Maria Ritchie Mr. David R. Lopez Honors English 9 6 December 2017 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a classic tale about a boy in the mid-19th century. Tom is greatly admired by all his friends because of his blatant disregard for the rules and his keen sense of adventure. Throughout the novel, Tom manipulates people’s feelings, probably without even realizing it himself.

Schoolwork Helper believes that, "His guilt became so great that he feels he was actually responsible for Hassan's death" (Remorse Leads to Redemption, Schoolwork Helper). Hosseini, in The Kite Runner, states how Amir has learned that burying the past is not possible as it always finds a way to rise up again (page 1, chapter 1).

Li Cunxin, in his blog, writes that at the end of the story, it is learned by the readers that Baba turned out to be a thief who stole the truth from Amir and Hassan.
