Hey, I'm doing pretty much all the same texts as you (except I do a Doll's House not the Handmaid's Tale) - nice to find someone else doing them Congrats on the A at AS, that's fab! I'm also aiming for an A* (or A), just wondering how you're finding the Kite Runner? I love the book but I'm struggling to link it to social and political protest?!? Bc it seems more like a personal atonement novel than a purposeful protest with all the characteristics present in other protest texts? If it's a protest, who's it against? Amir himself? Obviously it's against the Soviet invasion and Taliban and stuff but that doesn't explain the Hassan stuff which I think is more central. I suppose I'm struggling to link it to a genre I don't think it fits into. What's your take? Also, what are your favourite and least favourite texts? And how are you finding the NEA? Sorry I'm rambling aha
