『君のためなら千回でも』(きみのためならせんかいでも、原題: The Kite Runner, ペルシャ語題: کاغذ‌پران‌باز- Kāğazparān Bāz か بادبادک‌باز Bādbādak-bāz) )は、アフガニスタンのカーブル出身のカーレド・ホッセイニによる小説。及びそれを原作とした2007年のアメリカ映画。


The Kite Runner is the first novel by Afghan-American author Khaled Hosseini. Published in 2003 by Riverhead Books, it tells the story of Amir, a young boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, whose closest friend is Hassan, his father’s young Hazara servant. The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of Afghanistan’s monarchy through the Soviet military intervention, the exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the rise of the Taliban regime. Hosseini has commented that he considers The Kite Runner to be a father–son story, emphasizing the familial aspects of the narrative, an element that he continued to use in his later works. Themes of guilt and redemption feature prominently in the novel, with a pivotal scene depicting an act of violence against Hassan that Amir fails to prevent. The latter half of the book centers on Amir’s attempts to atone for this transgression by rescuing Hassan’s son over two decades later.
