A moving insight
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I feel like it provided so much detail about life in Iran under a despotic regime. I struggled to stop listening, because I felt like I was a part of their lives.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Could pick one.
What does Nisha Joseph and Raj Sidhu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I think the bring expression to the book. Nisha, while I initially found her voice a bit airy, brought a sense of innocence to Leila.
I feel like a reader with a fuller voice may have added to the strength that Leila so clearly demonstrated, but it may have also taken away from the vulnerability of her experience.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
