The Kite Runner

by Eli
(Los Angeles, CA)

Growing up, no book had a bigger impact on my life that The Kite Runner. This book centers around a young boy named Amir who at the time his family was of money. The family had servants and one of the servant boys happened to be Amir's best friend, Hassan. During the novel, Hassan happens to be the "kite runner" for Amir and knows exactly where the kite lands and retrieves it. During a competition, as Hassan is going to retrieve the kite, he gets violently beaten and raped, all while Amir just watched. This guilt weighs heavily on Amir until Hassan and his father have to leave.


This book was especially important because it taught me that the world can be a cruel world. At a very young age I learned that not everyone is good and that there are people who are going to hurt you. But what was just as interesting was the act of redemption. Many years later Amir is asked to save the son of Hassan, who is kept captive by the same person who raped Hassan many years ago. Amir knows he has to go back and save the boy. So the second part of the book focuses on Amir and his attempt to rescue his old friend's son. This had just a big of an impact in my life. People will do wrong, but never rule them out from doing good. People make mistakes, but it was important to learn from them, and that is exactly what Amir was able to prove through this book.
