"Painted and insightful picture of Afghanistan"
It's a story of honour, regret and redemption; and two families divided by ethnic prejudice.
"Amazing, heart breaking"
This book is truly amazing and heart breaking. I l was adicted to this book. I loved the metaphors and the beautiful style of writing. I laughed, cried and cried some more! It's a five star book.
An incredibly moving story. Listened to it when driving or cooking and often had tears in my eyes. Once I was used to the reader's accent I enjoyed the fact that I was listening to the correct pronunciation of the names and places.
One of the best books i have ever read, gripping from start to finish
Wow well worth it , narrator great too !!
An insite into the truth
"great narration and story"
it is beautifully narrated and story was full of emotions and ups and downs. liked it very much !!!
"Worth the read!"
Great performance and compelling story. Not an easy book to stomach by any means though!
"Great story well told"
I really enjoyed this book. Sent me through a rollercoaster of emotions. Happy , sad , joy, shock, laughter, sorrow. Great story from the mouth of the author.
Beautifully constructed story with huge depth of character. An emotive journey that is travelled as much as read.
"Best book I've read/listen to in a long time!"
I loved this book. Would recommend it to anyone. Cried and laughed out loud. Definitely a must read.
"Better at x1.25 speed"
I really wanted to like this book but it's taken me about a month to listen to the first 6 hours. However I recently read someone's review of the Audible app where they praised the ability to increase the play speed. I decided to give that a try (in all honesty in a desperate bid to get the book finished so I could move on) and found myself riveted for the last 6 hours of the book, finishing it in two days!
