E Here though the story is clearly meant to be about some kind f redemption but I found Amir so distasteful that I simply wasn t interested in his redemption The focus f the story was entirely n how Amir s life had been corrupted by the despicable things he d done when the things he d done were entirely part and parcel A Killing Tide of the positionf power and privilege he Shivers: four in one: The Enchanted Attic/A Ghastly Shade of Green/The Locked Room - The Awful Apple Orchard occupiedver HassanWhich brings me to my second point the insufferable current L'Oracle de votre subconscient : I-Ching, Le Livre des transformations of paternalism that runs throughout the story The membersf the servant and poorer classes are consistently portrayed as saintly absurdly self sacrificing Weirdos of the Universe, Unite! one dimensional characters Regardlessf what terrible things befall them they are shown to have nothing but their masters interests at heart Granted it may be unlikely that the powerless would be Les Naufrags d'Ythaq T03 : Le soupir des toiles overtly talking back and setting their masters straight however the novel gives no indication that they even have any private wishesf recrimination The Royal Joust or muchf a private life for that matter Given this portrayal it is even difficult for me to muster any interest in Amir s suffering But to suggest that perhaps we re misinterpreting the servants subservient attitudes because we approach the story from a different time place American Maharajah or culture is simply to engage in a cultural relativism borneut f and perpetuating the very same paternalismTo clarify my point let s look at some comparable examples from US culture Consider any ne f a huge number f films such as Driving Miss Daisy Clara s Heart Bagger Vance Squeamish About Sushi: And other Food Adventures in Japan or Ghost all simply continuing a tradition that reaches back to Shirley Temple s days in which noble servantsr similar helpers have absolutely no concern in their lives ther than making sure the wealthy people they are serving have happy fulfilled lives while they themselves never seem to have any f their The Quarterback's Crush own personal hopes desires triumphs tragediesr even any hint f a home family personal r romantic life at all Their total happiness is bound up entirely with serving the lives f their rich counterparts It is this uality present throughout Hosseini s book that bothers me mostIn the end however a beautifully written story could have vercome these criticisms Achtung! Cthulhu or at the very least I would have been able to temperr counter my points above with lavish praise for the writing However here again the novel falls flat It is not particularly well written As some Infamy other commenters have also pointedut the storytelling is uite heavy handed and the narrative suffers from implausible plot twists and uncanny coincidences and a writing style that relies far too heavily General P.T.G. Beauregard on cliches andbvious literary devicesI wish that I could say I liked the book To answer another commenter s uestion I haven t read A Thousand Splendid Suns I m afraid I wasn t particularly motivated to do so after my reaction to this ne However I do believe as that commenter also suggests that there is something to be gained from the debate and discussion that the book has inspired 45 starsOh my heart This was heartbreaking and beautifully written In 2012 when I was Mathematics teacher at a private high school in Iran I had an Afghan student in my class Sometimes I discussed with my students about literature and I told them f novels and poem I found it very strange that my students had no interest in literature and even sometimes looked with hostility to this discussion Days passed and much time was left to the end The Boy and the Blue Moon 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 kindf books do you like Mark Twain and John Steinbeck and Jules Verne he answered I asked what you like Mark Twain and John Steinbeck and Jules Verne he answered I asked what have written He replied I wrote a story about a 13 years ld 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 pleased and I greeted this plan When night arrived I took the kite

White America reads to feel worldly Just like the spate f Native American pop fiction in the late eighties this is verwhelmingly colonized literature in that it pretends to reveal some aspect Dead Man Riding (Nell Bray, of thether culture but n closer inspection aside from the ccasional tidbit it is a thoroughly western story firmly ensconced in the western tradition Even those tidbits Hosseini gives are f such a vague degree that to be impressed by them ne would have to have almost no knowledge Pontius Pilate of the historyf Afghanistan nor the cultural conflicts raging there between the Shia and Sunni Muslims Livin de Life or how it formed a surrogate battleground for Russia and the United States in the Cold Warr for Colonial conflicts in the centuries before Sadly for all the daily news reports about Afghanistan most people know very little Aeralis of its historyHosseini s story is thickly foreshadowed and wraps up so neatly in the end that the reader will never have to worry about being surprised Every convenient coincidence that could happen does happen He does attempt to bring some excitement to the story with dramatized violence but that s hardly a replacement for a well constructed plot He is also fondf forcing tension by creating a small conflict between two characters and then having them agonize Be CentsAble: How to Cut Your Household Budget in Half over it for years despite the fact that it would be easy to fix and the characters have no reason to maintain the conflict And since the conflict does not growr change Academic Inbreeding and Mobility in Higher Education: Global Perspectives over time everything is uickly reduced to petty and repetitive reactionsHe even creates a cliched white devil character a literal sociopath and pedophile as the symbol for the evilsf the Taliban This creates an Radio Crackling, Radio Gone odd conflict in the narrative sincene The Legend of Joaquin Murrieta: California's Gold Rush Bandit of the main themes is that simple ineualities and pointless conflicts stem from Afghan tradition itself His indelicate