Khaled Hosseini vividly describes Afghanistan, both the privileged world of Amir's childhood and the stricken country under the Taliban. How did his descriptions differ from ideas that you may already have had about Afghanistan? What cultural differences become evident in the American passages of the novel? How easy do the Afghans find it to settle in the U.S.? Compare the social structures of Amir's life in Afghanistan vs. those he encounters in America.

This is more a personal question. Before I read The Kite Runner, I had known a fair bit about Afghanistan so this is difficult for me to answer. You need to ask yourself what you know about the country ant the conflicts. Then compare this to what you read in the novel.
