As a young boy growing up in Afghanistan in the seventies, Amir is a disappointment to his father. But I think the best bit about the kite runner is its sense of fate and justice, of good overcoming evil in the end, despite all odds. In war, people are often forced to make great sacrifices, and the young Amir himself commits an act of betrayal, towards his best friend Hassan no less, which will haunt him for the rest of his life.
I knew about The War on Terror. Their uncommon bond is torn by the hatred that the Pashtuns Amir's ethnic group have for the Hazaras.
