    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book was a good view of Afghanistan and the people. While I appreciated the author reading the book it was hard to understand at some points.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    appropriate, no surprise. Very sad.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better diction


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe

    In 1918, after four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia to take a job as the lighthouse keeper on remote Janus Rock. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes only four times a year and shore leaves are granted every other year at best, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, the narrator. His voice is muffled, slurred and very difficult to catch many of the words. I had tried whisper sync for this book, which does not work correctly, however it has been helpful to check verbiage for the words not enunciated.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is very interesting, the author writes well with great description.


    What didn’t you like about Noah Taylor’s performance?

    Poor enunciation, slow slurred speech, terrible performance.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe
