Narrators Vikas Adam and Soneela Nankani work together to depict the lives of several families over a fifty-year span on the Indian subcontinent. Nankani tackles the interior lives of the female characters, while Adam uses his deep baritone to portray the men. They toggle between Bangladesh in the 1950s and modern America, giving the listener a sense of the breadth of people's experiences at significant moments in history. The story begins with Jamir and Honufa, a couple struggling make ends meet in a fishing village on the coast of Bangladesh. From there the story spins outward to WWII, involving British and Japanese characters, and follows with the creation of Pakistan as experienced by Rahim and Zahira. Happily, this ambitious novel is safely in the hands of seasoned narrators. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
