I. Introduction

    The Kite Runner is the Afghan-American writer Khaled Hosseini’s first novel. It is also the first book written in English by the Afghanistan writer in American literature history. The book has won many significant awards. It is a powerful book, with no frills, no nonsense and just hard spare prose. On intimate account of family and friendship, betrayal and salvation that required to enlighten us, parts of The Kite Runner are unfamiliar and excruciating to read, yet the book in this entirety is written with love. Hosseini clearly loves his country as much as he hates what has become of it.
The Kite Runner is full of exoticism which is foreign to western readers. The author describes turbulent Afghanistan history spanning for over three decades, including Afghanistan civil war in 1978, the expiration of monarchy, the invasion of former Soviet Union, the northern Alliance, atrocity of Taliban, and the feud between Pashtun and Hazara. It also reflects the darkness of humanity which leads readers to pursue the nature of humanity and realize the kindness of humanity. This is a real story of Afghanistan. Hosseini was named 2006 Humanitarian of the Year by the U.S. Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees for the great impact brought by The Kite Runner. 浅析《追风筝的人》中风筝的象征意义:http://www.lwfree.cn/yingyu/20170523/7675.html
