The Ending

Any additional comments?

The narrator has done a splendid job of bringing each character to life with her voice. From Godavari’s modesty filled tone to Sreeja’s innocence to the American accent of Neeraja and Vanaja, each character has been distinctively portrayed in the audio version.

Bit slow but nice story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Sure. It was a nice short listen about a culture I don't normal delve into.

Any additional comments?

Love foreign voices, but I will admit it was a bit hard to understand at times. That being said, it didn't stop me from listening. Just took a bit longer to follow it. I enjoyed it overall.
