The novella “The Kite Runner”, by Khaled Hosseini is about a character named Amir sharing his story to the world, the story of Afghanistan. However, the author had written this book because he had experienced and felt everything Amir had in this novel at a point in his life. Khaled Hosseini had also depicted the involvement of the cultural and social setting, through his writing. The writer saw himself as Amir and revealed his childhood of dreams in Afghanistan.

Khaled Hosseini’s first novel The Kite Runner published in 2003 is a sensational tale of Afghanistan caught in a devastating battle between opposing forces, fighting for power and authority over the land. 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 1970s to the post-Taliban near present. In addition to its historical background, the novel is also based on Hosseini 's personal memories of growing up in the Wazir Akbar Khan section of Kabul and a subsequent migration to USA and adapting to life in California. The nightmarish saga of war torn Kabul is told in a cool and detached manner, a voice that provides a growing sense of tension and crises desperately stretched to bring to reconciliation as the story approaches its end.
One of the greatest impacts the novel The Kite Runner had was the insight it gave readers into some of the less visible aspects of afghan culture. I choose to analyze the passage on page 105 of The Kite Runner to show the reader how the first-person perspective, plot, and use of figurative language are tools used perpetuate the theme of irony present throughout the novel and by doing so give the reader a better appreciation for the use of such irony in the novel. I think that part of the key to understanding some of the tragic irony present in The Kite Runner is taking note of its presentation in the first-person perspective. The novel is first person throughout which means that of the plot we as readers see while mostly factual is never objective
Storytelling is a way of expressing one’s imagination through fanciful adventures and serve a variety of purposes. One important reason is to capture a special moment and endure it, mostly because it unites people and of course, entertains. In Yann Martel’s and Tim Burton’s Big Fish, storytelling is seen as more important than the truth. Throughout the novel Life of Pi and the film Big Fish, it can be argued that the truth is intertwined with the lies in each story to form a new kind of truth. For instance, Pi retells his story to the two Japanese reporters in a way in which he changes the animals to humans already encountered through the movie and introduces a different version of the truth.
In his debut novel ´The Kite Runner´ Khaled Hosseini, an Afghan, seems to want to remind us readers around the world that the Afghanistan that we see on the news is not a true portrayal of the culture rich country. The novel follows the life of Amir, an upper-class Afghan who grew up in Afghanistan and who later moved to the United States during the Soviet invasion. Although the narrator and protagonist of the novel, Amir´s life is not the sole aspect of the novel but instead it is his relationship with his servant Hassan and the consequences of that which leads the narrative and the plot. We are shown how Amir and Hassan grew up as the best of friends almost as brothers who “fed from the same breast” (Hosseini, 2005, p.11).

The Kite Runner is a book about the life of Amir and the people around him. The book starts off with Amir at a very young age and follows him through adulthood. The book also has a movie adaptation by Marc Forster. They follow the same story line but handle certain scenarios in a very different manner. The movie (like most book-to-movie adaptations) shortens certain scenes, cuts out entire scenes, and seems to be for a generally younger audience as it censors certain scenes.
