In 2003 author Hosseini returned to Afganistan after his book was in print. He arrived in Kabul to literally trace Amir's footsteps. He had left his homeland as an 11-year-old seventh grader and returned as a 38-year-old physician. His two weeks there were spent in locating and seeing his war-torn country, his city and his family home. He came feeling like a tourist in his own country trying to find landmarks remaining only in his memory. KITE RUNNER is a lovely, poignant story that will continue to occupy your thoughts long after you've finished the last page of the book.
