This book was very different from my normal taste. I enjoyed the setting of Tanzania, Africa and I also was very interested in the humanitarian side of this story, the political violence that started this story and the unlikely love story all in one. These two are brought together because of violence and grief and they really helped each other move forward. I think my favorite thing was the ending, I love that we get a flashback from before this book started and got closure for some questions I still had. The one thing I didn't really like was the lack of descriptions. I couldn't tell you what the characters looked like nor do I have much of a vision in my head of of the setting or places they were. I also couldn't wrap my head around Jack and how he was born in Tanzania but sounded and acted completely american?? It didn't effect the story line but I just like to imagine the people and places when I listen to a book.
The narration was GREAT!! Megan Tusing was amazing, she really brought Rodel to life! Zachary Webber was great as always, he always brings so much to his characters!

The story was beautifully written and perfectly narrated. I loved every minute, from the first sentence to the ironic end. Will definitely be reading more from this author.

Was recommended this author from a friend. I enjoyed the wonderful range of emotions the storytelling took me through, and it was very easy to feel in the moment in the scenes and scenarios. Some of the characters were very 'Hollywood' in their description and the plot/story arch panned out fairly predictably.
My only gripe was that I didn't much enjoying the narrators - the accents were a bit all over the place and they didn't seem to be able to add tempo or nuances in the right places. And how they pronounced some words sounded like computer-generated pronunciations; a bit robotic and therefore spoiling the sentence as you had to replay it to make sure you heard it correctly.
But I did enjoy it and would probably buy the book version so I can read it in my own voice to fully appreciate it.
Wow this was just amazing. Absolutely amazing! Beautiful, incredible and simply amazing! Your in for a treat listening to this.