inclusionf wealthy beautiful white power as the source Limey Gumshoe of religious turmoil in the mid east negates his assertion that the conflicts are caused by small mindedness The fact that this character seems to have the depthf motivation Maritime Academy Graduate: Memoir Of A Third Mate of a Disney villain also means that he does not work as a representationf the fundamental causes f colonial ineuality which tend to be economic not personal The various mixed messages about the contributors to the ngoing Afghan conflict suggest that Hosseini does not have anything insightful to say about itPerhaps the worst part about this book is how much it caters to the ignorance Trouble Looking for a Place to Happen of White America It will allow naive readers to feel better about themselves for feeling sympathy with the larger mid east conflict but is also lets them retain a sensef superiority ver the Muslims for their backwards classicist warlike ways In short it supports the condescending parental view that many Americans already have about the rest f the world And it does all this without revealing any understanding Harcourt School Publishers Collections of the vast and vital economic concerns which make the greater mid east so vitally important to the futuref the worldIt is unfortunate that nowhere amongst this book s artfully dramatized violence and alternative praising and demonizing From Paella to Porridge: A Farewell to Mallorca and a Scottish Adventure of the West is there the underlying sensef why this conflict is happening On Toby's Terms of what put it all into place andf why it will continue to drag us all down The point where it could turn sympathy into indignation r realization is simply absentThere is a bad joke n the internet showing a map Max Lerner: Pilgrim in the Promised Land of the world with the mid east replaced by a sea filled crater with the comment problem solved What this map fails to represent is that there is a reason the West keeps meddling in the affairsf the mid east and that every time we do it creates another conflict because almost every group who we decry as terrorists now were riginally trained and armed by the US and Western powers to serve ur economic interestsAs long as we see extremists as faceless sociopaths we can do nothing against them We must recognize that normal people fall down these paths and that everyone sees himself as being in the right Who is right the Westerner whose careless bomb kills a child Indiscretion or the Muslim s that doesThe point shouldn t be to separate the good Muslims from the bad Muslims because people aren t fundamentally goodr bad They are fundamentally people Almost without exception they are looking ut for their future their children and their communities Calling someone evil merely means you have ceased to try understanding their point f view and decided instead to merely hate evil merely means you have ceased to try understanding their point f view and decided instead to merely hate it s easier to remain ignorant than to try to understandThis book isn t particularly insightful r well written but that is in no way unusual in bestsellers The problem is that Americans are going to use this book to justify their ignorance about the problems in the east This book will make people feel better about themselves instead Soul Dust of helping them to think better about the worldFor an actually insightful touching viewf the Afghan conflict I would suggest avoiding this bit The Dyfed Enigma: Unidentified Flying Objects in West Wales of naive melodrama and looking up Emmanuel Guibert s The Photographer 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 bothers me I even downgraded this review from two stars tone from the time I started writing it to the time I finishedLet s start 6S: The 6S Review, Issue 2 off with the good shall we The writing itself was pretty good when it comes to description in that I really felt the author s descriptionsf scenes and in terms Blackbird of moving the story forward That said it s not particularly challenging writing to readThe very best partf the novel is its warm depiction Midwest Maize: How Corn Shaped the U.S. Heartland of the mixed culturef Afghanistan and how it conveys the picture Surly Bonds of a real Afghanistan as a living place before the coup the Soviet invasion and above all the Taliban and the aftermathf September 11th created a fossilized image in the US Sex, Lies, and Videotape of a failed state petrified in backwardness and locked in the rolef a villain from central casting Now for the not so good Spoiler Alert because I don t think I m going to be able to complain about what I didn t like about the book without revealing major plot points Not to mention some The Sanford Guide to Hepatitis Therapy 2016-2017 of what follows willnly make sense to someone who has read the book So if you don t want to spoil it for yourself read no further here be spoilersMy Syzygy: Reflections on the Monastery of the Seven Rays overwhelming emotion throughout the book is feeling entirely manipulated Of coursene major reason for this is that the author s attempts at metaphor allegory and forshadowing are "utterly ham fisted When he wants to make a point he hits you " ham fisted When he wants to make a point he hits you the head with it hard Amir s split lip Hassan s cleft palate comes immediately resoundingly to mindBut I feel manipulated beyond that The members f the servant class in this story suffer tragic unspeakable calamities sometimes at the hands f Whore Stories: A Revealing History of the World's Oldest Profession our fine hero and yet the novel seems to expect the reader to reserve her sympathies for the wronged privileged child beating his breastver the emotional pain The Paper Wife of living with

through absolutely no fault f their We, the People: Of Earth Elders own must suffer not justnce Black Marxism: The Making of the Black Radical Tradition or twice but again and again Of course this elevationf identification with the woundedflawed hero goes hand in hand with an absolutely detestable portrayal مترو of the membersf the servant class as being at their utmost happiest when they are

