First, Baba’s looming shame of his affair prohibits him from being a proper father to Amir and Hassan. Baba fails to inform Amir that his best friend, Hassan, is actually his half-brother because of this affair. Years after Baba’s death, Rahim Khan tells Amir of Baba’s act of adultery. With this betrayal, Amir begins to question everything he values in his father, stating that “Baba had been a thief. And a thief of the worst kind, because the things he’d stolen had been sacred: from me the right to know I had a brother, from Hassan his identity, and from Ali [Hassan’s “father”] his honor. His nang. His namoos” (Hosseini 225). Despite his guilt, Baba makes a vow with Rahim Khan and Ali to keep the affair a secret from his own sons, causing a distortion
In the book The Kite Runner, the author establishes the setting of afghanistan after Amir’s phone call with Rahim Khan in the first chapter.The setting of afghanistan begins by the narrator, in the second paragraph, explaining what his childhood looked like in Kabul. The first time when there is a vivid passage in the book is in the middle of chapter 2 where the narrator is describing where Amir and Hassan lived as children.“The poplar trees lined the redbrick driveway, which led to a pair of wrought-iron gates...One the south end of the garden, in the shadows of a loquat tree, was the servants home, a modest little mud hut where Hassan lived with his father” (5-6)This quote gives a detailed description of what the characters are seeing and

Being in the upper class does not qualified them as people who are most educated. They often have an attitude of being better than others and this carries over into their family relationships. Being in the higher class in America have nothing to do about your education. A percentage of the higher class might be educated because they have enough money to afford college and help their kids reach a better education but in my opinion most kids who grow up wealthy do not really take the time to get an education because they do not see the point of going to school and reach an higher education since they do not really looking for any pay job because they already the amount of money that they need. While the other half might seem the necessity of going to college not for the higher pay but more because they want to better educate
The disappointment in Baba, as he heard those words from Amir, made him feel as if he had failed to be a father. Baba had been tough on Amir for a reason because he didn't want to have to worry about his son. Amir could never stand up for himself, nor could he have stood up for his friend, which heavies the disappointment. I would feel the same way as Baba if my child were to ask me that question, especially at the stage adulthood.
Baba’s wealth, lack of emotional connection, and inner conflict between his two vastly different sons shaped Amir in the novel “Kite Runner”. Baba, of all the characters in the book, shaped Amir the most, despite other influential relationships. “Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.”

Recently, I’ve read an interesting book and I’m here to share with you ;) The book that I read is, “To Kill A Mocking Bird” written by Harper Lee in 1960. For people who haven’t read this book yet, I’ll briefly summarize it. The main character is a little girl named Scout and she is used to explore live of others in the small town of Maycomb in the 1930s. Throughout the novel, she learns valuable lessons from her father by experiencing variety of events. She learns how to understand others; the existence of prejudice and injustice; why it's wrong to harm innocent people; what "real" courage is, and the importance of being true to oneself.
As a country with little to no established culture, the United States does not really have a clear perception on the cultures around the world. Due to the oblivious nature of the United States, they do not get to experience the culture that the world may bring to it. Cultural influence has been around for a very long time and is all around us. For example, when you think about Japan, you think of chopsticks and kimonos. The book titled “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini shows a lot of Afghanistan culture. The culture of Afghanistan is essentially what the entire book is about. One of the book’s many examples of culture would be the unwanted takeover by the Taliban. The Taliban have almost become a part of the Afghanistan culture, although the civilians of Afghanistan do not want that to be the case. The Taliban, and many other parts of Afghanistan culture have greatly influenced the lives of not only Americans,
What 's more, that is intriguing on the grounds that it was the same with their fathers. At the point when Amir is discussing his dad he says, "yet in none of his stories did Baba ever allude to Ali as his companion. The inquisitive thing was, I never considered Hassan and me as companions either". The expression "like father like child" splendidly portrays this circumstance. Some other time is when Baba takes Amir to the lake the day the halfway house opens, Baba advises his child to welcome Hassan to run with them. In any case, he doesn 't and concedes that "He requesting that I get Haasan as well, however I lied and let him know Hassan had the runs. I needed Baba all to myself". That was an exceptionally egotistical move since Amir was just considering himself and not about others. Amir and Baba are additionally both extremely egotistical. Amir is conceited in light of the fact that he couldn 't have cared less that Hassan was getting assaulted just with the goal that Amir could get Hassan 's kite. At the point when Rahim Khan is conversing with Baba he says, "you know, once in a while you are the most narcissistic man I
S.C. Hinton wrote the novel, The Outsiders about two different groups with a different social class status. The Socs were considered the wealthy, sophisticated kids, while the Greasers weren’t liked so much by society. They were poverty-stricken and lived in poorly maintained neighborhoods. “Most greasers don’t have real tuff builds or anything. This is partly because they don’t eat much and partly because they’re slouchy”(Hinton 140). The two associations fought each other time and time again with an intimidating appearance. They may have on a hard face on the outside, but on the inside, they are people with emotions and are devoted to keeping their brotherhood safe.
In the beginning Amir is a coward who cant defend himself and through out the book this begins to change and finally he fully changes in the end of the book. Amir never was the type of boy to fight or stand up for himself. For example, Amir over hears Baba say to Rahim Khan, “You know what happens when the neighborhood boys tease him? Hassan steps in and fend them off…Im telling you Rahim, there is something missing in that boy” (Hosseini, 23). Baba is complaining to Rahim and he doesn't understand why Amir lacks the courage to stand up for himself. He puzzles that Hassan is the one to step in and defend Amir. He also is very confused over the fact that a hazara is more courageous than his son. Baba knows that Amir is not violent and he wishes that he would just stand up for himself. Amir overhears this and is very troubled that Baba doesn’t approve of him. To Amir this is a realization that he is a coward and his father notices it. Later in the book, Amir sees Hassan being raped and he is contemplation jumping in and being courageous because he says, “I had one last chance to make a decision. One final opportunity to decide ...
