This is a tale of guilt born from a buried past; it is a tale of the hope -- however miniscule -- for a redeeming peace.Even before the winter of 1975, Amir's childhood is far from perfect.As the 1980s and 1990s progress, these battles rage on, and Amir's fiercest battle is within his own heart and his own conscience.The winter of 1975, and the secrets he holds from that time, gnaw at him and refuse to go away.
Ali and Hassan have lived in a servant's hut on Baba's property for as long as Amir can remember.But even here, in the land of opportunity, Amir cannot find peace.Likewise, Afghanistan is torn apart, its prior beauty destroyed at the hands of captors and power-hungry tyrants.However, Khaled Hosseini, with his first novel (published in 2003), has provided such a spellbinding and heartbreaking work of art and shifted the balance of my "favorite books" hierarchy. is narrated by Amir, who opens the novel by saying: "I became what I am today at the age of twelve, on a frigid overcast day in the winter of 1975." This single sentence is the launching point for the rest of the novel because everything -- literally, everything -- that Amir holds important in his life can be traced in some way to that fateful watershed moment.Its contemporary setting and concerns mesh seamlessly with universal emotions, hopes, and fears. "Today" refers to December 2001, the time frame in which Amir begins his narrative.
