The book is substantially divided in two parts. In the first part it's a great book. The second part of the story (where the main character - Amir - returns to Pakistan) does not make any sense at all.

I agree. However, I really don't like the way the story is written in the second part. Leave aside the "evil" character who is both taliban and nazi (ok, let's pass it and let's say that he is evil impersonified), but the story is not realistic. Of course it's a story but you cannot write half a romance as an autobiography (or a narration of one's experience too realistical to be made up) and then write a second part of the story without any sense (with possibly the exception of the last chapter) where everything is there (secret services, taliban leader acting like a moghul, smuggling a guy into the US from Pakistan and so on). I find it inconsistent (but it might be just my taste) and while reading I felt that in the second part the romance lost a lot of grip

I think the first part is true story. It is the author autobiography. It is too moving, cannot be story of someone else.
Second part is the author wish.... He wish to make it over.... He wish to pay it back.... He wants to be punished.
My two cents. ^^
