Passage 2 “I had one last chance to make a decision. One final opportunity to decide who I was going to be. I could step into that alley, stand up for Hassan – the way he’d stood up for me all those times in the past – and accept whatever would happen to me. Or I could run. In the end, I ran.”
Passage 3 “I always felt like Baba hated me a little. And why not? After all, I had killed his beloved wife, his beautiful princess, hadn't I? The least I could have done was to have the decency to have turned out a little more like him.”
Passage 4 “I think that everything he did, feeding the poor, giving money to friends in need, it was all a way of redeeming himself. And that, I believe, is what true redemption is, Amir jan, when guilt leads to good”
Passage 5 “I didn’t want any of it – It was all blood money; Baba would have never thrown me a party like that if I hadn't won the tournament.

Guilt Event 6 As a final act of redemption, Amir goes back to Afghanistan and rescues Sohrab from the taliban. He ends up facing the leader of the division in Kabul, who ends up being Assef.
Guilt Setting Amir and Hassan talked about how the alley was a dark scary place to be around. Amir feels guilty for watching Hassan get raped in the dark alley and not standing up for him, which represents "Guilt and Redemption". If you hear somebody talking about a dark alley way you don't think of unicorns and rainbows. You automatically know it's a bad place where people have gotten hurt before.
Amir This character is guilt driven, everything he does is followed by guilt. And only by the end of the book does he redeem himself.
