Looking for something to inspire you? Leave your politics outside and listen to this. Then work to reclaim America. I'm sorry this is only available in its abridged version.
I was bowled over by this book. Loved all the amazing historical details. This is an author who has done his homework. Mr Rushdie managed to make me sympathetic to all the characters in spite of their conflicting stories. So much tragedy. So little hope.
I didn't mind the reader. I thought he did a good job of distinguishing the many characters.
Since I had enjoyed Crime and Punishment and The Idiot, I thought I would complete the trilogy. I did listen to the whole thing but it was a hard slog because I didn't like any of the characters. Since I didn't like any of the characters, I also didn't care about their deep personal struggles.
I love long books but please give me characters that I can care about!
