Fail to remember sequels as well as reboots. My preferred method to revisit an acquainted story is to uncover it from a various point of view.
I fell for this narration gadget in my senior high school English class, when our teacher presented us to Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz and also Guildenstern Are Dead.” If you’re not accustomed to the play, it retells Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” from the perspective of two small characters who barely get a mention in the original.
