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!
I found the narrators voice hard to listen to at the beginning, but definitely worth a listen to.
"Wonderful story - annoying voice"
Its a great story
i found his voice annoying, but that's aa personal comment and a shame as its a great story and this is the first time I think I'll buy the book and read it
who has the time?
"Excellent Story but Hate the Narrator"
I would read another of his books but not listen to anything narrated by him..
Hate his voice and accent..
A quite beautiful book. Heart- wrenching story - beautifully written - beautifully narrated. I had seen the film already and whilst there were a couple of changes from the book, I still thoroughly enjoyed reading/listening to the book. Probably one of the best........
I loved it.
"Terrible narration ruined it."
I just kept wanting this book to end. I drifted in and out of it, didn't fully concentrate.
It has potential, maybe I will blame the narration not gripping me enough? hmmmm
I finished this book in 3 days as I could not stop reading/listening to it.
The story is beautifully constructed and tugs at your heart-strings on a number of occasions.
For me the most memorable part has to be the ending as it makes you reflect on all that had happened throughout the story, as if you were a part of it.
Khaled Hosseini is a wonderful author/narrator and his voice fits perfectly to the voice of Amir.
I highly recommend this book, but fair warning: this isn't a 'light' read.
"for you, a thousand times over"
loved it! recommended it to others already! Beautiful descriptions. Vivid writing style!definitely a book to talk about and remember.
