Roger Moore's six best books

Roger Moore will always be remembered for playing James Bond and as Simon Templar in the long-running 1960s TV series The Saint.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express. One book on his list:
by Khaled Hosseini
Bloomsbury, £7.99

A story of fathers and sons, friendship and betrayal, and the casualties of fate. It’s set in Afghanistan during the Seventies and all 12-year-old Amir wants is to win the local kite-fighting tournament, along with his friend Hassan. But one seemingly ordinary afternoon the Russians invade and everything changes. A thought-provoking novel and a deserved bestseller.
Read about the other five books on Moore's list.
