PDF or EBOOK The Kite Runner ò Khaled Hosseini

Tful or well written but that is in no way unusual in bestsellers The problem is that Americans are going to use this book to justify their ignorance about the problems in the ast This book will make people feel better about themselves instead of helping them to think better about the worldFor an actually insightful touching view of the Afghan conflict I would suggest avoiding this bit of naive melodrama and looking up Emmanuel Guibert s The Photographer Finished this book about a month ago but it s taken me this long to write a review about it because I have such mixed feelings about it It was a deeply affecting novel but mostly not in a good way I really wanted to like it but the I think about what I didn t like about the book the it bothers me I ven downgraded this review from two stars to one from the time I started writing it to the time I finishedLet s start off with the good shall we The writing itself was pretty good when it comes to description in that I really felt the author s descriptions of scenes and in terms of moving the story forward That said it s not particularly challenging writing to readThe very best part of the novel is its warm depiction of the mixed culture of Afghanistan and how it conveys the picture of a real Afghanistan as a living place before the coup the Soviet invasion and above all the Taliban and the aftermath of September 11th created a fossilized image in the US of a failed state petrified in backwardness and locked in the role of a villain from central casting Now for the not so good Spoiler Alert because I don t think I m going to be able to complain about what I didn t like about the book without revealing major plot points Not to mention some of what follows will only make sense to someone who has read the book So if you don t want to spoil it for yourself read no further here be spoilersMy overwhelming motion throughout the book is feeling ntirely manipulated Of course one major reason for this is that the author s attempts at metaphor allegory and forshadowing are utterly ham fisted When he wants to make a point he hits you over the head with it hard Amir s split lip Hassan s cleft palate comes immediately resoundingly to mindBut I feel manipulated beyond that The members of the servant class in this story suffer tragic unspeakable calamities sometimes at the hands of our fine hero and yet the novel seems to xpect the reader to reserve her sympathies for the wronged privileged child beating his breast over the motional pain of living with the wounds he has selfishly inflicted upon others How why am I supposed to feel worse for him as he feels bad about what he has done to others Rather than feeling most sympathy 45 starsOh my heart This was heartbreaking and beautifully written In 2012 when I was Mathematics teacher at a private high school in Iran I had an Afghan student in my class Sometimes I discussed with my students about literature and I told them of novels and poem I found it very strange that my students had no interest in literature and ven sometimes looked with hostility to this discussion Days passed and much time was left to the Desert Kings (Deathlands, end of school year One day I saw Ali Afghan student came to me and had a booklet in his hand and I saw in hisyes several times as if he wanted to say something but he was uiet I waited for a little and after a few moments I began to speak He smiled and with a special Afghan accent he said I have written a story sir and became uiet again I said it s xcellent and I asked do you read books Yes sir he replied I asked what kind of books do you like Mark Twain and John Steinbeck and Jules Verne he answered I asked what you have written He replied I wrote a story about a 13 years old Afghan boy who immigrated to Iran I got his booklet and I read it in a week It was a dark story A week later we discussed again after class Ali invited me to go his house at night for reading books I was pleased and I greeted this plan When night arrived I took the kite runner and went to Ali s home When I ntered the house I saw a house with mud walls that has no rooms Exposed (Annika Bengtzon, except a small hull that there was a table in the middle of it and almost nine children were dining Of clothes of Ali s father it was obvious that he was a building worker and he welcomed me very sincerely I thanked him and I went to the storehouse in the corner of the yard that Ali had made it a place to be alone Ali took the book and with incredible passion began to read This process was repeated almostvery night for a week and we have read half of the Kite Runner Among pages of the book Ali informed me about Afghanistan Ooko explained of how twenty peoplentered Iran with a small car illegally and secretly Of how his classmates ridiculed him because of his Afghan accent of how he was forced to work in a brick burner factory all days after the school of how his dad has forced him to marry at the age of 13 in the summer Then Ali proceeded to speak that he wants to be a writer and prizes the Nobel award I saw in his room that he had Ferdowsi Omar Khayyam Hafiz and Rumi s book poem When I looked at his face I saw an unusual man who was ahead of his time and situation Ali said because Afghans have been banned of the registration in public schools in Tehran he is forced to register in a private school and now he and his mother must work hard to pay school chargesThe next week I went to class but I didn t see Ali When I asked the guys about him they replied that because his father hadn t citizenship card and passport he was arrested and all of them have deported to Afghanistan I was agitated that I couldn t continue reading Kite Runner never Even I felt so depressed and sad when I saw the book in bookstores Until this spring after three years I got a message in WhatsApp messenger from Ali that congratulated teachers day to me He was written that he married to a girl who was in love with her and they have a two months old girl baby He was written he is working at a bookstore in Kabul and he has read almost thousand books in three years He was written they have the 4G Internet in Kabul and I replied him it s supposed to we have 4G in Tehran as well soon When I received the message I could reread the Kite Runner It was a great book specially for me recall nostalgia of tired immigrants and unfavorable circumstances 1391 Due to the large number of negative comments I ve received including death wishes I ve added the following reuestPlease do not take this review or yourself too seriously when reading it I became what I am today at the age of twenty nine on a frigid overcast من روایتی آموزنده و روشنگر از نابسامانی‌های سیاسی و فرهنگی افغانستان شخصیت‌هایی پویا می‌آفریند که

