The story itself, the language that is beautiful but straightforward enough for listening even for only occasional listeners like myself
So many dramatic moments right from the beginning. Without giving away later parts, surely Mariam's relationship with her father is pretty heart-wrenching.
Clear, easy to listen to, pleasant voice fitting the story.
Mariam, I guess obviously, but other characters too. Unfortunately her husband seemed realistic. (In the news right now, marriage of an 8-year-old to 40-year-old in Yemen and reportedly the girl dies from bleeding...still being checked by authorities.)
Be sure to get the version you want, abridged or unabridged. I thought I had bought the unabridged version and only learned at the end that it was the abridged. My fault, and Audible handled it well, but now that I've already listened to the abridged, not sure I'll go back to listen again. (I had already read the whole book a few years ago.)
