  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 fond of the art, but [...]

  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 betw [...]

  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, sai [...]

  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 novels [...]

  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 haven t ever r [...]

  7. 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 interesting So if u think the graphic novel is amazing, trust me, the actual book is a thousand times better The artwork is pretty anywa [...]

  8. 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 done to Hassan [...]

  9. 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 graphic novel [...]

  10. 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 focused on [...]

  11. 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 BN, 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 Kite Runner, and sa [...]

  12. 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 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 destroyed.The plot [...]

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

  14. 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 dis [...]

  15. ,,, 1975 2002 The Kite Runner is a book with great impact, carrying a story that you will not forget even years after reading it.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. 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 complete way whereas I am normally left feeling like I have only been given a shallow version of the story Of course, th [...]
