    Story
    (2)

    As a National Public Radio reporter covering the last stand of the Taliban in Afghanistan's southern borderland, Sarah Chayes became deeply immersed in the attempt to rebuild a broken nation. With her NPR assignment finished in early 2002, she left reporting to help turn around the country's fortunes, accepting a job running a nonprofit founded by President Hamid Karzai's brother. With remarkable access to leading players in the postwar government, Chayes witnessed a tragic, perverse turn of events.

    Overall

    I rarely give up on a book, but I just can't make it through this one. I wish I'd read the readers' reviews before getting the audible version. I know it's a good book, I love hearing Sarah Chayes on NPR, but OH MY GOODNESS what a horrible narration! She plods along expressionless, like it's painful for her to read. I'm amazed that the author would allow her words to be so warped and made boring. I'm very disappointed,as I did want to *listen* to this book, but I will have to read the book myself if I want it to have any of the meaning that the author intended.
