During their conversation, Rahim Khan told Amir that “there was a way to be good again” to which Amir instantly knew the reason for his statement. Amir knew that Rahim Khan had found out what he did to Hassan and so in order to retribute himself, he flew to Pakistan to meet Rahim. When he arrived in Peshawar, he saw a very ill Rahim Khan who told him that Hassan and his wife, Sofia, were killed by the Taliban after coming to maintain the grounds of Baba’s house and that their son, Sohrab, was sent to an orphanage.

One of the main themes in The Kite Runner is forgiveness. It is shown in many different ways throughout the book and mainly revolves around how Amir wants to be forgiven for not helping Hassan when Hassan needed help the most. Amir cannot live with the guilt and feels a strong need to find redemption after he betrays Hassan. Hassan, who has always helped him and stood up for him in the past, got raped while Amir was watching and cowardly refuses to intervene. Amir couldn’t live with the guilt, so he framed Hassan for stealing objects from the house.
Amir first realizes the depth of his cowardice as he watches Assef rape Hassan in the alley and thinks, “I could step in into that alley, stand up for Hassan—the way he stood up for me all those times in the past—and accept whatever happened to me. Or I could run” (Hosseini 77). He has an epiphany that he could choose to be brave and selfless like Hassan and step up to Assef regardless of any physical consequences. However, despite his understanding that the noble choice would be to interfere and stop Assef, Amir is unable to act on it because his fear of Assef overwhelms him. The guilt that consumes Amir in the weeks following Hassan’s rape indicates that he understands the extent of his selfish behavior and needs to resolve it before he can forgive himself.
At the end of the store, these secrets are divulged. Whenever Amir lets Hassan get rapped by the bully, Assef, readers realize that Hassan isn’t the person portrayed at the beginning of the book. This is especially shown whenever Amir keeps this as a secret for the ongoing years. If he would have tried to help Hassan, then readers would be able to sympathize toward both characters, not just Hasan. The reasoning behind Amir’s innocence in the situation is because he was “scared,” he didn’t want to “confront” Assef.

Though it has happened for all of history, the firsthand descriptions within The Kite Runner make it a powerful, riveting book with themes as prevalent in today’s world as they were in 1980s
The authors use pathos to grab us by our emotions and make us want to keep reading about such a historically powerful but terrible group. To do so they use powerful, livid, and emotional language. Levitt and Dubner help us to remember how terrible the Ku Klux Klan was and the repulsive things they did to not just “black people” but to human beings that did in no way deserve what they had to go through during slavery and even after with language that appeals to the senses. “The early Klan did its work through pamphleteering, lynching, shooting, burning, castrating, pistol-whipping, and a thousand forms of intimidation” (52). Levitt and Dubner start right off the bat using a rhetorical strategy called appeal to pity by very vividly listing the things the Ku Klux Klan did to their victims.

Fourthly, Mr. B confessed that he paid out of pocket for his father’s previous fender benders rather than contacting the insurance company for fear of legal repercussions. This piece of evidence is key because it shows guilt and that he knows that allowing his father to drive is wrong.
