Hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend! We started the Kite Runner last Saturday which prompted some great conversations. We actually sounded like a real book club!
– Comparison of the choices made between Anna and Amir. Tolstoy almost backs Anna’s character into a corner during pivotal decisions, whereas Amir is given many options to change his decision to ignore the rape of Hassan.
– The father/son dynamic. Does Baba really blame Amir for the death of his wife, or is it just in Amir’s mind?
– More comparisons between Anna Karenina and the Kite Runner both socially and culturally.
– Blame the circumstances or choices?
Read through chapter 20. We will be meeting at Stella’s
