    Khaled Hosseini, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.

    FanB14 says: "Does the End Justify the Means"
    "Though provoking, emotional, and beautiful."

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the way the different stories expand slowly, each offering a unique perspective on life, but all with a common thread and connection.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    They did a good job differentiating, mainly because there was a woman reading for all the parts centering on women, and two different men for the male characters. For multiple characters in each story, the narrators did a good job of making it clear who was who.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried. A lot.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the male readers has an occasional weird way of emphasizing parts of the reading that grated a bit on me, but not enough to make me dislike listening. There is a raw believable quality to all the readers, which was encouraging as this was my first audio book. It helped that they all sounded Middle Eastern (I am just assuming, here), so none of the names or Farsi words sounded mispronounced. One of the narrators was the author, which was great.
