One of the best books I've read in long time. The way the characters overlap and intertwine is a magical mystery and journey throughout the lifetime of one little girl and how one event can trigger a lifetime of consequences. The two narrators including the author and two well known Iranian actors living in the US makes this book come more to life than if had read it Although I did listen to it twice to connect all the dots so to speak.... and it connects well. They way each chapter sums up then has a musical interlude and a lesson is learned or the chapter summed up in a wonderful way. Don't miss this book if you like reading about families, feelings and consequences.
I know this may seem strange but the movie "Pulp Fiction" comes to mind only in the way that the characters overlap and you learn more about them in later chapters, making this book somewhat of a mystery.
No, yet excellent performances. Love that the author is one of the narrators.
When Pari the long lost sister of Abdullah meets and visits with Pari the daughter of Abdullah, her niece yet more her sister..
Someone who likes to figure out things.
Maybe reading instead of listening but my book club didn't like get it either and we're not a bunch of kids.
Try another author, don't see how it can have been a best seller.
