It's a new twist on an old story! Reminded me a little of wicked. The narrator was very entertaining. I especially liked that the gods didn't act very god-like. All of their gifts and talents had turned into burdens!
The woman who narrated it, Shohreh Aghdashloo, is a native of Iran. She is an actress who was in The House of Sand and Fog. Her voice is so soothing. On occasion, she will mispronounce a word, which only adds to her charm. The book is about a young girl who becomes a rug maker. The story arc starts with her happy childhood, her move to the big city, being used by her distant relatives, and finally ends with her leading a life of her own choosing. Intertwined in her tale are several Iranian fairy tales, which give the book a bit of One Thousand and One Nights feel at times.
