I think I understand the sport of kite running a little better. But I was extremely disturbed and disgusted for poor Hassan. Like the author went way too much into detail I wish I didn't read that. And Amir is an idiot for not doing something about it!!!! Gosh
i agree bailey!! that was completley disturbing.
I agree with the comment about Amir, he's not only stupid but selfish and he disgust me. And I think the author goes into detail about many things that don't even matter, some points in the book seem completely irrelevant (idek if that's spellled right oops). I understand kite running sort of except for cutting the kite down and I feel sorry for Hassan in every way possible):
I completely agree here. Amir is stupid and selfish. I also agree about the writing. I feel like the author sort of digresses, he goes into detail about things that aren't necessary. but I'm still confused lol.
i understand this book a little more than i did in the beginning but not completely. the names are still confusing me & i think the author goes way too much in detail on some topics! for example, like Hassan. that was a little too much! im not a big fan on this book.
I don't see the point of them kite contest thingy, like it honestly seems slightly boring and long. This book has become much more enjoyable and a little easier to read. And when they say "cut him", how does one kite cut another, I don't understand. It makes me a little mad that Amir is kinda mean and doesn't look at Hassan as all that much, Hassan seems like he would do anything for Amir and just loves him so much. I HATE Amir as a person/character, whatever. And I ever so agree that what Assef said about Amir and his friendship with Hassan is true... and honestly if I had to do THAT much to win over my father, see my "friend" (idek what else to call them) get raped, I would say F'it. I can live wihtout my fathers love. WHO WOULD JUST WATCH SOMEONE GET RAPED!?!?!?!?! Why does Amir feel so sorry for himself?? HE is the butt person, maybe he should stop being so selfish and people would like him more.
okay so when I first started reading this I was like aww amir and Hassan the besties yay but then it started talking about how Amir's dad didn't hnderstand him and how he liked hassan so I felt bad for Amir. all he wanted was to make his father happy. but I honestly cannot feel bad for Amir whatsoever. like how can you call yourself anyone's..friend.. I guess if you're going to sit and watch.. that.. go down. like wtf that's disgusting. anyways. I'm confused still but at the same time I'm understanding.
Yeah I feel the same way. Like he treats Hassan awful when all Hassan has ever been to him is loyal.
This part of the story was very interesting. I didn't know how to handle it. Hassan trusts Amir so much but Amir continues to let him down. Kind of ironic
It's more interesting than it was when I first started reading it. Some of the parts are really boring and I just kind of skim through them but I hate how loyal and nice Hassan is to Amir. Hassan seems like a really good friend who deserves a better friendship than Amirs.
I agree. Hassan and Amir have been friends all their life, how could Amir just do that to him?
This was just disturbing for me. How could Amir do that?! I think it really says a lot about his character. Not only did he not help Hassan, but in the first section it talked about how Hassan would always take the blame for shining the mirror at the neighbors even though it was Amir's idea. It seems like Amir keeps throwing Hassan under the bus. I really hope that changes.
I agree that does say something about his character. Hassan was always taking blame for Amir
I am still not getting use to the names. But I don't know why Amir did that to his friend Hassan. Like at the beginning they were like best friends or whatever.
I was pretty disturbed Hassan was in shock and I don't think it was his fault that he did nothing about the rape
The part where Hassan got raped was kinda weird. Also the fact that Amir just stood there and watched was really weird
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
