The Kite Runner

By Khaled Hosseini (8)

Show/Hide Info

Khaled Hosseini’s critically acclaimed and beloved The Kite Runner is a historical fiction set in Afghanistan. Hosseini’s novel begins prior to the invasion of Afghanistan by the Soviet Union, and is the story of a boy, Amir, who flies kites with his closest friend Hassan, the son of Amir’s father’s servant. The novel explores the difficulties these two boys encounter as a result of their differing economic and social status, while also examining a tempestuous father-son relationship, as Amir vies for his father’s attention, but ultimately feels set aside in Hassan’s favor. Amir’s jealousy, and inherent need to curry his father’s favor, leads to a catastrophic event that shapes the boys’ respective lives irrevocably. Following the tragic collapse of their friendship, Amir witnesses the invasion of Afghanistan by the Soviet Union, and the boy, now a teenager, flees with his father to the United States. However, as a married adult, Amir returns to Afghanistan, hoping to resolve childhood wrongs, absolve his guilt, and move forward with his life. The Kite Runner, a stunning debut, can be enjoyed by mature students, as it explores human strength and resiliency through excruciatingly difficult situations, while also scrutinizing our fundamental need for relationships and their restorative power.
