On pg. 305 Farid told Amir this “For you a thousand times over, Farid said.” This quote means that he wants Amir to get out of Pakistan and to get to Islamabad so both Sohrab and Amir can be safe and not get in the way of the Taliban.
Chapter 23 takes place in a hospital in Peshawar Pakistan
The setting affects the characters by keeping them in a hospital for the whole chapter and it affects the plot by giving Amir new injures that
he has to deal with and also including new characters like doctors and nurses to the story.
Amir has been beaten up by Assef in the previous chapter, and is now in the hospital paying for it.

Amir has changed...
"What you did was wrong, Amir Jan, but do not forget that you were a boy when it happened. A troubled little boy. You were too hard on yourself then, and you still are-I saw it in your eyes in Peshwar." ~ Rahim Khan (pg: 301)
