The openings launch the author’s narratives significantly. Certainly authorial intentions emerge through a complex narrative, plot and subplot. Through three diverse texts we are able to see whether each plot’s storyline is really “the shocker.” “The Kite Runner” does contain a very complex plot as you readalong you are able to see how the story goes back many years illustrating how Amir begins to remember specific details which enable him to see the bigger picture and see each situation more clearly, for example we learn that Hassan and Amir are brothers, and how many difficulties Amir has faced to get to where he is today.

During the 19th century, marriage was generally based on social standards and materialistic commodities rather than sentimental attraction. Pride and Prejudice is a novel that analyzes women and their contradicting attitudes towards marriage. Charlotte Lucas is a character that believes happiness is not a necessity as long as she is financially stable. Similarly, Jane Bennet is practical about her economic state while still recognizing the value of true love. In contrast, Lydia Bennet is young, immature and blinded by the idea of being admired. Elizabeth Bennet, on the other hand, refuses to marry for money, and only considers a marriage with mutual compatibility. Consequently, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice focuses on women and their distinct outlooks regarding marriage throughout this era.

There are several differences and similarities between books and their movies. There are many similarities between pride and prejudice book and movie. First, the characters were represented in their similar personalities and physical traits.

Being an immigrant is about leaving one’s native country; but it is also, more importantly, about adapting and assimilating to a new culture. Relocating to a new country could sometimes cause a life-transforming moment. In 2003, when Khaled Hosseini published the mainstream fiction story, “The Kite Runner,” he was an extremely successful M.D. (Medical Doctor) who was practicing internal medicine. Throughout his novel, he describes different characters which possess different characteristics and personalities. As illustrated in the book, Baba and his family moved to the United States to get a better life, and they quickly started to assimilate the American culture.

In society of the Regency period, every aspect of one’s life was greatly analyzed and examined. Any deviation from the set norm was considered uncivilized. In a time period where reputation was the most memorable part of a family's life, being considered uncivilized would entirely ruin their standing. Some may say that all of the characters were simply fighting to be a normal part of society; Mr. and Mrs. Bennet’s desires ended up with disagreeable results, each of the daughters deviated from society’s expectations, and Elizabeth did not allow any social norms to stand in her way of marriage for love. These examples exhibit the characters’ struggle to not be average and compliant members of society.
