This affects Blacky in way that his self-esteem is almost non-existent, and the negativity is prominent throughout the novel. Examples of the neglect shown by his father are that of the time when Bob refers to Blacky as a ‘gutless wonder’, and the journey we take through the story of Blacky’s deteriorating respect for him. The ‘gutless wonder’ incident was a influential part of the novel, as Blacky realises that his Dad isn’t one to take advice of someone he feels is inferior than him, thus saying, ‘My own son, a gutless wonder. A gutless fucking wonder!’ When Blacky explains to his father about the storm, Bob insults him rather than swallow his pride and takes his son’s advice on board.
It was not a reality that he was ready to deal with so he brushed it off as nothing. His use of ethos explained why he had to take control; his son’s life was slowly declining, between the daily drinking to the constant solitude and nearly drowning in a puddle, it was escalating as his own life had. A strong statement made by Lynch was “I want to remember him
I tell them that in another month I'll be back in school and working at a better-paying, less humiliating job.”(27) Even Franklin's dad adds to this pressure when he finds out about his son's job as he can hardly understand why his son would take such a lowly job, “'Wendy's? When did this happen?' I want to tell him that it didn't just happen, that it wasn't an accident, but I am stuck wondering how to make him understand...”(29) Like everyone else, Franklin's dad is at a loss for words at his son's
The author made clear that the family did not like his father, but it was difficult to decide if Yunior loved his father. In a few instances, Yunior describes his father in an affectionate way. Because Yunior often threw up in the van, his father toped that Yunior would become familiar with the van by driving him around in it. When his father tried to cure him of his carsickness, Yunior “looked forward to [their] trips...These were the only times [Yunior] and Papi did anything together. When [they] were alone he treated [Yunior] much better, like maybe [he] was his son or something” (312).

Amir and Hassan where both concealed of the fact that Hassan was Baba’s true son despite Baba’s himself stating that ‘lying is stealing someone’s right to the truth’. The fact that Amir was finally told this information by Rahim Khan only highlights the idea that he was the only supportive male figure he had in his life, and the lack of communication between Amir and Baba makes Amir question the true identity of his father.
