Although, both Amir and Rahim Khan tell their stories in a formal manner. Hosseini does this to add ferocity to the story, whilst the change of manner of voice suggests a significant change to the reader.

It also allows sole focus on the story Rahim Khan is telling, once again pointing to extreme significance and importance within the story.

The first notable one of these is his use of the time stream. The author (and thus the narrator) is seen to manipulate this with impunity – pausing, fast-forwarding and rewinding it at will.

His unique style of writing in stream of consciousness is very effective because it accurately demonstrates what the characters in the novel are feeling and thinking. Faulkner believes society assumes things of people and that they have no right to do so. The reader knows this because of him saying “it's the way the majority of folks is looking at him when he does it.” It's not that someone is crazy, it's the way people look at the actions of someone and society accuses that someone of being socially
