The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini is a novel that one will never forget. It displays scenes which are horrific and scenes with are positive. Thye scenes that are completely opposite in that sense somehow relate and combine. For example on page 76 Hassan, Amirs bestfriend/servant/brother experiences a horrible rape by Assef. Amir expresses himself as he says "In the end I ran." On the last page Amirs last words are "I ran." In the end, he ran because he was letting his past go to feel content with himself. The themes in this book are almost endless due to the many topics he portrays. Topics include silence, redemption, guilt, cruelty, trust, friendship, love, fear, loyalty and they just continue to go on and on. Hosseini is an amazing author who combines so many relations to people through his characters that readers can really see what it is like to be in Afganistan. This novel is so inspirational and moving because of the art used to portray themes.
