In Sohrab’s case, his past has been so traumatizing that it affects all his behavior.
The prolonged physical and sexual abuse he endured makes him flinch anytime Amir touches him.
Educators go through a rigorous application process, and every answer they submit is reviewed by our in-house editorial team.
Another incident in addition to the one you have already mentioned is where Hassan shows loyalty to Amir when Amir accuses him of stealing his watch.
As a result, he is hard on Amir, and he can only show his love for Hassan indirectly, by bringing Hassan along when he takes Amir out, for instance, or paying for Hassan’s lip surgery.
In contrast with this, the most loving relationship between father and son we see is that of Hassan and Sohrab.
He also fears the abandonment he experienced when his parents died so much that he attempts suicide when Amir says he may have to go back to an orphanage.
For Amir, the past is always with him, from the book’s first sentence, when he says he became what he is today at the age of twelve, to its final sentence. His feelings of guilt for his past actions continue to motivate him.
Amir finally succeeds in demonstrating his own faithfulness to Hassan after Hassan is dead.
Amir makes the dangerous journey back to Afghanistan to rescue Hassan's son Sohrab from the Taliban, confronting the brutal Assef, who has grown up to become a high-ranking member of the extremist group, and bringing Sohrab home to America to raise as his own.
