The kite Runner shows how war can affect the common person, and sheds a light on sensitive subjects like discrimination, war, and how far people will go to strip someones power. Read this book if you want an understanding of the struggles afghans have/are going through.
For you a thousand times over!
The lamb represents innocence and sacrifice. The book Amir reads to Hassan represents happiness and memories. Blue was the color of the kite that brings back sadness and hatred . The pomegranate Amir throws at Hassan represents guilt and anger.
Coming of Age
I accepted that I had to move to American and leave everything behind because of the war.
My struggle within myself was when Hassan got harassed. I didn't help at all I never talked to hm I just left him alone.
Through out the book we get introduced to three main characters. Amir, Hassan, and Assef. Each have their own personalities and go through different challenge's, we see them change and grow.
"For you a thousand times over," Hassan says to Amir before getting the blue Kite. Even though Amir hurts and uses Hassan, Hassan always protects Amir no mater the circumstances. An example of this is in the movie Coroline. Coroline treats Whibe really poorl, but Whibe treats Coroline kind and respectful. I relate to this quote because I help my friends and other people no matter the problem. I treat people with kindness and forgive very easily. No matter how well someone treats a person, they will betray them in for their gain.
There is so many things that Amir goes through and rows from his experiences. Like his innocence being lost at an early age, having to face the adult world, struggling within himself, who was disapiontied in him, what he had to accept, and how aware he is about things.
My innocence was lost in the ally way when I saw Hassan getting harassed.
I dissapointed my father when I didn't play soccer and watch it with him.
I am aware that I treated Hassan very poorly.
My first experience with the adult world was when I had to run away from the war.
I always see Hassan and Amir so close I'm jealous that I don't get enough attention from Baba.
In this book we see heavily discrimination against Hazarras. We also see how difficult and the struggles it takes to give up everything and escape to a safer place to get away from war. The Author also shows how far someone will go to strip someones power, along with how fast situations can turn horribly wrong. Respect is extremely important in this book especially in Afghan culture.
