    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Overall

    Absolutely one of the best "listens" I've had in a long time.
    I actually went out and bought the hardback to put in my favorites collection. I don't have a lot of contemporary fiction in my collection. At some points I had to stop to contemplate and either enjoy, or cry, or tear my hair out with frustration.
    His voice was great,,some accent but totally easy to understand. It added to the culture of the book.
    We read this for our book club. I would reccommend pairing this with the novel "The House of Sand and Fog".
    This is the kind of book that builds understanding and empathy for those that are different from us.
    Awesome.

    New York Times best-selling author Diane Mott Davidson has taken readers by storm with clever mysteries filled with tantalizing plots and mouthwatering recipes. In her 12th novel, her tastiest tale yet, the ingenious storyteller whips up a rich soufflé of murder and mischief.

    Overall

    I love the character, Goldy. BUT, I could not stand this reader. She made awful slurpping sounds,,,and she sounded so OLD. I cound not relate her to Goldy at all. In fact I wanted to stop listening because she made me think of Goldy as OLD,,,smacking sounds,,,gravely throat (smoker?) YECH!! Her voice reminds me of the old female doctor on the show Evergreen.
    Wow! I realize how important the narrator is. I will be much more careful in my selections. If she continues to use this narrator,,I will read the rest in print.
