I love books like these because these kind of books tell true stories of teens that have experienced certain things that made an impact in their life
I found it a bit melodramatic and forced, verging on the level of soap opera towards the end. In my opinion the author tried to over-explain and analyze the tangled relationship between Amir, Hassan and Baba, instead of letting readers come to their own conclusions. Most of the characters, with the exception of Baba, seemed underdeveloped - Hassan especially was a flat note, someone whose character was compelling only because of what was done to him. Still, I enjoyed the characterization of Baba and his tumultuous relationship with Amir, rooted in machismo and guilt. The little details about Afghanistani culture and life were fascinating, particularly the kite contests and flea market politics. Not the most sophisticated novel ever written, but still a good airplane read.
