Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I purchased the novel at 6 pm today. Now it's 12 am and I don't want to go to bed...Could only put my iPhone down (listening on audible app) to charge the dead battery... Showered and blow dried my hair w earphones on!! Lol. One of the best fiction books I ever read! Thanks.

Where does The Forty Rules of Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
What did you like best about this story?
The story is straightforward and not tricky - and it's beautifully told. The poetry of Rumi and the relationship with Shams of Tabriz reflect well in the past as well as the present time. There is a gentleness in the story that I liked. The mundane-ness of a woman planning meals for her family -- I do this to escape life's realities. Maybe it's just the timing of this particular choice, but the story resonated on many levels. Can't wait to listen to more by this author.
What does Laural Merlington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Oh, the deliciousness of her deliberate pronunciation of each syllable gives the words weight and value. Loved it.
Any additional comments?
I'm well read and a tough critic -- I absolutely loved this story and it's delivery. Definitely worthwhile. So much so, I need to listen again - and I just finished it last week. Every aspect of the story and delivery were solid. Good work.
