Chapter 1-5 - Father/Son Relationships

Compare and contrast the father/son relationship between Amir and Baba, and Hassan and Ali.

The father/son between Amir and Baba is not the best. Amir is constantly searching for his fathers attention and feels as if he is not successful in doing so. Baba feels that Amir is weak because he does not stand up for himself. Also, they do not have the same interests, Amir enjoys reading and writing whereas his father does not. Therefore, they do not have much in common and it is difficult for them to have a strong bond and relationship.

The father/son relationship between Hassan and Ali seems to be a much better relationship than Amir and Baba's. They seem to have a strong bond and strong connect with one another, as well as seem to have each others backs, as shown when the shooting happens.

  1. You have done a good job identifying the differences between the two relationships. Why do you think there is such a difference? How might social expectations play a role in their relationships?
