Speaker: Amir thinking to himself Context: Amir and Farid stop to spend the night with Wahid's family Farid's brother. Farid admonishes him as soon as the truck passes. Amir is back in Afghanistan looking for Hassan's son, Sohrab. This can be especially tough when a character is introduced in the middle of the book like Farid.
In the story, the author sends the message that redemption can be a lifelong pursuit, and until achieved, happiness will not be obtained. Have you ever wondered why he never includes you in games when he has guests? After the war stricken years, Rahim Khan asked him to come back to the house in Kabul and agrees after thinking about it. What was the old saying about the bad penny? It gave him a sense of satisfaction as if Hassan and Baba have forgiven him from the crimes of his childhood. He will honor Hassan by raising Sohrab. He could have chosen to disregard the true nature of Amir's visit, or to find a problem with the fact that Amir waited so long to come back, but instead he apologizes and agrees to help Amir find the boy. Amir recalls two memories and one dream during the rape of Hassan by Assef.
The story itself enables the reader to get a thorough insight into the daily life of the Afghani people and into their culture. Relating to the structure, the novel could now be seen as an immigration story. The reader will therefore evoke sympathy for the amount of suffering Amir is going through at the moment because he simply wants to be punished by Hassan is to nice to punish Amir.

This reveals the theme of redemption throughout the Kite Runner. In this lesson we will take a look at some of Farid's important quotes and examine how they reflect his identity. What is peculiar about him is that he is a freethinker, who always strives to do what is right and to think for oneself. After the war stricken years, Rahim Khan asked him to come back to the house in Kabul and agrees after thinking about it. Born in Kabul, Afghanistan, Amir was the son of a wealthy social worker. Amir's father notices this as well, and wonders if there is something wrong with his son.
Despite being best friends, Amir thinks that Hassan is beneath him because he belonged to an inferior cast. We sympathise as we know Amir was powerless at the rape scene. Hassan unfortunately encounters the neighborhood bullies and is assaulted. At times Baba seems untouchable, unreachable because he towers over ordinary men. While driving, Farid gives Amir a ton of attitude and keeps snickering under his breath at everything Amir says.
He needs the backing of other characters being Hassan and Sohrab to help him stand up for himself. One corner of his mouth had curled up just so. Amir shows signs of becoming an adult. America was a river, roaring along, unmindful of the past. Because when spring comes, it melts the snow one flake at a time, and maybe I just witnessed the first flake melting. Ironically, the fact that Amir still loves Soraya, indicates that there is redemption after guilt. There is comparisons between Hassan as a child and Sohrab.
Hassan is also innocent and would rather hurt himself than hurt his friend. He is not always correct, but he is usually very blunt and honest. This moment represent the slaughter of Hassan.

I looked at Hassan, showing those two missing teeth, sunlight slanting on his face. He knew I had betrayed him and yet he was rescuing me once again, maybe for the last time. As Baba told the young Amir, the only real crime is theft, and rape is a theft of safety and selfhood, the ultimate violence and violation, and in The Kite Runner this brutality is inflicted upon both individual characters and the country of Afghanistan. Amir had a rocky relation with his father. Where much of his childhood revolves around the actions of his father Baba, and his friend Hassan.
Khaled Hosseini brings his characters to life eloquently. Hosseini is juxtaposing the setting to their relationship. The physical beating he takes at the hands of Assef is the payment for his guilt after all these years. His soul is slaughtered and he is physically and especially emotionally hurt from. Farid is a taxi driver who has two wives and used to have 7 children. Significance: Loyalty versus betrayal Baba was never told why she left Hassan and Ali.
