Another Compelling Listen
The continued story from The Breadwinner. It was heartfelt, plausible and very engaging. Myself and my 2 girls, aged 10 & 12, would definately recommend this listen.
Having listened to The Breadwinner first then Parvana's Journey, we were initially disappointed that the new narrator did not use the same pronunciations as in the first, however that distraction did not last long. She too spoke clearly and well paced and with clear and consistent characterizations.
