Critical Commentary focusing on Style

The Kite Runner is a book loved by many people  for its straightforward storytelling, its convincingly real characters and their studies. Its startling but true account of the human toll of the violence that has accompanied Afghanistan and its turbulent political scene in the last thirty years are some of the things that intrigue most readers of this book. The author successfully employs the language of the novel which targets at the representation of the characters. The power of the language depicts characters and involves readers in the atmosphere of the life and culture in Afghanistan. He uses some Afghani words, such as Baba meaning father, to make readers closer to the Afghani culture. Khaled Hosseini’s powerful novel, The Kite Runner, fulfills the promise of fiction, and brightened curiosity about the world around us. The speaking of truth is what shows us the lessons of history. The themes are all similarly universal: Familial relationships, mainly focusing on the relationship between father and son, the price of disloyalty and the horrific realities of war.
