He doesn't want to become to familiar with the places or the people; thus, protecting himself from another painful loss. Similarly, in-order to protect himself, Will doesn't allow people to get too close to him.
Hassan has taken the blame for Amir their hole chidhood whilst they shot nuts at the neighbors dog and here he takes the risk of being attacked by Assef in order to get to the fallen kite for Amir. His kindness only emphasises the horror of the scene because it contrasts completely with Amir's inability to step up and protect his friend. Amir only thinks of himself and his want to please his father whilst Hassan thinks only of Amir “for you a thousand times over.” Hosseini doesn't give a detailed description of this scene. Every time it has the potential to become graffic, Amir takes his mind off of the situation. Only about a page and a half reflects the duration and the word ‘rape’ is not used.

When young and unfortunate, he can understand about ignorance, immorality and poverty, these three characteristics are exactly what he does not want to be. When grown up he begins to have a tendency to simplify the situations based around trivial standards that lead him to be unkind to his closest family and friends. This causes him to judge his own past actions very bitterly, never giving himself any credit for the good deeds that he has done. As he goes through his different situations in life he meets new people to form ‘Great Expectations’. The first character I want to talk about is Estella.
