    Khaled Hosseini, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I have loved this author's other books and was really looking forward to this one, but the story was often lost in the very poor performance. The female voice was fine, but the other two were not. Very disappointing.

    Paris, 1534. A student at the Catholic Collge de Montaigu, serving as a courier for the Inquisition, is murdered by members of an extreme Lutheran sect for the packet of letters he is carrying. His friend and fellow classmate Amaury de Faverges, the illegitimate son of the Duke of Savoy and an expert in astronomy and natural science, is recruited as his replacement and promised a decree of legitimacy if he can uncover the secret that threatens to overturn Catholicism and the reign of Franois I.

    The narrator's voice was often slurred and difficult to understand. I suggest you listen to the sample before purchase. i wish I had. I couldn't finish it.
