In this contemporary love story, two people are thrown together against a backdrop of violence and circumstance in an unnamed Middle Eastern country. The author narrates in a deep pitch and warm tone. Saeed and Nadia confront their feelings for each other while fearing for their own safety as the city descends into chaos. Hamid delivers the themes of love, loss, and politics with a somber undertone that will remind readers that the details of his novel could be real life for many people around the world. The narrator's style is purposeful, measured, and dramatic. Each chapter leaves the listener waiting to hear what will happen next. M.R. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2017]
