When you kill a man you steal a life You steal his wife s right to a husband rob his children of a father When you tell a lie you steal someone s right to the truth When you cheat you steal the right to fairness There is no act wretched than stealing I m going to be honest with you To read this book was a constant struggle not because I didn t like the writing style not because it was bad and not because it was boring No if anything The Kite Runner was so hard to read because it was so exceptionally ainful This book made me so sad I felt helpless and angry and there were times I actually was than just tempted to stop reading Some of the chapters were just too hard to bear and the book touched me in a way I can t even describe It did something with me and I m still not sure whether this was good or badAll I know is that the injustice in this book made me furious and that I just have to think about it and already feel sick to my stomach again There were so many serious topics in this book but I think what really got to me was the central theme of violence injustice and abuse To read The Kite Runner was so devastating and nerve racking I actually couldn t read than two chapters a day It was so upsetting that I found it difficult to motivate myself to read it and even though this was such a Die Wise painful read I still wanted to know what would happen nextAmir s and Hassan s story was so horrible appallingowerful and beautiful at the same time It left me completely broken and raw and I think my emotions are still all over the Yan And The Pikes Violin place So if my review sounds a little incoherent and illogical you can blame it on the book hangover I m currently suffering from XD But we were kids who had learned to crawl together and no history ethnicity society or religion was going to change that eitherThelotAmir and Hassan are best friends who grew up together and live in Kabul They do almost everything together and one of their favourite hobbies is kite running One day there is a local kite fighting tournament Amir is determined to win and with the help of Hassan he is even able to achieve his goal The victory of the tournament comes with a high Hungarian Heroes and Legends price though and in the end their moment of happiness isn t only short lived but also comes to an abrupt end What happens after the competition destroys their lifelong friendship and shakes the foundations of their trust the course of their lives changing as they try to deal with the repercussions of a single day It may be unfair but what happens in a few days sometimes even a single day can change the course of a whole lifetime Amir he saidThe characters Beware there arelenty of spoilers lying ahead of you Amir I Land of Fright - Collection II (Land of Fright Collections Book 2) pretended I was reading from the book flippingages regularly but I had abandoned the text altogether taken over the story and made up my own Hassan of course was oblivious to this To him the words on the The Elders Speak page were a scramble of codes indecipherable mysterious Words were secret doorways and I held all the keys Puh what to say about him I think I never disliked arotagonist as much as I disliked the narrator of this story I just couldn t stand his younger self and I thought he wasn t just egoistic but also spoiled and than just unethical The way Amir treated Hassan made me sick and his betrayal towards his best friend hurt so much I mean how could he let this happen How could he stand aside without intervening How could he even think that Hassan is just a Hazara I don t understand it and if I m entirely honest I really think that it was good he felt bad throughout the entire book His The Pharisees Guide to Total Holiness past haunted him and in the end it actually made him a bettererson A Thirteenth Child (Frontier Magic, person that stood up to badeople and a Craft Notes for Animators person I was finally able to forgive It was a long journey for Amir but he eventually did the right thing and when I read the finial sentences of this book I was evenroud of him XD It s all right I turned to the general You see General Sahib my father slept with his servant s wife She bore him a son named Hassan Hassan is dead now That boy sleeping on the couch is Hassan s son He s my nephew That s what you tell Perception and the External World people when they ask They were all staring at me And one thing General Sahib I said You will never again refer to him as a Hazara boy in myresence He has a name and it s Sohrab I waited 331 Popular Representations of Development pages for that to happen XDHassan Then Hassan didick up a Sister for Sale pomegranate He walked toward me He opened it and crushed it against his own forehead There he croaked red dipping down his face like blood Are you satisfied Do you feel better He turned around and started down the hill God bless his kind and innocent soul This boy was an angel and I don t even know how he was able to forgive Amir As it seems he managed to do it though and my deep respect and love for his character will never cease I loved Hassan with all my heart and I think his only flaw was that he was just too good to live in this sick and violent world He would have deserved so much than life gave him and when I found out about Sohrab s ordeal I was than just heartbroken I was devastated I know Hassan must have turned over in his grave and I felt so so so damn sorry for what happened to both of them Baba Theroblem of course was that Baba saw the world in black and white You can t love a The Blue Door (Threshold person who lives that way without fearing him too Maybe even hating him a littleBaba definitely was a very flawed character but I still couldn t help but had to love him for it There was so much good in him yet he also had his bad sides For aerson that was described as seeing the world in black and white he actually was all different kinds of grey and in some way that made him extremely likeable and disagreeable at the same time lol I think he was a very contradictory Two Views on the Doctrine of the Trinity person and after finding out about his secret I was finally able to understand why Still I loved that despite everything he tried to be a righteous man and when it comes down to it he certainly had his heart in the rightlace Ask him where his shame is They spoke He says this is war There is no shame in war Tell him he s wrong War doesn t negate decency It demands it even than in times of The Art of Standing Still peace And now fifteen years after I d buried him I was learning that Baba had been a thief And a thief of the worst kind because the things he d stolen had been sacred from me the right to know I had a brother from Hassan his identity and from Ali his honor His nang His namoos Sohrab This boy BROKE my heart and I don t even know how I m supposed toick up the A Ladys Honor (Cliffs of Cornwall, pieces He was just ten Damn it I don t understand howeople can hurt children and I can t even argharghsdfjklmno I hate what Assef did to him and I m so glad Sohrab got away from his clutches Chapter 22 was so horrible to read It made me sick to my stomach and I swear I was tempted to throw the book against a wall Urgh just to think about his hands on Sohrab My heart aches so much for that little boy He deserved a better childhood than that Damn no He actually deserved a childhood to begin with I miss Father and Mother too he croaked And I miss Sasa and Rahim Khan sahib But sometimes I m glad the. خالد حسینی در اولین رمان خود به نام بادبادک‌باز به دستاوردی نائل آمده که فقط تعداد اندکی از نویسندگان معاصر به آن دست یافته‌اند نویسنده ض.

