This book was wonderful: detailed, thoughtful, intimate. The audio version would be much better if there was an alternative narrator to the unabriged version.
This is a wonderful story! I had to get the print version too, (which I do occasionally just to mix it up. ) Although the narrator has wonderful expression and a soothing voice. I often didn't catch the first letter or syllable of a word and the meaning was lost to me. I went back and read passages for content and realized I was missing a lot. This is more significant in in this particular book, because some of the culturally different concepts/words are new for me, this may not be a problem if you are very familiar with events and topics surrounding partition in India. After about 1/2 of the book was read, I did acclimate and get better at guessing the consonants, but I do think the narrator needs to annunciate the beginnings of words a little more. Overall I would read this book next time, but the essence of the story remained intact.
