Awesome Narration

Where does The Temple Is Not My Father rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best ever.

What did you like best about this story?

The Plot and its characters

Which character – as performed by Shruti Kapdi – was your favorite?

Godavari

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

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.

A glimpse in the life of the Devdasi

A glimpse in the life of the sufferers of the Devdasi system.

The book is simple but I didn’t quite get the ending.

The narrator is fantastic and talented.
