Since the day Amir is born, he feels that his father dislikes him. While his mother gave birth, Amir continually felt as though he had to fix the ruining of his father’s life of love with Sofia.

The differences between the father and son are so abundant that Baba emphasizes, “If I hadn’t seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I’d not believe he’s my son” (Hossieni 25).

When a woman is choosing the right husband, not only is she picking a man to spend the rest of her life with, she is picking a man to be the father to her children.

Because Charlie is an observer of life, he sees things that people usually don’t and has to keep them as secrets. Although burdens to Charlie, Chbosky writes these “secrets” in a way that enables the reader to understand the meaning of them and understand them as life lessons, even if the meaning doesn’t occur to Charlie. For example, Charlie witnesses his sister getting hit by her boyfriend. Charlie’s sister begs him not to tell anyone about the incident because “he’s [her] whole world” (25), and because Charlie is naïve, he doesn’t tell a soul. While this might not have been the right

Not the truth of his suffering, but just the way they would both like it to be. Even though this young soldier is trying to spare the woman’s feelings, I believe it is much better to know the truth no matter how horrid it may be. The truth is always more valuable.
