When Amir went back to Afghanistan because of Rahim Khan’s letter, he went to redeem himself for his past mistakes. He needed to get rid of the guilt that has been haunting him for years. "What was so funny was that, for the first time since the winter of 1975 I felt at peace. I laughed because I saw that, in some nook in the corner of my mind, I had been looking forward to this." (Hosseini 289).

A way to be good again.” (192) I know that Amir is going to try to get redeemed by this because all he wants is to be good again and that is what Rahim Khan is promising.

Amir recalls an incident that happens 26 years ago, leaving him with a quest to redeem himself. The memory starts in Kabul, where Amir lives with his father, Baba, and his two servants, Hassan and Ali. Hassan is very loyal towards Amir. His love for him as a friend is selfless, leaving the two inseparable.
