“Runner, he thought as he went on break. Just let me be a Runner. Once again he thought about how absurd it was that he wanted it so badly.

Another symbol to acknowledge in the story is the serpent. The serpent came in the story in a stick figure way. “This is a dull pace for the beginning of a journey”. The sneaky serpent confided this saying to
As argued with the ideas put forth by Foster in How to Read Literature Like a Professor, related patterns - found in plot, characters, and drama - occur across pieces of literature, which can make reading complicated pieces of literature easier. These patterns, which occur repetitively in different works, are noticeable after being constantly exposed to them. This allows a reader to identify patterns, and connect your earlier experience with the example right in front of you. For example, take the Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini uses a multitude of patterns and archetypes which have been used time and time again in several other works. Once everything in the novel is treated as a symbol, we can see how Amir’s travel to Afghanistan is a quest; how Hassan's character mirrors the mannerism of Jesus Christ; that the social hierarchies of Afghanistan have occurred across history, and more. In recognizing these in the Kite Runner, a
“It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime…” (Kite Runner, Hosseini,142) This quote was said to Amir in the Kite Runner, however, this quote applies across all literature. Including A Thousand Splendid Suns.
Each symbol is used to build a way of foreshadowing the journey from the once overruled society of technology and the lack of independent thought to the rebirth and reflection into a positive human-focused society. There are numerous symbols used in this novel, some tie into each other as well.
