Book Description

21 Mar 2006 0521682347 978-0521682343 1
The Kite Runner, by Afghanistan-born, American Khaled Hosseini, confronts readers with sometimes difficult truths and deep moral issues of loyalty, kinship and faith. Amir and Hassan are inseparable childhood friends in Afghanistan, though Amir is the son of a rich man and Hassan is a lower caste servant. Amir betrays his friend with catastrophic results, but years later he finds a way to redeem his guilt. Written by an experienced teacher, this guide offers you background notes on the writer and the events in Afghanistan, as well as on the genre, structure and style of the text. You are given a storyboard synopsis of the novel, then taken through it chapter by chapter, with key quotes highlighted and teacher explanations to draw out the sub text. To extend your understanding and interpretation, this guide also includes comprehensive notes on characters, themes, advice on writing an exam answer, and two full length A+ essays on the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great help for English AS revision 27 Mar 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm studying The Kite Runner for my English AS exam in May. I notice that York Notes by Hosseini himself are due out in August but that's too late for me. I bought this book and it is excellent for revision purposes. There's a great chapter by chapter synopsis along with commentary, good character notes, 2 fully written exam essays and some interesting insights into the history of Afghanistan.

It's a very quick read too. A great aid to revision. Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate 10 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
Although the study guide does have good points and essay examples which would be helpful, I kept noticing mistakes in the study guide. They would say Hassan said something when really Baba did or get a date wrong and it would just annoy me because if I didn't have my own notes I would have used the inacurate information in my exam. For that reason, I think it is good but it could be a lot better.
