The Kite Runner is a very interesting book. Personally, I think it´s well written and easy to read. Also, the author of the book is great at grabbing the reader’s attention throughout the novel. One of the most important parts of a story, is the characters. So now I’m going to briefly comment on them.
Amir is the narrator and the protagonist of the story. He is a privileged boy due to his father being wealthy and his ethnic background. Amir seems like an intelligent, selfish and cynical person. He likes to get it in his way regardless of the consequences it causes others. Amir lives with his father, Baba and their servant, Ali and his son, Hassan.
Hassan is a big part of the story as well. He is brave, selfless, kind and always loyal to his only and best friend, Amir. In the mornings while Amir prepares for school, Hassan reads Amir´s books and makes breakfast. He also helps Ali with the chores and grocery shopping. Hassan and Ali are Hazaras. Hazara is an ethnic group which is lower ranked in the society.
The wealthy and well-respected businessman is known as Baba. He is strong, brave and willing to risk his life for what he believes in. Baba has a good heart even though Amir doesn’t feel loved by him as a child.
