Okay, if you aren't a Smithite, you might not get this book. But for those of us who love his movies, Smodcasts, and writing in general, this book is great. The pauses in narration of the book to add off the cuff are hilarious. It was nice to hear the author tell his story in his own words. Not the ghost writers some celebs have.
As in previous reviews, Gigi Bermingham is not the right narrator for this book. You would think one would research a bit with the author and previous narrator before beginning. I find my mind traveling on what should be a great story, but totally is being ruined by high pitched squealing. May have to get this in written form.
Please, can we have Marguerite Gavin redo this book?
I am quite sure I would have enjoyed this if the narrator didn't deliver in such a monotone voice.
I only got this book because of the advertisements for it. And I don't regret it. I will be looking into more alex Cross novels for future listening.
This is what I call a driveway book. Once I get home from my commute, I can't leave my car to turn off the book. And yet I don't want it to end. As a rule I don't like multiple narrations, but for me, this book flows.
Thank you again for a wonderful story.
When I read "The Kite Runner" by this author, I was totally enthralled with his story telling. So much so that I immediately listened to the book again. So when I heard that Khaled Hosseini had a new book out, I jumped right on it.
For me this book was even better. Even though I have another book waiting to be listened to, I have started this book again.
As with the previous book, the story telling is so good you can smell the spices, feel the bombs, and most all the pain of the characters.
Thank you Khaled Hosseini, you sir are an excellent story teller.
I love this series of books, but have to say that this one fell a bit short for me.
I felt as if I was a listening a b rated film noir. The story dragged, was written something a 4th grader would write. Not a book that I would recommend.
