A great listen with real world information and applicable ideas/thoughts. Ill need to listen to it again :)
Riveting, Life, Reality
"The Reluctant Fundamentalist" - because it's the same author so similar writing style
"The Kite Runner" because it also tells a history of a few people and how they're lives are so intertwined and affected by the actions of each other
"And the Mountains Echoed" because this story also traverses generations, relationships and lives
Yes! Amazing narration - this narrator is awesome - he's just amazing I love his narration...going to look for more titles that he narrated!
When Mumtaz makes a decision - near the end of the story
Wow! I'm impressed with this author...ive read both his books, and I'm wondering what else he's written...would love to read more by him - Mohsin Hamid you just became one of my favorite authors!
It's one of the best stories that I've listened to on Audible.
Buta Singh. So funny and so well characterized.
Whenever the sunset club would meet!
perfect name - wouldn't re-name it. Khushwant Singh is amazing in this story!
Great story - love the way the author intertwines the characters and spans 40 years in just 4 hours.
The narrator is amazing, the story is simply incredible. You almost can't believe that the events are something which a human being have endured. I think this book is such a clever combination of history interwoven in the life of Sichan Siv. I really wanted to learn more about the history of Cambodia and this book was a real glimpse from someone who experienced the atrocities and life of the 1970s Cambodia.
The flow of the story, the way the story continuously ties in with the family of the character and also talks about the geography of Cambodia.
Sichan Siv - the main character - i just really liked how the main character was played.
YES! i wanted to but couldn't! One of the reasons is that it's a very long story so it needs to be heard in chunks plus - I enjoyed going back and checking out the places Sichan Siv talks about online, looking at the map and seeing his journey as the book went on.
This book is simply phenomenal. It's a real glimpse into the history of his life and his country - Cambodia!
This was an amazing story!...I learned much about the era of the 50's and 60's relating to black and white families especially of the Mississippi area...
The book was not only amazingly written but amazingly narrated...awesome characterizations and real life voices - really made it hard to turn it off!
Wishing that there is a sequel ...would love to know how it goes for all the characters in the future!
