    Hey all,

    Looking for some help with the following Kite Runner essays;

    "Hosseini focuses solely on the harshness and poverty within Afghanistan". How far do you agree?

    "The Kite Runner is not primarily a celebration of protest but a condemnation of compliance" To what extent do you agree?

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if anyone has any tips or even any Kite Runner essays, please send me a copy! Really need help in English!


    What ideas of your own do you have?

    The only points I have are:

    YES - At the start, he portrays the beauty within Afghanistan however, then juxtaposes this with the soviet invasion which brutalises Afghanistan to show a sense of loss.

    NO - He focuses on Amir's redemption and the racism towards Hazaras

    I just need a model answer to get me going
