In the beginning a kid named Thomas comes and a girl Theresa. They are the keys to making it out of the maze alive but they don't know it yet, they have passion to get out but they can't do it alone.

    This essay will discuss the central themes of the book The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini. Because the story is told at a time before the War on Terror, it brings the reader back to an Afghanistan the average American never knew existed and presents the current socio-economic reality of a United States one may choose to ignore. The description of Afghanistan before its many "occupations" is a tragedy in itself. The Author portrays a country on the cusp of greatness, which of course makes the inevitable future occupations all the more tragic. When Amir returns to Afghanistan after nearly twenty years, his shock is palpable. He has come back to an entirely different country, and only fragments remain from his past.…

    Hassan - Amir's best childhood friend. He was often bullied by Assef and his followers Kamal and Wali. He was Ali's son even though later in the novel, it is revealed that he is truly the son of Baba and Amir's brother. Late in the book, they allow us to know by saying that there is a special closeness that people who fed from the same breasts share. He was poorly educated and stood up for what he believed in, even if it meant dying for it. He always stood up for Amir no matter what the consequence, even if its him being raped. In the end of the novel, he does get shot for not giving up Amir's property after he had moved to America.…

    “Children aren’t coloring books. You don’t get to fill them with your favorite colors” (Hosseini 21). Rahim Khan said to Baba when he talks about Amir lacking manly qualities; he explains to Baba that he shouldn’t force a child to be like them. All fathers’ parenting style is different from a mothers’ parenting style when it comes to a male child. What a male child need the most is his fathers’ guidance most especially if the child’s mother isn’t present. In KhaledHosseni’s novel, The Kite Runner, a story of a boy who has an absent mother, and longed for his father’s love and did everything to get until the point that he even gave up an important friendship with his childhood friend. Another two novels that parallel the story is Chinua Achebe’s, Things Fall Apart and Salman Rushdie’s, Haroun and the Sea of Stories.
