This is an audiobook I could not have finished if it weren't for the strong narration by Shohreh Aghdashloo who is a wonderful storyteller. The book is a sort of Perils of Pauline in 17th century Iran. The characters are not well developed or even coherent, but the setting is interesting and you learn a lot about Iranian culture. I have always wondered about the daily lives of people in different times in different countries and I found that historical fiction aspect of the book interesting. I found the lack of character depth frustrating because the book is so long and the story wanders everywhere but I have to admit I listened until the end. I think the narration made me want to finish, I don't think I could have finished this book if I were reading it on pages instead of hearing it.
