9.) It is ironic what happens to both Rahim and Baba. They had been very close friends and business partners for many years and
Rahim dies the same way Baba did.
10.) It is ironic that Assef in his arrogance made it possible for Amir and Sohrab to leave unmolested by the guards. He is so sure that he will be the victor over both Sohrab and Amir that he orders his guards to allow them to pass even before he is hit by the brass ball in Sohrabís slingshot.
11.) It is also ironic that Sohrab uses the brass ball from the very table in Assefís office. It is almost as if he has used Assefís own weapon against him.
12.) It is ironic that Sohrab bests Assef with a slingshot just as his father had done years before in protecting Amir from a younger
Assef. This time, unlike the first, Assef feels the shattering blow that Hassan never had to use.
13.) It is ironic when Amir breaks his promise about keeping Sohrab out of an orphanage, because he once again has betrayed his own flesh and blood.
14.) Ironically, it is the kites that draw Sohrab out of silence and his desire to escape into the folds of sleep. His father lived many of his most wonderful moments in life flying kites.
