The depth of any relationship is woven by tiny threads of loyalty. The moment you cease to be loyal, even for a single small fraction of a moment, that’s the end of it. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini talks about family and loyalty in an endearing way.
It will make you fall in love with its characters.
It will make you cry by an emotional outburst of relationships.
It will rip you apart with its sheer honesty.
This book is the rare combination of literary brilliance and its educational life lessons.
I have read a lot of story books but none made me feel the way Khaled Hosseini made me feel. By the time I finished a quarter of the novel, I just had one thought- This guy is magic! There are a lot of good stories and there are a lot of good storytellers. Kite Runner is one of those rare works of literature that has both.
The book depicts human relations beautifully This book was a spectacular rollercoaster ride of twists and turns that left me hooked,
The book speaks of redemption, friendship, forgiveness, love, and compassion. The sensitivity with which the author has touched upon certain subjects makes you see life in a new perspective. He doesn’t make heroes of his characters but talks about the struggle a common person faces to stand up to certain situations in life. He makes you see that life may not always be seen in black or white, that accepting the gray areas may not always be easy, but it takes courage and nothing is better in life than to be at peace with yourself.
it teaches you about courage, loyalty and the power of guilt. Standing up for your friend in front of a gang of bullies takes courage. Coming to terms with your past takes courage. Understanding that your father, the man who you idolized, was also just a man, after all, takes courage.
It shows how one mistake can change the course of your entire life. It makes you realize that no matter where you’re from, or who you worship, we’re all human. We all make errors in judgment. What is important is letting go of your past and embracing your future.
Book conveys the important social message that guilt can ultimately leads to good. And there’s always be a way to be good again. It is only natural for humans to make mistakes, just like Amir in the novel The Kite Runner, but it is how the mistakes are resolved that will dictate one’s fate.however a strong will and determination can help guide the road to redemption and possible forgiveness.
This book is a must read for all teenages, reading this book help us realize how fortunate we are to lived our childhood in such a conducive environment, there are places where “There are a lot of children in Afghanistan, but little childhood,”.
Lastly, I feel that this novel has something for everyone, teaching for a friend, a parent, a brother, and most importantly for humanity.
Conclusively, I would suggest you not only to read it, rather experience it. Cribbing it in one word: Eye-opener.
