My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I listened to the audiobook (great decision) and I felt a bit disappointed and a lot confused. The book has way too many characters, listening to ALL of their stories was unnecessary. I liked how the narration is done by Khalid and 2 others (a woman and a man). I also liked the accent of the narrators (Afghani, French, etc) changed based on characters. I would have preferred if Khalid would have cut down some of the characters and focused on the main ones. I couldn’t connect with the characters because they were going and coming in chapters! The only parts that I really connected with were Pari and Abdulla’s childhood and Nila Wahdati’s days in Kabul.
