The Kite Runner

The connection this book made was a world connection. The story was based in Aphganistan, there was and still is problems with religion. Haraza is one that is bad to have because people of that religion would get sexually and physically abused, men and women. The story relates to men getting sexually and physically abused by learders of Aphganistan. Now a days in the middle east things like that still happen and it is very common. The theme of the book is finding redemption for Amir's guilt from twenty six years ago. To mske it up to his deased friend, Hassan, he adopts his son and moves him to the United States with him and his wife.

The Kite Runner

In my opinion I would give this book 3 out of 5 stars because the plot of the story wasnt something i could connect with. The authors writing style was easy to read and i enjoyed reading it. The character i liked the most was Amir, the narrator, because you got to see him grow up from being this selfish little boy that was lacking his father's attention to this selfless man that had a wife and adopted his servants/best friend's son after his death, he learned to do the right thing no matter the cost, and was able to make up for the guilt he had for twenty six years.


Amir is the narrator of the story, when he was a child he lived with his father in Afhganistan. They had servents, one was a boy his age named Hassan. He moved to California with his wife and became a writer. He changed throught the book and became more selfless then selfish and he learned from his father Baba to always do the right thing and theres nothing wrong with sacrafice. Hassan, although he is not in the book the whole time he is talked about a lot throughout the story. He was Baba and Amir's servent, he is also a very loyal friend to Amir that goes through sexual and physical abuse, he gets married and has a son, Sohrab. Him and his wife were killed and his son went to an orphanage. Sohrab had a very abrupted childhood that was traumatic and made him not want to speak. As you get to know him you notice similarities between him and Hassan.



The setting takes place in Kabul, Afghanistan and California, United States. The time of the book was 1975 through 2001. Amir and his father, Baba, had to move to the United States because of the Soviet Invasion.
