It worked to kill time and I did not dislike it, but I wouldn't pay for the book.
Top 5 favorites... All of Hosseini's books are in my top 5. Hard to choose which is my fave!
Yes. The plot has so many twists and turns, I could listen again and see what I missed the first time. Plus, the narration of this story is superb and I could see each character as he spoke. Some narrators are boring or don't know how to change it up. This is my favorite one yet!
The narration by the author was superb and I truly enjoyed listening to him. The descriptive story telling, the raw emotions, the tug and pull of every chapter; I couldn't stop listening and when I did, I couldn't wait to start again. I've read 1,000 Slendid Suns, which was again, phenomenal, and just purchased his latest novel which I cannot wait to dive into!
The best lesson learned was that a lifetime of guilt and self doubt can be such a waste of ones life. Moreover, how quickly one can redeem themselves and the true bond of family, family secrets, and pure love for ones brother can save a broken soul and find patience in forgiveness.
Gripping, beautiful, and terrifying
The descriptions bring you to a far away place, the details make your heart jump for joy or scream in disbelief, and the characters become a part of you somehow. Wanting them to succeed and wishing them to escape the horrors and tragedies of war and worn out beliefs. This book was so far out from my normal reads, but I feel as if I made a new friend or two by reading it.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to expand their library or their knowledge! Beautiful and gut wrenching all at once... Not for anyone who is looking for upbeat happy times though.
