This amazing story is one for our times. My only downgrade on the book is the narrator -- it is distracting to hear a first person narrative written by a man read by a woman. However, if you can get by that, this book should be required reading/listening by all government officials and military.
This book should be required reading by all high schools, government officials, military and their families! In today's world, we hear so much about Muslim extremists and how they have hurt the US. This book tells us how we can best fight the extremists -- through education, and specifically through education of women, while reminding us the most Muslims are just like you and me.
The fact that Ed reads this book was a big draw for me: I had read an excerpt in Reader's Digest and wanted to get the whole background on Ed & Johnny. I should have been warned by the fact that the highest quality on this book is a 2--the audio was excruciating to listen to--and the music was even worse. However, it's a great story--but one that might be better read than listened to.
Great story, well read. But the music between the chapters needs to be toned down. Don't listen to it without having access to volume control!
If you like Wicked, you need to continue the experience by listening to Son of a Witch.
While I love reading Pratchert, the voices in this audio book add so much more to the enjoyment! The reader does English, bored-English, and Scottish voices impeccably!
