What disappointed you about Three Daughters of Eve?
It is a good book though I can't stand the narrater who reads all the Turkish dialogs in Indian accent. Nothing wrong with indian accent but is extremely different than turkish accent. It was so bad, I have to stop listing the book.
If you’ve listened to books by Elif Shafak before, how does this one compare?
I just finished listing The Architect's Apprentice by Elif Shafak which was quite good and the narrater done a great job on that book.
What didn’t you like about Alix Dunmore’s performance?
She has no idea about the turkish accent, she was reading all the turkish dialogs (all of the characters) with indian accent which made it so confusing and awful that I can't stand listing.
What character would you cut from Three Daughters of Eve?
none of them, nothing wrong with the storyline nor the book.
Liked the book as I do with all books of Elif Shafaq. The beginning is wonderful! however lacks the depth and magic of forty rules of love or architects apprentice. Doesn't do much justice to exploring its theme of Muslim women and their dilemmas either. No closure.
and yet because I like the politics of Elif Shafaq I found the book engaging.
A serious novel with thought provoking themes. Excellent listening and well narrated. I will now buy the book!

Loved the structure, moving from the present to various points in protagonist's past. Full of tension, but also beautiful reflections on happiness, love, religious faith, learning. Beautifully narrated too!

Would you try another book written by Elif Shafak or narrated by Alix Dunmore?
Elif Shafak writes with such insight of Istanbul and the Turkish culture, but the story is tragically ruined by the infuriatingly distracting fake ethnic accent attempted by this narrator.
