I was really looking forward to his new book. My favorite book of his is by far Kite Runner. I thought his second book: A Thousand Splendid Suns was just okay. I had my hopes up for this latest book to be as great at Kite Runner but I ended up disappointed. I felt the story was very hard to follow at times. With the different narrators and the story changing direction really made it difficult to follow even though the sections in the story were long. On numerous occasions I found myself going back in the story to re-listen so I could have a better understanding of the story. Additionally, I would have preferred there be only one narrator and for the story to be told in chronological order. It would have made it a much better book. I prefer Hosseini being the narrator of his stories. I'm disappointed that I'll have to listen to the entire book again at some point in the future to fully make sense of the story and better understand the characters.
tell it in chronological order
not telling the story in chronological order and multiple narrators
I do enjoy most all audio editions of the books I read more so than print editions.
Christian Gray, I liked learning more about his character. More than just his sexual side.
Becca Battoe does a great job with all the characters.
