Today I mostly watched tv, though I did take a walk in the afternoon and then went out to dinner with Shannon in the evening.
I was terribly disappointed in one of the plot turns in The Kite Runner. There was just a ridiculous coincidence, and I hated it. I've read books in which coincidences tied everything up in a surprising and satisfying manner, or humorous, or whatever, but this just felt ridiculous. Also, the villain is very comic-bookish. I like my characters with a bit more complexity. So I'm still listening to the book -- nearing the end, actually -- but I'm less impressed than I was at first. Next I'm going to get a Michael Ondaatje book from the library, which I trust will be better written.
