Good story, bad narration
Beautifully Written and Narrated
The writing style is excellent. The narrator also does a very goo job of reading the book and performing the relevant characters.
Hearing about all those details about the life, in general, in Iran during that era.
In addition to being a story based on facts, the book also provides a comprehensive insight into the customs and cultures of Iran and its people.
I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook.
