1 The Kite Runner Structure

2 Introduction Structurally the novel can be divided into two distinct parts: The first part of the novel introduces Amir and Khan’s typical friendship when they were still kids and just as importantly their growing fondness over kites. The second section portrays Amir’s struggles to fight the guilt he feels over his betrayal over Hassan and ultimately the amazing twist of fate that allows him to redeem himself over his mistakes over the past and this live a normal life.

3 Climax The climax in the book is when Amir meets Assef who is now a Talib who has Sohrab. Amir goes to rescue him and a fight breaks out. Sohrab who is like his father before any thought saves Amir with a deadly sling shot.

4 The Turning Points At the end of chapter 9 there is a turning point as it is the end of Hassan & Amir’s relationship. The is when we realize that Hassan knew Amir witnessed the raping all along & that he lied & said that it was he that stole the watch just to protect Amir. Also this is the first time Amir sees Baba cry & is surprised that Baba forgives Hassan and begs him to stay. Chapter seven begins with a dream that Hassan had about facing fear. His dream symbolises facing fears straight on.

5 Flashbacks & Foreshadowing Khaled Hosseini frequently uses flashback and foreshadowing. Most of the novel, which begins in 2001 and ends in 2002, is an elaborate flashback that brings the reader from the narrator's childhood to his young adulthood to his manhood. Within this structure, Hosseini's use of time devices provide the reader and the narrator with information about what has happened outside the action of the novel

6 The Phone Call - Redemption Living with his wife among the community of Afghan exiles in San Francisco, Amir remains haunted by a shameful episode from his childhood—he betrayed the trust of Hassan, his playmate—and longs for the opportunity to make amends for his dishonorable behavior. The chance for redemption comes when Amir receives a phone call from a family friend exiled in Pakistan who informs him that the Taliban have executed Hassan and his wife. Their son must be rescued from a Kabul orphanage.
