jarrad i posted my thoughts some time ago
i think his friend is himself, a dissociation to deal with a traumatic experience
i think hassan's son is his inner child who has been in trauma for many years
i think the very last paragraph of the book describes how he initiates his path to healing
i think when hassan was raped it was a dissociation so he was looking as if it was someone else but it was him
just my thoughts

I have been reading this Kite Runner thread. Here is a link to a post I made back in June of 2006.

This book did more for my recovery as any other and I've read a lot of books on CSA. For me it was about sexual abuse.

i read this book summer of 2006 and was deeply moved...so many issues to be discovered...for csa survivors...for people who need to be made aware of other cultures and the fact that we are all living on the same earth, yet we experience such profoundly different political situations that create obstacles in our lives...and, for us all to better understand the Afghanistan people.

it is a beautiful book...profoundly sad...but moving and quite an inspirational read. and, yes...some really difficult triggers for us survivors.

By the way the paperback edition is out of print but they just printed a brand new "premium" edition, with pictures. It's just out, I ordered from amazon and received it but it's been sitting in the mail room for a week now.
