His attitude in this chapter is comparable to how he feels after committing the crime. At this time in his life, rather than being a self-motivated guilt like he had after he committed the murders, it was a guilt pressured on to him by Sonia. She gave him something to look forward to whenever his sentence was completed. Although it may not be genuine, he realizes the torture he had put Sonia through, saying “he recalled how he had constantly caused her pain” (527). This reveals that he has a sense of remorse for at least some of his actions, particularly the pain he caused Sonia.
This man is revealed to be Arthur Radley. This shows kindness in dark times because Jem and Scout would both most likely have been killed if it were not for the kindness of Arthur Radley saving them. My final example of my theme in my book is in chapter 31. In chapter 31, Arthur Radley is still struggling with his fear of society so Scout decides to let him see Jem. After his odd time with Jem, he wishes to be taken home, so Scout shows kindness and walks him home, hand in hand.

The protagonist, Amir is witness of a terrible crime being committed to his friend, but Amir does nothing to stop it from happening. Hosseini uses this situation in the book to show how Amir was acting selfish. This act of selfishness leads to guilt later on. According to (http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/the-kite-runner/themes.html) “Amir becomes exactly the sort of coward Baba worried Amir would become” (1). This obvious guilt made Amir feel like a helpless coward.
The main event that betrayal is shown is when Amir did not speak up while Hassan was abused. Hassan has stood up for Amir in every circumstance.

One of the few themes that Khaled Hosseini expresses in his novel The Kite Runner is betrayal. Betrayal is defined as misleading/deceiving someone’s trust.

Hosseini portrays Amir’s quest for redemption beautifully throughout his life as an innocent teenager in the enthralling and serene city of Kabul to his life as a family man in The United States of America. Through Amir’s life, Hosseini clearly portrays the fact that all sins can be atoned however grave or futile they may be and by their atonement one can attain self-satisfaction and can be at peace. According to the Holy Bible, and the Old Testament, an act of committing a sin is that which “separates man from God himself” (Anonymous).

The plot of novels is usually driven forward by one or more underlying themes that surround the majority of the actions that the main characters take. These themes range anywhere from seeking forgiveness to seeking revenge. In Khaled Hosseini’s award-winning novel, The Kite Runner, we follow the life of a young Afghani boy named Amir, who makes decision and acts in ways that not only impact his own life, but also drastically change the life of the one’s surrounding him. Many of Amir’s actions can be attributed to the main underlying theme in this novel, cruelty. We see Amir go from being the victim of perceived cruelty, to being the one causing the cruelty, to the one fighting the cruelty at the end of the novel.
Baba’s fluctuating relationship with his son is a key moment in The Kite Runner. Baba is portrayed as a very powerful, masculine, figure whereas Amir is depicted as being weaker and less masculine.

He has the last kite at home, a beautiful blue kite”
