Again, I'd be a kitten-murdering sadist if I gave this one star, so I'm going with two. I would have loved to read a short article about the Kabul Beauty School and I'm abstractly interested in the project, but the writing made me want to rip out my own fingernails with hedge clippers. Really, it's my own fault--this book is supposed to be accessible because the writing style is conversational and feels like you're just chatting with your hairdresser, and I should have remembered before taking this on a 30-hour plane trip that I hate being chatted with when I get my hair cut and deliberately seek out no-chatting salons.
