Story time

Hassan is Amir's best friend, and Amir is Hassan's best friend. They have shaped each other in many ways. An example of this is the time they spend reading together. Hassan does not know how to read because he does not attend school like Amir. To help Hassan gain more knowledge about the world he reads to him. Hassan enjoys the reading sessions because he can escape his reality and at the same time learn about the world around him. Amir also enjoys writing stories during his past time. He reads the stories to Hassan to see if they are good. Hassan always says the stories are good and encourages Amir to keep writing. Amir is a talented writer and Hassan encourages him to peruse his passion. Amir reading to an uneducated Hassan bonds them together, and makes them better people.

  1. I can see that Hassan sees Amir as his best friend, but I question if Amir sees Hassan this way. Is Amir really reading to Hassan because he wants to help him? Doesn't he use his knowledge to make fun/take advantage of him?
