Omid Djalili's six best books

Omid Djalili is a British Iranian stand-up comedian and actor. He appeared in Gladiator as a slave trader and was Cairo prison warden Gad Hassan in The Mummy.

One of his six best books, as told to the Daily Express:
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

I remember refusing to put this down even as I walked through airport security.

It's a tremendously moving account of communist-ruled Afghanistan in the Eighties and opens you up to the horrors of that but you also empathise with the characters. Wonderful.
Read about another book on the list.

The Kite Runner is among Ramin Karimloo's six favorite books and Roger Moore's six best books.
