The kite runner is a book set in Afghanistan. It is about the two boys Amir and Hassan. Amir is wealthy and lives with his father. Hassan is the son of the man who works for Amir´s father. The first half of the book shows Amir and Hassan growing up together. You get an understanding of how Amir’s relationship is with Hassan and his father. You also get to see how Afghanistan was before the war. I like the book so far, I think that the writing is good and it is a interesting story.
