TKR. Chapter 24

随感

临近结尾,我感受到了阿米尔和妻子之间相互理解,二人融为一体的亲密感,让人心生羡慕,丈夫遇到的所有问题都能得到妻子的理解和支持,这大约是作为妻子最难能可贵的品质,也是阿米尔作为丈夫最值得珍惜的!文章写到最后还是稍稍有一点波澜,没有像我最初以为的那样顺利的发展下去,索拉博的领养手续未能如愿以偿的进行下去,阿米尔和律师想了各种办法,索拉博得知阿米尔想借助孤儿院时,内心一度崩溃,不能接受,最后选择了极端的方法,索拉博内心的痛苦真的是常人所无法理解的。

Summary
That there are bad people in this world, and sometimes bad people stay bad. Sometimes you have to stand up to them. What you did to that man is what I should have done to him all those years ago. You gave him what he deserved, and he deserved even more.

Faried finally took Amir and Soharb to Islamabad and found a hotel for them. On their way to Islamabad, they passed the  famous Mosque which is the biggest mosque in the world and catch Soharb's light on it. After they arrived there, Amir give him two thousand dollars in order to express his gratitude. Even if Amir could walk, he still need some pills to relieve the pain. To his surprise, when he woke up, Soharb was not in bed. He struggled out of bed, checked the bathroom, looked in the narrow hallway outside the room but didn't find him. It almost drove him crazy without finding Soharb. He beg the host to drive him to the Shah Faisal Mosque. Thank god, he found Soharb in there.

Sadly, the process of adoption didn't went on wheels. The INS refused Amir's request because he cannot provided the certificate of that Soharb was a orphan. He then asked a lawyer for help. But the way that the lawyer provided is terrible.After Amir told Soharb that he will sent him to an orphanage again, he felt hopeless and tried suicide.
