I don't know. I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns, both the story and the narration of it. And it could be that the story in this book is just as intriguing, but I cannot get past the horrible narration to even follow the story line.
I am very interested in learning about that part of the world and its history.
I have to speed up the female narrator's voice...it drags so much. Like nails on a chalkboard. One of the male narrators does a good job, but the other one is also very difficult to listen too. I don't know which of the male narrators is which though to say who it is.
I am hoping that the book itself is as excellent as his prior two books - I just loved reading them. Its just the audio version is so hard to listen to.
I have listened to many audio books, some are excellent, some are just okay. This is really not okay.
I will be listening again...the story is so intricate, it takes more than one read to get all of the details. Plus it is just a delight to listen to.
All of Diana Gabaldon's books in the Outlander series are just fantastic reads!
She is so much more than a narrator - I have listened to several audio books and most narrators just read the story with a little inflection here or there. Davina embodies each character, you can hear her crying when the character does.. all of the emotions are there and she reads each character to perfection.
"You can't go home again...or just maybe you can"
Please give Davina what ever award there is for excellence in narrating!
