See Featured Authors Answering Questions. Is this a YA book? If not is there anything in it that makes it inappropriate for teens? Phil Laurette It depends on the young adult. There are a number of disturbing events including rape, brutal beatings and public executions. These things are …more It depends on the young adult.
These things are uncomfortable for adults to read and although it is a work of fiction it is written in such a graphic and believable voice that it is hard to separate yourself from the idea that it is based on actual events. You really have to decide for yourself whether your young adult is mature enough to digest such possible realities. I read it myself before allowing my kids to read it and for me my 15 year old could handle it but many could not. Definitely not a “fun” novel to read purely for pleasure.
This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [If Amir had known that Hassan was his half-brother at the beginning of the novel, do you think his reaction would have been different when Hassan had been raped? Sam In most cultures, family loyalty rests above friendship. Even though Amir did not identify Hassan as his brother, their bond could not have been …more In most cultures, family loyalty rests above friendship.
Even though Amir did not identify Hassan as his brother, their bond could not have been anything but brotherly. In short, I think Amir’s reaction would have been the same. For one, he only saw Hassan as a servant, not a friend or brother, and treated him like one too. In addition, Amir only wanted people to accept him and give him attention.
O Caçador de Pipas — Reader Q&A
He already recieved that from Hassan ,because of Hassan’s unwavering loyalty, and there was nothing else he needed. Furthermore, he already knew he was not a virtuous person. For example, his treatment of Hassan, when deriding him for his illiteracy, and his use of toys and food instead of apologies to reduce his guilt.
Finally, Amir’s cowardice was part of his nature. He grew up in spendor and did not know the hardships others had to face.
Dee grew up hiding from his problems in imaginary lands and fiction. He had no real grasp of reality so he feared everything. Did reading The Kite Runner, being a book about traumatised characters, help you with your own trauma? If the book influenced you in any way on a personal level, would you please share how?
To me it resonated with an ugly part of humanity and this was the prevailing feeling I had in the end. I had read very good reviews …more Actually, no. I had read very good reviews about the book and so, I decided to go back and read it a second time to test its reflection into me. So, unfortunately not only did it not help me see possible knots in my life in a warmer positive light, it, on the contrary, left me with the feeling that some lives are doomed to be wasted.
Overall, I was left with the sense that once within the hateful iron bars of a country, a community, a miserable life, there is nothing you can do about it. You know, it might seem strange but would you, please, give a read to ‘The Girl You Would regret Not Knowing’, the book i published several days ago? My traumatized characters eventually found their way to light. This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [I’m confused on the circumstances of Baba being Hassan’s father.
Did he impregnate Hassan’s mother intentionally because Ali was sterile, or because Baba had a tryst with Hassan’s mother?

Is this even fully explained? Jeffrey This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [ I don’t believe Baba impregnated Hassan’s mother on Ali’s behalf.

That’s not supported in the text and seems contrary to the culture, though I’m no expert. I concluded that Baba, being in a higher social and economic class, could take her sexually and he did.
Like Evelyn said, I think that conclusion is supported by some passages about honor and pride when the fact is revealed. Lipas respectfully disagree with Evelyn, however, about Hassan’s mom seducing Baba. I don’t see support for that conclusion.
That said, I have questions about another passage where soldiers tease Hassan about knowing his mother sexually.
Maybe that was just banter, but the way it’s written I think there’s a hint that they really did know her and said something to Hassan because they knew exactly who his mother was. I watched the movie a few years ago and I can still remember everything that happened.
Is there anything that was left out? Should I read it anyway? I’m a bot hesitant because the movie made me bawl out my eyes. I could see the puffiness the next day.

The book provides better descriptions and the relationships between characters are much more developed.
I cacadoor like I was alongside Amir and Hassan through everything, which isn’t something you can get through the movie. Load 5 more questions.
