Khaled Hosseini’s way of retelling the novel, ‘The Kite Runner’ can be seen as interesting, coming from a first person unreliable narrator being Amir. The story is told from the point of view of Amir, who is looking back on his life, recounting his memories to as much accuracy as possible. This structural way of story telling immediate creates suspicion amongst the reader. We become curious in the novel why Amir retold in-particular moments which at the time didn’t seem significant. This creates tension for the reader who wants to know what relevance these moments have to later moments in Amir’s life. Chronologically, we would not get the view point of a much wiser and older Amir. For this reason, the catastrophe being Hassan’s rape wouldn’t look as tragic as it would have been.
