So, the reader is led to feel sympathetic towards a man who destroyed someone’s vehicle, lured criminals to his family home where his kid brother and sister slept, and then he shot the two boys in front of his eleven-year-old brother. Shooting Basca and Finch was all premeditated. Ruben states “Somehow he was holding the little Winchester he’d carried in the timber that afternoon. And holding it comfortably.” (page 49) Not only did Davy bring the gun to bed with him, but had the gun loaded and ready to go before the light was switched on to see who was at the door.

Soraya and General Taheri have a relationship proving that an imbalance of power is unhealthy. When Soraya runs off with an Afghan man at age eighteen, General Taheri appears within a month with a gun in hand threatening to kill the man and then himself (Hosseini 179).
