The story was inspired by a news report about Afghanistan.

You might be wondering how the book was inspired. Well, it all started with a news report about Afghanistan.

The report was about a boy named Hassan who was raped by his father's friend Sohrab. The Taliban took him to prison and then the Taliban killed the boy's father because he refused to give up their names.

The author of The Kite Runner said that he wanted to show how a child can be abused by his or her parents so badly and they don't even know it. He also wanted to show how people who commit these crimes are not always punished for them, which is why he wrote about the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Hosseini grew up in Afghanistan, but his family moved to America when he was 15.

So where does Hosseini come from? He was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, but moved to the United States at age 15 after his father was appointed as a diplomat. Although he grew up speaking Persian and Dari, he did not learn English until he attended high school in California. After graduating from college there, Hosseini went on to become an English teacher in Los Angeles before pursuing his writing career full-time.

His first book was The Kite Runner, which became an international bestseller and has been translated into 44 languages since its publication in 2003 (you can read an excerpt here). It tells the story of Amir, who returns to Afghanistan following 9/11 for a number of reasons: for one thing, he wants to rekindle his friendship with Hassan—the boy who used to run kites with him as children—but also because he must confront his past actions in order to move forward with his life.

The Kite Runner became an international bestseller, and Hosseini has since written two more novels: A Thousand Splendid Suns (2007), which won the 2008 Quill Award for Fiction, and And the Mountains Echoed (2013)

He still lives in the San Francisco area, his home has been pelted with eggs because of the book's rape scene.

If you've read The Kite Runner, you might be surprised to learn that author Khaled Hosseini still lives in the San Francisco area. After all, he writes about Afghanistan and Pakistan—two countries that are opposite sides of the world from us. But it turns out he's just as close as you are! His home has been pelted with eggs because of a controversial scene in The Kite Runner (though this is not unusual for authors).

Khaled hasn't shied away from controversy: he's been vocal about his support for gay rights and other issues such as domestic violence. He doesn't want to isolate himself like other authors have done—and we think this is great!

Khaled Hosseini is also a family man. He has two kids and a wife who have followed him from country to country as he's pursued his dream of being an author. We're glad he's found success with The Kite Runner because it means more people will get to know about Afghanistan and Pakistan through Khaled's stories.

Hosseini said the book is "a metaphor for the U.S.'s relationship with Afghanistan."

The book is about the United States' relationship with Afghanistan, but it also serves as a metaphor for the U.S.'s relationship with the Middle East and Islam in general. Hosseini has said that he aimed to explore "the idea of co-existence [between] people who have been brought together by war."

The title itself alludes to this theme: "kite" refers to kites flown during festivals in Afghanistan, and "runner" refers to boys who run through streets flying these kites as part of a competition. This parallels how Amir and Hassan's friendship allows them both to escape being trapped by fate (or rather, their respective parents). The fact that they are flying kites is also significant: while they come from different social classes and backgrounds, their love for each other transcends these differences so much so that they can fly together like two kites, side by side.

Hosseini's novel explores the nature of good and evil, and the redemption of humanity through love, compassion and forgiveness. It is a story of family and brotherhood, of friendship and betrayal, but most importantly it is a story about redemption.

In a world where fear and hatred have become all-too-common sentiments, The Kite Runner shows us that it is possible to overcome these feelings, even when they are based on ignorance. This novel teaches us about the power of forgiveness (as opposed to revenge), and reminds us that no matter how bad things seem at times, there is always hope for a brighter future.

The movie version of the book used no digital effects at all, even for long shots and crowd scenes.

Unlike the film version of The Kite Runner, the book is more than just a series of events. It’s also a story about friendship and loyalty, betrayal and redemption.

The movie had to be shot in Morocco because Hosseini was worried that if he shot it in Afghanistan or Pakistan, people would get killed or arrested for making a movie that portrayed the Taliban as bad guys—and not long after filming began, Osama bin Laden was killed by American forces at his compound in Abbottabad (a short drive from Islamabad).

Hosseini made sure he got everything right; he learned how to fly kites from an Afghan master so he could teach Jake Gyllenhaal on set for The Kite Runner. He even traveled to Iran during filming because “he wanted his [movie] characters to have Iranian accents."

One of the main characters is named Amir, which means Prince in Arabic. Hosseini explained that he chose this name because Amir seems like a prince at first, then we learn there are cracks in his life.

One of the main characters in the book is named Amir. This name means prince in Arabic, and Hosseini chose it because he seems like a prince at first, but we learn there are cracks in his life. This could be seen as a metaphor for how Afghanistan was once considered by the United States to be a special place, then we discover that it has problems and cracks as well.

Amir is the protagonist and narrator of the novel. He’s a young man who lives in Afghanistan before moving to California when he’s older. We follow his story as he struggles with being a good person while living in such an extreme environment.

While I was reading this book for my honors class in high school, I became very interested in how Hosseini used his own experience as an Afghan immigrant to America. In particular, he wrote about the differences between life in his home country versus life here."

Conclusion

Hosseini's book is an important read for anyone who wants to understand the complex relationships between Afghanistan, the U.S., and its people. He explores themes of loyalty and honor as well as politics in a nuanced way that shows how complicated these issues can be when put under scrutiny. The Kite Runner is my favorite book because it feels like it's written by someone who understands both sides of every argument, even if he doesn't necessarily agree with them or acknowledge their existence.
