by | Read by Assaf Cohen

Fiction • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Assaf Cohen is a flexible narrator whose dexterity is shown as a cast of characters grapples with growing conflict in Syria. Cohen switches from Hammoudi, the doctor, to Amal, the actress, as government surveillance and citizen unrest grow. Fans of world literature will find much to enjoy in this exploration of current events. As listeners are taken into a world of ambition, yearning, and danger, Cohen is steady and measured throughout. Listeners may find themselves racing through this surprisingly quick volume as they root for the characters to survive. Cohen is a capable narrator whose delivery stays true to the Arab roots of the story. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
