The Kite Runner was a good book. This book showed off more facets of human nature then The Great Gatsby; which only showed the strive for money, and Heart of Darkness; which also only showed off the capitalistic nature of people. I believe the Kite Runner allowed people to see forgiveness, love, hatred, guilt, courage, and many more sides of a person's true personality. In this book Amir shows so many different characteristics that a true human has it allowed me to connect more to the book and understand the full meaning of all the characteristics listed above. For example Amir loved his father, his half-brother Hassan, and his wife Soraya so much he even overlooks there flaws- his wife being unfaithful, his father lying to him, and he even loves his servent when he was a child. This book also shows so many different levels of forgiveness and guilt it makes the story more like a reality.
The characteristic the author displayed the best was courage. How Amir went into dangerous parts of the world to save one little boy was very courageous. Sohrab was very courageous when he saved Amir from Assef just how Hassan saved Amir back in their childhood. Soraya and Amir adopting Sohrab was the best part of the book as well. I liked how the author did not make courage more glamorous like authors who write books about heros and knights. This author used courage in the most subtle ways and it still made the biggest impact on the entire book.
I annotated this book by creating a trail between the past and the future throughout the book, and I also looked at it as a way to better my writing. The author caught a perfect light when it came to personality traits in a true human being and I really liked that.
