“I will never forget Baba's valiant efforts to conceal the disgusted look on his face” (21). This single sentence is the sum of Amir's relationship with his father. Throughout his life, Amir felt like he constantly let his father down. Even when Amir was a child, Baba said to Rahim Khan, “There is something missing in that boy … A boy who won't stand up for himself becomes a man who can't stand up for anything” (22).

When he know that Hassan is his brother, he doubts about his father word because his father will never lie to him or anyone, “when you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.
