The Sufferings of Boyhood

No matter what you’ve done in the past, “[there] is a way to be good again.”

The last daring chance to set things right.

The Kite Runner is a story that deeply touched people from every cultural and social background. The Kite Runner took readers on a journey across continents, into a man’s quest to correct a  mistake and accept the devastating truth. Deftly weaving the personal with the political, Hosseini forged a tale filled with suspense and intensity of feeling.  The novel is deeply mysterious with a private extended world of fantasy.

    “Hosseini’s depiction of pre-revolutionary Afghanistan is rich in warmth and humor but also tense with the friction between the nation’s different ethnic groups.”

    Personal Opinion:

    Things get more interesting but also a lot sillier in the finale. Amir returns to Kabul to try to set things right and ends up in a series of unbelievable coincidences and unlikely situations. The main point of this ending seems to be to allow the audience to see how horrible the Taliban are (or were.) Unfortunately, while it is difficult to fathom the degradation that Afghanistan underwent under the twin dictatorships of the Soviets and the Taliban, it is hard to care much about Amir and his redemption.
