Chapter 1-10

I feel like Amir acts like a coward he runs away from problem and if he feels guilty he doesn't fix it he just avoids it at any cost for an example when he watched Hassen get raped instead of helping and standing up for him he ran "In the end, I ran. I ran because I was a coward" (Hossenin 77). Also in the book Amir does not face his promblems he just hurts people so he can try and feel better about seeing the rape and not saying anything, when Amir set up Hassen because he felt so guilty and Hassen did nnot say anything knowing that his father and Baba would believe him telling the truth he just left Amir hurt Baba, Hassen and Ali " That was when I understood the depth of the pain I had caused, the blackness of the felt I had brought onto everyone" (107). Throgh the whole story Amir has become worse and made thing worse for everyone just because he ran away from the rape and did not tell anyone.


  1. I see your point and that you believe that Amir is a bad guy because he keeps "running away", do you think if Amir said something to Hassan after the raping to help him feel better do you think your opinion on Amir would change?

  3. Most people share the same reaction to Amir's cowardice, but I wonder if people are too harsh with Amir? Why do we hate Amir so much, but don't extend the same vitriol to Assef, Kamal, and Wali?
