Three words just won't do it. Mr. Hosseini is a true treasure and this book is the epitome of the expression "anything worth having is worth waiting for." The story has lingered with me so strongly that I haven't wanted to start another book -- and I am envious of people who haven't read it because they get to read it for the first time! The reason I gave the performance 4 stars instead of 5 is that the accent of one of the narrators made him somewhat difficult for me to understand until I was able to adapt to it, which I eventually did. Thank you, Mr. Hosseini.
The story was so strong that I was able to completely give myself over to it and allow it to carry me along.
The narrators facilitated a feeling of "cultural presence" that I would not have had if I had read the book.
I'm getting older - don't wait six years to publish your next book!
If you have ever loved a rascal, particularly a Southern rascal, then you will love this book. If you are a Daddy's girl, then you will love this book. It is a biography of Rick Bragg's grandfather, a most extraordinary man, and it is written by an extraordinary author whose bloodline runs true. Thank you, Mr. Bragg, for sharing Charlie with us... I loved him too.
