When writing a story, of any length, the most valuable part of the story are the characters. They drive the narrative and relate the story to a reader. Beyond the characters however, their relationships to others are perhaps even more important. Baldwin takes the relationship between two brothers, a relationship that is often rife with disagreements and strife, and elevates the story by relating the relationship to the struggle of people with different values. By bringing in the human aspect of a sibling relationship, he is able to voice his view on people of different vocational values.
Writers take current events at the time and create a story to inspire their readers. The readers often reflect on how the writer’s message could affect them personally and possibly their role in society. The location of the writer may also be a factor in their literature.

When directly affected by a major event, our words and emotions could provide a very powerful message.

Kachur claims that vital information from the narrator is omitted because it seems not important to readers, but that same information is the one that describes the motives and the challenges presented by the author. This essay really caught my attention in ways that I would never imagine. Kachur argues that the narrator obsession is based in “father-on-son incest”.

He does this to get the reader engaged in the story and want to read more.
The Kite Runner is a book written as fiction yet possibly read as reality; some readers might even question the veracity of the events narrated throughout the story before realizing its categorization as a novel. This comes exclusively due to the story’s evident partial factual basis, even when said facts only reside in the Afghan and American history cited in the book. But how different can readers truly interpret the text? Knowledge of the novel’s internal and external context can help a reader understand more about the book, and hence possibly even find new hidden meaning in passages that were before just fiction; however, the writer’s understanding of his readers might also help him guide said audience towards a specific message. Is the book more than it seeks to feign?
