Hosseini regards him as a flat character in terms of development; he is "a lovely guy and you root for him and you love him but he's not complicated".

He was adopted as a child by Baba's father after his parents were killed by a drunk driver. Each year it was a tradition for the Afghan community to hold a festival of kites during the winter and each year The kite runner book single victor would arise amongst hundreds, being the only kite left in the sky after a long day of cutting. Were you surprised to learn about the racial tension between the Pashtuns and Hazaras in Afghanistan? The orphanage director tells Amir how to find the official, and Farid secures an appointment at his home by claiming to have "personal business" with him. As a teenager, he is a neighborhood bully and is enamored with Hitler and Nazism. Why did Amir act so hatefully toward Hassan after he saw him get raped?

Amir goes to the game, and at half-time, the Taliban put a man and a woman in holes in the ground and the official Amir is looking for stones them to death. The story of The Kite Runner is fictional, but it is rooted in real political and historical events ranging from the last days of the Afghan monarchy in the s to the post-Taliban near present. Similarly, I became attached to Hassan and his father. Afterwards, Amir keeps distant from Hassan; his feelings of guilt prevent him from interacting with the boy.
