The Kite Runner is without a doubt one of the best books I’ve read for my challenge so far. Although I’ve enjoyed almost every novel, short story, play, and poetry I’ve come across, not many have stood out the way this novel by Khaled Hosseini did. A lot of the books I’ve read are heavy in tone and subject matter, and Hosseini’s is no exception. But his gorgeous prose and earnest narrator elevate it to a level which truly captivates you.
It’s very helpful going into a movie with low expectations. That’s how I watched the new Charlie’s Angels, and I absolutely loved it. I think it was the movie’s silly pre-released lead single with Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Lana del Rey that put me off, but if I cast my mind back even further, I remember enjoying the initial trailer.
