Amir is 20 now, he knows that Baba is financially strugging, why do you think he hasn't he picked up a part time job?
Do you think that Baba really thinks that Amir will be successful as a writer?
Why does Amir love the ocean and sunsets so much?
If Amir was never born, do you think Baba would have ever left Afghanistan?
Do you think Amir is still envious of Baba and Hassan's relationship?

Salaam, bachem
" Hello, my child. "
Foreshadowing. Amir and Baba talk briefly of Soraya's past, they later find out the full story but at the moment the reader is left only knowing that Soraya does not have a good past
