The Kite Runner was made by Khaled Hosseini. He has Afghanistan blood, but he was raised in USA. This book was unlike most books I like to read, it wasn’t intense at all, but it touched my heart deeply.

Amir was a 12 years old boy who lived in Kabul. His father was a great man, he called him Baba. They have a servant named Ali and his son Hassan who was a year younger than Amir. Amir and Hassan spent a lot of their time together. Although Hassan was only a maid, Baba treated him as equal as Amir. Amir felt jealous and uneasy each time Baba treated Hassan as same as he is. Hassan was an incredible boy. He was so loyal to Amir, he was brave and polite. He was the best kite runner in Kabul. Hassan’s mother ran away after she gave birth to Hassan.

In Afghanistan, they usually held kite tournament every winter. There would be a lot of kids with their kite and they would try to beat the other kid by cutting off their kite. There were two prides from this tournament. The winner, the last standing kite, and the one who catches the last kite that felt down from the tournament.
