and I was able to read this in one sitting. But still.I’m not fon [...]

    2. As if the words were not enough.Comes a graphic version of the story that still haunts my dreams.I can bet you all the money that I have ever had that the imagery of Khaled Hosseini's debut work would not have deserted your soul. The sorrow and the warmth of the closing pages should and would be as much a part of your consciousness as it is mine.Now putting together the brilliant work of the author along with the picturesque drawings of this book -casts a spell over you.The bond of friendship be [...]

    3. I read The Kite Runner in July, 2011, and when I discovered it had been made into a Graphic Novel, I really wanted to read it too. The illustrations are exquisite, the detail is wonderful, and I loved it just as much as the paperback. The Kite Runner: Graphic Novel is about a young boy, Amir, the only son of a popular entrepenuer, growing up in a wealthy part of Kabul, Afghanistan, who betrays his childhood friend and later has a chance to redeem himself. As his father's best friend, Rahim Khan, [...]

    4. Wow. Just wow. This was definitely the most emotional graphic novel I've ever read, and while I loved it - it hit me pretty hard. Someday I will need to read the actual book version. But wow. Maybe in awhile.

    5. The Kite Runner is one of my favorite novels; so I purchased a copy right away when I saw this graphic novel of the said book in a local bookstore here. I even watched the movie adaptation which was released on 2007; and applause to both the movie and this graphic novel because they followed the storyline of the book. All the important events in the novel was not missed in these adaptations and that's what make them worthy to watch and read. If you are a fan of Khaled Hosseini, fond of graphic n [...]

    6. Okay, so I did not expect this to be a whirlwind of terror and emotions. YEAH I'M BAD. Most people know what a book is before going into it, but I'm like "Omg, that is a famous book I shall read it." Ahem. So I saw this in the library and thought I'd try the graphic novel first(and also because graphic novels are freaking awesome AND I LOVE PICTURES!!)d it definitely made me want to read the actual novel now! IT IS SO SAD THOUGH. It's really gritty and the story is dark and 'scuse me. TEARS. I h [...]

    7. الكتاب جميل فعلا ،، لم أتصور أن يكون معبرا هكذا ،،، فكيف يتم اختصار كتاب تكمن أهميته فى تفاصيله فى صفحات قليلة و اختزال صفحات و صفحات من الوصف الباهر فى مجرد رسوم و مربعات حوار!! أولا الألوان: جاءت شبه قاتمة معبرة عن الجو النفسي للكتاب.ثانيا: اختيار أقل الكلمات لتتسع لها بالونة [...]

    8. sorry but i think i am the only one who did not enjoy the graphic novel as much as everyone else. I love the book and i feel like the graphic novel did not do justice to the actual book. It lacks emotions and the plot is rushed. Although the graphic novel follows every essence and every basic plot of the book, it lacks the minor details that made the book all the more interesting. So if u think the graphic novel is amazing, trust me, the actual book is a thousand times better. The artwork is pre [...]

    9. Actual Rating: 4.5 Childhood Stars!OH MY GODOOOOOMMMMMGGGGGIt broke my heart reading this book but it also opened up my eyes about other people struggles in life, for so long. Whether it's physically or emotionally Hassan is such a wonderful boy. He's brave & loyal, a good friend you want in your life. After that unfortunate incident that had happened to him really broke me to pieces. Amir its just you typical young boy who's eager to please his father all his life. The stuff that he had don [...]

    10. Actual Rating: 4.5This was a wonderful graphic novel adaptation of one of my favourite books. It was adapted well and I was just as emotionally connected with the story as I was with the novel. It's just so sad. :( I didn't love the illustrations but I did like the colour used and how it brought the story to life. The art suited the story well and the backgrounds were particularly rich. I love how, like the novel, it presents the culture and history of Afghanistan.I'd highly recommend this graph [...]

    11. I haven’t read The Kite Runner novel, so I don’t know how this graphic novel fares in comparison. I do have the novel on my bookshelf waiting to be read, and I can honestly say that after reading this fantastic graphic novel that I will be picking up the book by Khaled Hosseini.I’ll start by saying that there wasn’t anything that I disliked about this graphic novel. I thought that the drawings were stunning, and they really pulled me into the story and made the characters come to life. I [...]

    12. حيث افغانستان ليست مجرد بقعة جرداء من العالم يسكنها طالبان وتدور بها معارك لا مبرر لها أفغانستان أطفال بلا طفولة إعتداء صارخ على الأرض والبشر وألم يبدأ من لحظة الميلاد ويستمر حتى الوفاة أو الاختفاء القسرى عن الحياة ترجمة جيدة جداً لم تغفل المصطلحات الأفغانية مما قرب المع [...]

    13. This book found me. One of my former students gave me a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card for my September 6th birthday. Within 24 hours, I went browsing at B&N, and this book was on one of the first tables I passed. The student who had given me the gift card had talked with me about graphic novels that day. And this book was released on September 6th! Also, just a few weeks ago, I got to meet Khaled Hosseini. He was gracious, allowing me to take a photograph with me, signing my copy of The K [...]

