Choose ONE topic to respond to:
1. What is the relationship between individual morality and the health of the greater society as Hosseini seems to be suggesting in this novel? What must a society do “to be good again”?
2. Amir says of the incredibly loyal Hassan: “That’s the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.” To what degree are the interactions of characters in this novel constrained by their very different moral codes? Who sees “the other” accurately in this novel? What is the key to that accurate seeing?
