Beginning the kite runner!

I found todays lesson particularly helpful because i got a really good insite into the importance of chapter one. I found it interesting how Hoseini uses the signifincance of the mysterious 'event' to control the reader and encourage them to delve further into the novel and find out what possibly could be so terrible an event to change someones life to the present day so dramatically, as Amir demonstrates as he talks about his sinful past.
I think it's really helpful to understand chapter one and what it suggests as it will obviously relate to the chapters that follow and will hold vital comparisons that will become more obvious the more i understand chapter one.

The object in my room

There is a red folder.
This fact that the colour of the folder is red could symbolise many things as red is the colour often used to show danger. The colour red also has connotations of rage, anger, evilness and the devil. This would intimidate some people and try and persuade and repel people away from the folder and its mysterious interior.
This could show that the folder contains some hidden horrific information as part of a mystery novel, it could be what everyone has been searching for in order to read the horrible truth. Of life? Living? Earth? Humanity? or more!
It could also hold the contents to evil or dangerous plans of the government, or backstabbing secret information that is TOP SECRET.
It could also be a con, much like the fruit in Adam and Eve. The folder may be a dare to open, and the greedy person who dares to disobbey the folder is cursed, or hurt, after opening it. This could lead to a further horrible outcome or story line whereas this person must complete a number of tasks in the story before accessing their freedom again. All because of the dark, cruel, intense red folder,
sat motionlessly on the table, in my room.