    14. I haven't read the original novel (yet), so I had no idea on how the graphic novel adaption was going to be.I'll start with some positive things: I really enjoyed the art style. It fitted the tone of the story pretty well.The rest, I had problems with. The characters lacked of depth. I understand that, being an adaptation of a much more longer novel, some things were going to be cut out. At the same time, I missed having some well defined characters. They were either evil or emotionally destroye [...]

    15. I loved, loved, loved the artwork. The lovely colours did justice to an equally mosaic novel. Both are equally beautiful and magnificent.

    16. I read the hardcover novel before, in 2011, so this is a re-read. The graphic comic is actually better in some ways than the book since it makes facial expressions visible, and in being faster to read, makes the book's focus on a coming-of-age tale clearer. The story takes place during the years of Afghanistan's political turmoil: first, in the background, the Afghan monarchy was dethroned, then the Soviet Union's soldiers invaded, which brought on the Taliban takeover because many Afghans were [...]

    17. Beautiful art.Emotional story.Highly recommended."For you, a thousand times over". This made me cry.

    18. "لأجلك ,,,ألف مرة اخرى"من حسان إلى أمير -شتاء 1975- . ومن أمير إلى سهراب أبن حسان -2002-The Kite Runner is a book with great impact, carrying a story that you will not forget even years after reading it.

    19. عندما تنقل لك قصة مصورة هذه الحالة الإنسانية العميقة و تفاصيل حياة مجتمع في فترة ما و كأنك تعيشه فعلا فإنها تستحق القراءة

    20. كم من مرة اعدت قراءة جملة ( لاجلك الف مرة اخري )رواية تحمل حشد هائل من المشاعر المختلفة من الشر والخيانة الي الوفاء الابدي الي العنف والقتل والحب المطلق والرغبة في السلام للحظات ايقنت انها رواية من الواقع الحقيقي لا ادري لماذا؟ .عند بداية قرائتها لم استطع الا تكملتها سريعا لم [...]

    21. 5 stars to this awsome graphic not a single detail was missing ! Perfect!I think that the graphic was really similar to my imagination when I read the novel . For you, a thousand times over

    22. لأجلك، ألف مرة أخرى. من الروايات التي تبقى في الذاكرة.

    23. The Kite Runner is one of my favourite books of all time, so I thought it might be interesting to read it again as my first ever graphic novel. It still made me shed a tear at the end, but overall I think the format is probably not really my thing. On the upside, it was a very quick read, so I will most likely read it again one day, and take the time to really study the graphics.

    24. الحبالخوفو التضحيةتنصهر جميعاً لتكون محتوى هذه الروايةتترك خيطاً من النور وراء كل صفحة يمتد ليصل لقلبك و ينغرس عميقاً ليترك أثره فيه. سنوات كثيرة تكبر داخلك خلال هذه الرواية ترافق مع نمو "أمير آغا" من طفلإلى شابثم إلى رجلاستغرق نموي معه أربعة أيام. حبُّ الأرض يدفع لرسمها عرو [...]

    25. لأجلك ألف مرة أخرىالأشياء الرائعة يجب أن تعاش مرة واحدة فقط عشت مع هذا الكتاب قصة حب جعلتني متشوقة لنهايته وحريصة على الاستمتاع بكل كلمة منه إنه أحد الكتب القليلة التي أشعر بالحزن عند انتهائي من قرائتها رغم زخم المشاعر والأفكار التي تدفقت في ذهني استطعت أن أنسلّ من مكاني لأذ [...]

    26. الرواية من الناحية الادبية رائع وبتجبر القارئ على متابعة القرائة بكامل اجزائها ولكنها من ناحية الفكر فهي بتقدم دعم كبير للسياسات الامريكيه وتشويه التاريخ الافغاني وقدم الطالباني على اساس انو ي هي الشخصية الشريرة وقدمو على اساس قام باغتصاب طف واصبحت هي الشخصية هي احدى قادة [...]

    27. 3.5 stars - It was really good.It has been years since I read the novel, The Kite Runner, and with it coming up as the next selection for a local book club I grabbed this as a refresher. I'm not a big fan of graphic novels but enjoy the change in pace from time to time and was able to read this one in about an hour. As far as graphic novels go, I feel this one told the story in a more complete way whereas I am normally left feeling like I have only been given a shallow version of the story. Of c [...]

    28. رائعةرغم كل الاسي الذي تحويه هذه الرواية الا انني لن أنسي ابدا روعتها و دقة تفاصيلها و وصف الكاتب لكل شيء حتي كأنك تراه امامك افغانستان و باكستان عالم جديد دخلته و فترة زمنية لم اعرف عنها شيئا ، تعاطفت مع كل شخوصها و حزنت لاجلهم و في النهاية استطاع الكاتب رسم الابتسامة على وجه [...]