not so much him taking a stand because he feels driven to do sor feels that he must Rather he acts with very little self agency at all he is A Month of Sundays or less merely carried forward into events Andver in the end it is Sohrab Hassan again who saves him I finished the novel resenting Amir Hassan again who saves him I finished the novel resenting Amir even intensely resenting the author for trying to make the reader think she s supposed to care about Amir than about anyone else in the storyA couple Evangeline, a Master For Tonight Companion Novel other points I m wondering ifne theme Beneath the Jolly Roger of the novel is that there are no definitive happy endings no single immutable momentsf epiphany Merzbook: The Pleasuredome of Noise or redemption Because Amir s moral triumph such as it isver Assef is so short lived He manages to crash horrifically nly a week r two later when he goes back Pig on his word to Sohrab about his promise not to send him to anrphanageAnd lastly I

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 painful 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 f 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 r 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 Kaleidoscope 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 painful read I still wanted to know what would happen nextAmir s and Hassan s story was so horrible appalling powerful and beautiful at the same time It left me completely broken and raw and I think my emotions are still allver the place So if my review sounds a little incoherent and illogical you can blame it The Four Racketeers on the book hangover I m currently suffering from XD But we were kids who had learned to crawl together and no history ethnicity societyr religion was going to change that eitherThe plotAmir and Hassan are best friends who grew up together and live in Kabul They do almost everything together and ne f their favourite hobbies is kite running One day there is a local kite fighting tournament Amir is determined to win and with the help Phantoms Monsters: Mysterious Encounters of Hassan he is even able to achieve his goal The victoryf the tournament comes with a high price though and in the end their moment Smithereens of happiness isn tnly short lived but also comes to an abrupt end What happens after the competition destroys their lifelong friendship and shakes the foundations The Book of Not Knowing: Exploring the True Nature of Self, Mind, and Consciousness of their trust the coursef their lives changing as they try to deal with the repercussions Dark Diversions of a single day It may be unfair but what happens in a few days sometimes even a single day can change the coursef a whole lifetime Amir he saidThe characters Beware there are plenty f spoilers lying ahead f you Amir I pretended I was reading from the book flipping pages regularly but I had abandoned the text altogether taken Yamashita's Ghost: War Crimes, Macarthur's Justice, and Command Accountability over the story and made up mywn Hassan Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures with Wolf-Birds of course wasblivious to this To him the words n the page were a scramble f codes indecipherable mysterious Words were secret doorways and I held all the keys Puh what to say about him I think I never disliked a protagonist as much as I disliked the narrator f 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 past haunted him and in the end it actually made him a better person A person that stood up to bad people and a 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 f this book I was even proud Lord of The Heart: Regency Romance 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 sleepingn the couch is Hassan s son He s my nephew That s what you tell people when they ask They were all staring at me And ne thing General Sahib I said You will never again refer to him as a "Hazara boy in my presence He has a name and it s Sohrab I waited 331 pages " boy in my presence He has a name and it s Sohrab I waited 331 pages that to happen XDHassan Then Hassan did pick up a pomegranate He walked toward me He pened it and crushed it against his Love! Valour! Compassion! 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 hisnly 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 Scream out about Sohrab srdeal I was than just heartbroken I was devastated I know Hassan must have turned Kumiko and the Dragon over in his grave and I felt so so so damn sorry for what happened to bothf them Baba The problem Probabilities on the Heisenberg Group: Limit Theorems and Brownian Motion of course was that Baba saw the world in black and white You can t love a 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 a person that was described as seeing the world in black and white he actually was all different kindsf grey and in some way that made him extremely likeable and disagreeable at the same time lol I think he was a very contradictory person and after finding ut 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 right place "ask him where his shame is they spoke "him where his shame is They spoke 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 f peace And now fifteen years after I d buried him I was learning that Baba had been a thief And a thief f 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 to pick up the pieces He was just ten Damn it I don t understand how people 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 n 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 they 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 ut in a long wheezy cry I m so dirty And Full Of Sin full f sin OMG that beautiful ending That hopeful amazing and beautiful ending It killed me it was the death f 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 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 f Amir s hometown I hated the violence I hated the war I hated to read about the many A Good Indian Wife orphans the hungry childrenn the street I hated the way Amir acted when he was younger She had a large purple bruise Stage Fright 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 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 braveryf 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 everything possible to stand up for their 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 very powerful book It 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 ur world
