Item description for In Search of the Kite Runner (Popular Insights) by Judi Slayden Hayes...

Overview
In Khaled Hosseini's best-selling novel The Kite Runner (Riverhead Books, 2003), Hosseini shows us an Afghanistan rich in tradition and culture and an Afghanistan torn apart by war and political strife. We see Muslims who are not so different from Christians or Jews. In Search of the Kite Runner looks at the basic themes that make The Kite Runner such a fascinating and thought-provoking story and that make it personal for anyone who has ever wished for a chance to do something over. Written from a Christian perspective, In Search of the Kite Runner begins with the rudiments of Islamic faith and the Islam of Afghanistan. The author likens the struggles of The Kite Runner's characters and those of other literary figures to the struggles and stories of biblical patriarchs. She brings to light the complexities of interpersonal and intrafamily relationships and examines the impact that power, guilt, and the quest for forgiveness and redemption can have on our lives. Exploring both the individual and the collective basis for doing good, Hayes probes our perceptionsabout what it means to be religious and what it means to be human.

Reviews - What do customers think about In Search of the Kite Runner (Popular Insights)?

Kite Runner's Connections to Other Great Literature  Dec 10, 2007
Reading Hosseini's Kite Runner inspires both an emotional and spiritual response. Author Judi Hayes explores these reponses in her book by bringing in connections to other great "coming of age" literature. She also provides clear insight into the different paths people take in developing a spiritual nature and how some of these paths are reflected in Hosseini's novel.

Not really what I thought it would be, not really needed after reading The Kite Runner unless you're doing a bit of research.