the truth When you cheat you steal the right to fairness There is no act wretched than stealing I m going to be honest with you To read this book was a constant struggle not because I didn t like the writing style not because it was bad and not because it was boring No if anything Th This is the sort of book White America reads to feel worldly Just like the spate of Native American pop fiction in the lateighties this is overwhelmingly colonized literature in that it pretends to reveal some aspect of the other culture but on closer inspection aside from the occasional tidbit it is a thoroughly western story firmly In the Shadow of the Crown (Queens of England, ensconced in the western tradition Even those tidbits Hosseini gives are of such a vague degree that to be impressed by them one would have to have almost no knowledge of the history of Afghanistan nor the cultural conflicts raging there between the Shia and Sunni Muslims or how it formed a surrogate battleground for Russia and the United States in the Cold War or for Colonial conflicts in the centuries before Sadly for all the daily news reports about Afghanistan most people know very little of its historyHosseini s story is thickly foreshadowed and wraps up so neatly in thend that the reader will never have to worry about being surprised Every convenient coincidence that could happen does happen He does attempt to bring some Bark excitement to the story with dramatized violence but that s hardly a replacement for a well constructed plot He is also fond of forcing tension by creating a small conflict between two characters and then having them agonize over it for years despite the fact that it would beasy to fix and the characters have no reason to maintain the conflict And since the conflict does not grow or change over time On Such a Full Sea everything is uickly reduced to petty and repetitive reactionsHeven creates a cliched white devil character a literal sociopath and pedophile as the symbol for the vils of the Taliban This creates an odd conflict in the narrative since one of the main themes is that simple ineualities and pointless conflicts stem from Afghan tradition itself His indelicate inclusion of wealthy beautiful white power as the source of religious turmoil in the mid ast negates his assertion that the conflicts are caused by small mindedness The fact that this character seems to have the depth of motivation of a Disney villain also means that he does not work as a representation of the fundamental causes of colonial ineuality which tend to be Cannibal economic not personal The various mixed messages about the contributors to the ongoing Afghan conflict suggest that Hosseini does not have anything insightful to say about itPerhaps the worst part about this book is how much it caters to the ignorance of White America It will allow naive readers to feel better about themselves for feeling sympathy with the larger midast conflict but is also lets them retain a sense of superiority over the Muslims for their backwards classicist warlike ways In short it supports the condescending parental view that many Americans already have about the rest of the world And it does all this without revealing any understanding of the vast and vital Mastered (The Enforcers, economic concerns which make the greater midast so vitally important to the future of the worldIt is unfortunate that nowhere amongst this book s artfully dramatized violence and alternative praising and demonizing of the West is there the underlying sense of why this conflict is happening of what put it all into place and of why it will continue to drag us all down The point where it could turn sympathy into indignation or realization is simply absentThere is a bad joke on the internet showing a map of the world with the mid Man, Son of Man east replaced by a sea filled crater with the comment problem solved What this map fails to represent is that there is a reason the West keeps meddling in the affairs of the midast and that Alter Ego every time we do it creates another conflict because almostvery group who we decry as terrorists now were originally trained and armed by the US and Western powers to serve our conomic interestsAs long as we see xtremists as faceless sociopaths we can do nothing against them We must recognize that normal people fall down these paths and that Uncommon Wisdom everyone sees himself as being in the right Who is right the Westerner whose careless bomb kills a child or the Muslim s that doesThe point shouldn t be to separate the good Muslims from the bad Muslims because people aren t fundamentally good or bad They are fundamentally people Almost withoutxception they are looking out for their future their children and their communities Calling someone Unseen City evil merely means you have ceased to try understanding their point of view and decided instead to merely hate because it sasier to remain ignorant than to try to understandThis book isn t particularly insigh. خالد حسینی در اولین رمان خود به نام بادبادک‌باز به دستاوردی نائل آمده که فقط تعداد اندکی از نویسندگان معاصر به آن دست یافته‌اند نویسنده ض.
