Book Review~ The kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

The kite runner was a story of two friends and a father. The protagonist name was Amir and his friend’s name was Hassan. They both used to play together in their childhood, and knew various games to keep themselves busy like other children.

The habit of them I liked the most was their book reading when they both sat on the stone under pomegranate tree and then Amir turned the best storyteller and Hassan seemed a perfect audience.

Amir and Hassan had a lot of common things like they both didn’t have mother, they both raised in same household and sharing the same wet nurse.

Amir is the son of a prominent and wealthy man, while Hassan, the son’s of Amir father’s servant, is a hazara, member of ethnic minority.

This story make you think about your relationship with your friends. In this story l love how Hassan always explicitly displayed his unwavering loyalty for his friend. For me he was the hero of story.

This story had hidden a dark secret till the end which broke everyone in two parts. One was in Afghanistan and other one was in California.

Amir and Hassan intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect their eventual tragedy of the world around them.

When Amir flee with his father from Afghanistan to California, he thought that he had escaped his past. And yet he could never erase Hassan’s memories from his mind.

The kite runner was a story about friendship, betrayal, and the price of loyalty. This book has made a very special place in my heart and it forever be a treasure for me.

“For you, a thousand times over,” this line said by two people in this story,

Once it urged me to cry,

Second time it successfully brought little smile on my face.

My Rating~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
