  • The kite runner tells a story of a young boy from Kabul, who’s actions and own selfishness result in him hurting those around him.
  • Amir witness’ a group of boys sexually abusing his servant/friend, Hassan, however he tells no one as he wants the kite Hassan has ran, so that he can gain his fathers affection.
  • Afterward, Amir and Hassan keep a distance from each other, Amir reacts indifferently because he feels ashamed by what he has done.

Five years later, the Soviet Union invades Afghanistan. Amir and Baba escape to Pakistan and then to California, where Amir and Baba, who lived in luxury in an expensive mansion in Afghanistan, settle in a run-down apartment and Baba begins work at a gas station. Amir eventually takes classes at a local community college to develop his writing skills after graduating from high school at age twenty.

  • They also earn extra money by selling used goods at a flea market, this is where Amir meets his wife, Soraya.
  • Rahim khan invites Amir back to Pakistan so that he can collect sohrab from the orphanage and take care of him.

Amir eventually takes Sohrab back to America, however Sohrab is so emotionally distraught that he isn’t willing to speak, until Amir is teaching him how to fly a kite, when he smiles.

  • “I see America has infused you with her optimism. But there is such a thing as God's will.” To Amir.
