The narrator is not a native English speaker. She has a hard time pronouncing English words, is just terrible in pronouncing Persian, Spanish, French and Russian too. I understand that you don’t need to be fluent in all to be able to deliver well but they could’ve at least chosen someone who was familiar with Persian.
She attempts at different voices and accents but they all come out as an exhausted, old man. Everyone speaks with what is her attempt at a Russian accent. It’s just terrible. It’s so annoying to listen to. I’m not sure who chose this narrator but they failed miserably.
Such a shame since the story is great and Donia Bijan is an amazing writer.
Well developed characters weave a rich story. Sensuous food and flowers evoke taste and smell with a mastery rare in fiction. The characters' relationships and decisions stir me to continuing reflection on how I myself want to choose to live. A lavish story.
