Amir did not stop the rape of a boy years ago, and did not take the boy away from Afghanistan to safety all those years ago, but is able to do all those things for the man's son. Amir redeems himself in every way possible, down to beating up the man who is responsible for a lot of Amir's guilt. Though Amir's nephew will always carry memories and trauma from his past in Afghanistan and Amir will always carry some guilt, ultimately everyone is redeemed and can now be happy.

(cont.) Amir witnesses the Taliban stone two people to death, before organising to speak with them about the boy. Amir recognises the Taliban member he speaks to as the man who raped Amir's Hazara servant twenty years ago. The man refuses to give Amir his nephew unless Amir beats his in a fist fight. Together with his nephew, Amir defeats the man and hobbles away with his nephew and a staggering list of injuries.

I chose this quote from chapter 16 of The Kite Runner because it in no way romanticises or downplays how bad the life was, and is, in Afghanistan. This quote and the paragraph that it is taken from, places emphasis on the themes of survival and guilt that feature in the book. Everyone fighting to survive, only to feel guilty if they do. This quote is spoken by Amir's father's friend as he is telling Amir of what has been happening in Afghanistan and shows us the anguish that was experienced.

I chose this quote because it draws attention to childrens' thirst for recognition and pride from their parents. This quote highlights the main character Amir's desperation to impress his father and live up to his father's expectations.
