I love the story and the details were amazing as the story was being read. It made sense to have a female narrator but her voice was a little irritating as she kind of spoke in a high tone at times but luckily the writing was on point with descriptions and well thought out details. I love the story line and characters... im highly recommending 🤓

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If Amani was consistent and believable. There is no explaining on how she's a sharp shooter in a society that oppresses women. And then there is the whole fact that Amani was willing to possibly die for a stranger because she feels bad for him, but then she leaves a different guy for dead that had already saved her life twice. It just didn't make character sense, especially since the author didn't take time in the narration to explain why Amani treated these situations so differently.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I thought Jin himself was the most interesting. The least interesting was the lack of details on gun shooting in a book whose synopsis says that Amani is more gunpowder than girl. I dunno, I guess I expected a cool gun element but all we get is bland sentences about the fact that Amani shot her gun.
What does Soneela Nankani bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She made me last longer because if it were me reading traditionally, I would have stopped way sooner.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
This is the author's first published book, and it seems to be getting a lot of positivity from most people who have read it so far. I think she has a lot of potential to improve. I loved the premise of this story and I thought she had the right idea about Amani and I thought Jin was charming. I'm sure she will improve.