Y re not they re not here any Why I touched his arm He drew back Because he said gasping and hitching between sobs because I don t want them to see me I m so dirty He sucked in his breath and let it out in a long wheezy cry I m so dirty and full of sin And OMG that beautiful ending That hopeful amazing and beautiful ending It killed me it was the death of me it was the final nail in my coffin That sweet and gentle and shy boy XD I already get emotional just thinking about it blinking away tears The bottom lineI hated the book I loved the book I hated the injustice the Bob and Larry in the Case of the Missing Patience pain Ali Hassan and Sohrab had to go through I hated the way the Taliban treated everyone they considered to be wrong and different I hated to read about the destruction of Amir s hometown I hated the violence I hated the war I hated to read about the many orphans the hungry children on the street I hated the way Amir acted when he was younger She had a largeurple bruise on her leg for days but what could I do except stand and watch my wife get beaten If I fought that dog would have surely The War to End All Wars put a bullet in me and gladly Then what would have happened to my Sohrab But I loved the details about Afghan culture I admired the bravery of Hassan and Baba my heart sang whenever they tried to be righteous and good In a world that had gone to hell they still tried to be decent they still tried everythingossible to stand up for their Death Comes for the Archbishop people to do the right thing They still had values and they didn t just believe in them they also acted according to them So yes for me The Kite Runner was a veryowerful book It Mostly Mama pushed my boundaries and forced me to fight through it It made me think about unpleasant things it forced me to see the bad and ugly things our world is made of but it also showed me the good ineople and their kindness If you can live with a broken heart and are able to deal with the The Naked Man pain this book his highly recommended If you re one of the faint hearted you better give it a wide berth As for me I definitely will never re read this book ever again I m kind ofroud that I accomplished to read it though XD For you a thousand times over The Kite Runner 2003 Khaled HosseiniThe Kite Runner is the first novel by Afghan American author Khaled Hosseini Published

having read this book suggested that I make this clarification to my review Thanks for the suggestion Bart Hopefully that clears things up for those who were wondering In 2012 when I was Mathematics teacher at a rivate high school in Iran I had an Afghan student in my class Sometimes I discussed with my students about literature and I told them of novels and oem I found it very strange that my students had no interest in literature and even sometimes looked with hostility to this discussion Days assed and much time was left to the end of school year One day I saw Ali Afghan student came to me and had a booklet in his hand and I saw in his eyes several times as if he wanted to say something but he was uiet I waited for a little and after a few moments I began to speak He smiled and with a special Afghan accent he said I have written a story sir and became uiet again I said it s excellent and I asked do you read books Yes sir he replied I asked what kind of books do you like Mark Twain and John Steinbeck and Jules Verne he answered I asked what you have written He replied I wrote a story about a 13 years old Afghan boy who immigrated to Iran I got his booklet and I read it in a week It was a dark story A week later we discussed again after class Ali invited me to go his house at night for reading books I was leased and I greeted this New Rational Therapy plan When night arrived I took the kite runner and went to Ali s home When I entered the house I saw a house with mud walls that has no rooms except a small hull that there was a table in the middle of it and almost nine children were dining Of clothes of Ali s father it was obvious that he was a building worker and he welcomed me very sincerely I thanked him and I went to the storehouse in the corner of the yard that Ali had made it alace to be alone Ali took the book and with incredible Written in the Stars (Cricket Creek, passion began to read Thisrocess was repeated almost every night for a week and we have read half of the Kite Runner Among The Great Anarchists pages of the book Ali informed me about Afghanistan explained of how twentyeople entered Iran with a small car illegally and secretly Of how his classmates ridiculed him because of his Afghan accent of how he was forced to work in a brick burner factory all days after the school of how his dad has forced him to marry at the age of 13 in the summer Then Ali Modern Engineering Statistics proceeded to speak that he wants to be a writer andrizes the Nobel award I saw in his room that he had Ferdowsi Omar Khayyam Hafiz and Rumi s book Hearts poem When I looked at his face I saw an unusual man who was ahead of his time and situation Ali said because Afghans have been banned of the registration inublic schools in Tehran he is forced to register in a The Silver Nightingale private school and now he and his mother must work hard toay school chargesThe next week I went to class but I didn t see Ali When I asked the guys about him they replied that because his father hadn t citizenship card and Threshold passport he was arrested and all of them have deported to Afghanistan I was agitated that I couldn t continue reading Kite Runner never Even I felt so depressed and sad when I saw the book in bookstores Until this spring after three years I got a message in WhatsApp messenger from Ali that congratulated teachers day to me He was written that he married to a girl who was in love with her and they have a two months old girl baby He was written he is working at a bookstore in Kabul and he has read almost thousand books in

great book especially for me recall nostalgia of tired immigrants and unfavorable circumstances 1391 45 starsOh my heart This was heartbreaking and beautifully written Finished this book about a month ago but it s taken me this long to write a review about it because I have such mixed feelings about it It was a deeply affecting novel but mostly not in a good way I really wanted to like it but the I think about what I didn t like about the book the it This is the sort of book White America reads to feel worldly Just like the spate of Native Americanop fiction in the late eighties this is overwhelmingly colonized literature in that it retends to reveal some aspect of the other culture but on closer inspection aside from the occasional tidbit it is a thoroughly western story firmly
