The son always thinks that he is going to die, and the son is always afraid. His character starts off flat but then he progresses into a round character. He ends up “carrying the fire” which indicates that the son is willing to survive and “he talked to his father and he didn’t forget” (270) about his father’s belief.

Alf, Hughie’s father is a short-tempered, stubborn and uneducated man. Hughie is just as stubborn as his father and is very opinionated.
In my opinion, Hamlet is a young man that deeply loves his father and is severely affected by his death. Even though Hamlet has learned the truth of his father’s death by his uncle, he is indecisive. He hesitates and cannot bring himself to kill Claudius. At the right moment in which Hamlet could have murdered Claudius he becomes doubtful. It is because Claudius is speaking his prayers to God and Hamlet is unsure if he should strike in fear that he will be sent to hell.

While in the dark, dreary, congested truck, filled with “groans and muttered prayers,” his father advises him to think of something pleasant. Surprisingly, Amir does not consider Baba; his memory goes directly to Hassan. This thought is incongruent with the way he strives for Baba’s attention and recognition in his daily life.
