However, the consequences of the betrayal are always long lasting and have sever effects. Betrayal is seen when Amir cares more about attention than his own friendships. Betrayal is also seen when Baba feels that his son Amir will never be good enough. In contrast, one character who never shows betrayal is Hasssan. In The Kite Runner, Amir and Baba engage in the act of betrayal however Hassan never betrays.
