Hassan was portrayed as a loyal, compassionate, and selfless friend throughout the story. However, after being raped, he lost interest in the things he once loved. Despite that, he was always put in a good light and was extremely forgiving of Amir’s actions, and he could not hold a grudge.
By doing so, Yen Mah is able to depict how Niang cared more about what her peers thought of her rather than what her step-daughter thought of her. Though Adeline had an awful start in her life in boarding school, Niang continued to diminish her happiness. In the boarding school, Adeline saw other students’ eggs as “symbols of rare privilege,” and they distinguished the students into groups of “loved ones and the unloved ones” (Yen Mah 101,102). Because Adeline did not receive eggs in addition to her daily breakfast, she saw that none of her family members loved her enough to show that they have not forgotten about her. With this envy toward the fortunate students, she also builds animosity toward her family because the family continues to deny her importance in the family by leaving her eggless.

One of my favourite characters in this book is Ani Mells. She is this wild, impulsive girl, who is not afraid to speak her mind. Throughout the book, she gets into situations where, she has to pick from doing the right thing, and getting in trouble, or staying quiet. In which, she always chose to do the right thing. I would love to be Ani’s friend, because she follows her heart, never gives up, and is incredibly brave.
Wang indicated this when she said, “my father’s even worse off than me” (Hong 166). Her father had told her “when he was young, he only learned one character, their name Wang and then only remembered if for a few days” (Hong 166). A lack of an education can make it difficult for someone to find a well-paying job. The family had very little money and saved for a long time for Wang to go to school to receive an education. What little money they had went to food, shelter, and clothes.
The answer float[s] to [his] conscious mind before [he] could thwart it: He [is] just a Hazara [isn’t] he?” (77). In this quote Amir shows his selfishness in the quest for Baba’s affection. He points out that “nothing is free” as he is talking about the love that he yearns for from his father, because he craves this affection so strongly he allows Hassan to be injured as the price to attain Baba’s love. Amir views Hassan as expendable; he blatantly points out that Hassan “is the price he has to pay” as if Hassan was an object, not a human. The innocence of Hassan is shown when he becomes a
When Amir was young he spent his childhood envious of the attention Hassan would receive from his father, which resulted in him treating Hassan less than a friend. This jealousy contaminated his thoughts and contrived him to act out in ways that were shameful to Hassan from belittling him, playing cruel jokes and using him to get out of trouble. Unfortunately, his jealousy continued to grow it got to the point he made a decision he could not come back from. Not only can jealousy affect others, it can affect yourself, such as in On the Rainy River, Tim O’brien was envious of those who chose whether or not to go war and made the decision to leave home and everything behind to move to Canada, where he would have the choice, by making this
