I read the book and watched the movie a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised with the movie because usually movies completely butcher the book. However, I felt the two were very similar. The only things I would say that were left out were the tiny details. Things that make the book a lot more descriptive, but which the movie had to skip over for the sake of time. For example, in the movie when Amir and his father were escaping from Kabul, they were not dropped off at a house and left in the basement due to lack of furthur transportation. Also, one of the three "bullys" (I can't remember his name) was not present during the second leg of the trip in the bully... the guy with the father who wound up killing himself.
