Hassan is a Hazara and Amir is a Pashtun. Amir and Hassan grew up together. How do you think society feels about this? Do you think society will ever accept Hazaras? Read to find out.....
I grew up with Hassans father.
I like reading books to Hassan.
In the book Hassan goes from living in a "mud house", to living in the house with Baba and Amir, To having a tragic experience in an alley way, and then finally becoming a husband and father.
This is Hassan after he had a tragic experience in the alley way.
One symbol in the book is the lamb. Hassan had the same facial expression as the lamb when the lamb was getting killed. Blue symbolizes the victory at the kite tournament. Amir knocked down the blue kite. Books symbolize happiness. Hassan gets happy when Amir reads him books. The palmagranet tree symbolizes hatred and guilt. Amir throws palmagranets in Hassans face out of guilt.

In some places this book is banned because of the context of it and the reality of it. In my opinion it should not be banned because it tells real life situations and shows things that actual things that happen. This book shows the real way that less fortunate people are treated. It shows how citizen in certain countries are treated.
