Hosseini has commented that he regards The Kite Runner as a father-son relationship story, emphasizing the familiar aspects of the narrative, an element that he continued to use in his later works. [2] The themes of guilt and redemption appear prominently in the novel, [3] with a pivotal scene depicting an act of sexual assault that occurs against Hassan that Amir fails to prevent. The situation as a whole was the main reason why Amir and Hassan’s friendship ended. The second half of the book focuses on Amir’s attempts to atone for this transgression by rescuing Hassan’s son two decades later.
