Where does Strange Times, My Dear rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
What a great idea! I feel like I can finally relate to a culture that has been isolated from us from so long. Great person who decided to connect our cultures. I hope this book becomes successful! I will write a longer review when I'm completely finished with this audio...
I was really excited to see this book exists as an audiobook. I have not tried listening to something of a similar format before - but really thought a sampling of different Iranian fiction and poetry would be fantastic.
Some stories / excerpts were good, a lot I barely made it through. The narrator tried to vary his voice, but frankly by the end of the fiction section when I heard another dragged out and breathy "woman's voice" I literally couldn't take it and skipped that story entirely.
Poetry was pretty good / I wish that came first when I had enthusiasm.
Overall I think it is not great as an audiobook, also it is no substitute for one work of fiction - BUT I do hope to read more by the couple of authors that I did enjoy
