Soneela takes her reading and characters seriously

As the only person in my book club who listens to audio, I am privileged to have the extra dimension of "READER" which I cannot share with them in my review. I can and often do, share a little of the audio to highlight a portion of the book I particularly enjoy. This reader, with the multitide of characters and accents, is able to portray these people and their accents authentically to help me distinguish who is who.

This book's character convergence does not feel contrived. The subject matter is dealt with three-dimensionally. Only the children are painted as angels on the planet...

Thumbs up.

Spellbinding

This book had me from the first paragraph. After a tsunami wipes out their home and family, two young girls are sucked into the underworld of human trafficking. The insights into how this world operates is gripping as are their stories. I chose this book because I am a fan of this narrator, and she did not disappoint, again speaking in Hindi, Russian, French, American, and Ukranian accents as she protrayed the different characters in this tale of darkness. I suspect the author may have been imagining himself as the hero of this tale, and I accept that. I think it was well-research, well-presented fiction, and I enjoyed it very much, one day walking an extra three miles while listening because I couldn't turn it off.
