| Quote #10
[Amir:] "Well, Mr. Faisal thinks that it would really help if we could...if we could ask you to stay in a home for kids for a while."
Just when you thought Amir did something nice for a change...he goes back on his promise to Sohrab. Amir's broken promise has disastrous consequences: Sohrab tries to kill himself. Does Amir betray yet another person? Or, is this "betrayal" out of Amir's hands? If so, does Amir's helplessness in this situation force you to reinterpret Amir's earlier abandonment of Hassan? Does this passage suggest Amir really wasn't to blame for abandoning Hassan?
