I believe the source of Amir’s power is in his ethnicity because he was born in a higher class. I also believe that Hassan had some power since he was the son of Baba. Throughout the book, you can see that Hassan had lived a plight free life. Amir would always scoff at Hassan about literature, even though Hassan is unschooled. Hassan always stayed loyal, although I would think he would feel animosity towards Hassan.
He pointed out Mr. Cathey consistent bombardments of challenges and how he handle each situation. Every good point in his life such as becoming a father was met with a bad point in which he couldn’t go to school because he became a father. The author allowed us to feel happy for the situations that seemed any reasonable person would feel good about and upset about the unforeseen variables that tend to find Mr. Cathey. The author makes sure you feel the joy and pain of a young man who could have made it to a higher level but came up short because of his bad decision
Throughout the Kite Runner, Amir lived a deceptive lifestyle by pretending that he was a good kid though he’d done terrible things to Hassan. Redemption plays a key part in Amir’s life because it gave him the urge to become a good person. There’s a way to be a “good person”. Amir knew that he could only achieve this if he has the chance to face his past and reconstruct it. In Amir’s perspective, redemption is his way of becoming “good” again.
As long as Amir was better than Hassan at anything it made Amir happy. "Read it again please, Amir agha," “Hassan would say. Sometimes tears pooled in Hassan's eyes as I read him this passage (Hosseini 29).” This shows just how serious Hassan felt about the books that Amir would read to him. How he deeply enjoyed learning from what Amir would teach him, just be listening to him
The quote supports the thesis because it shows that Shane has learned to appreciate his father, and has learned to be grateful for every sacrifice his father made for him. It also proves that Shane had ignored the sacrifices his dad made, and he is not only recognizing the sacrifices, but his love and care for his dad. Shane realizes that he’s been making a mistake the whole time by taking his father for granted and he knows now to be thankful for everything that he gets. Now that he knows, he’s afraid he’s going to lose his dad
At first, it is very hard to just open up to him after all these years, and many things happen on this trip which makes them both open up their ears to one another. I can relate to this piece of writing, which is why it really stood out to me. My dad left at a young age; it was hard not having a father in my life.

He just accepted that he had a bad life and didn’t make an effort to make it any better. Then he met a real friend, Freak, and he found hope that he had a purpose in life.

A tragic hero must be fundamentally good but have a fatal flaw that ultimately leads to their downfall. McMurphy truly was a fundamentally good person.. Throughout the course of the novel, he grew to really care about the other patients on the ward. In the beginning he annoyed Nurse Ratched solely for his own benefit and entertainment.
Eli is someone who everyone loves even when they first meet him, except Victor. Although he soon grows on him because of their shared interests.

The basic plot of the story is that Victor and Eli used to be the best of friends, until a major situation drove them apart.
The letter to Amir from Rahim Khan made Amir’s life better. Although it may outwardly seem that Amir was put into another series of difficult decisions and misery, the end result that Amir was desperately struggling to look for is worth it all in the end and Rahim Khan was just there to give him a little push. Rahim knows Amir very well and what he wrote was made with good intentions. Amir is a cowardly person; it’s just who he is, and that he just needed reassuring.

This year in college english I have read a total of 3 books this semester. All of them have very different storylines also they all had their own themes and some of them even share the same things from 1984 to Looking for Alaska and The Kite Runner they all were very good books with their own themes. The main message or theme in 1984 that I think George Orwell was saying was about totalitaristic societies and how bad they can be. The setting in 1984 was in a totalitaristic society in Oceania, the whole book is about Winston and his life in this society, there are many examples of the totalitarianism government throughout the book.
