Terrible waste of precious credit
I found the story reviews intriguing so I have bought the book, but now I wish I hadn't. The plot is unbearably dull and predictable, the characters two-dimensional (if that).
What made me struggle through half of it is the narrator - he did an amazing job of a book way unworthy of his talents.

Riveting and Timely
This is a great book and performance especially considering what is happening across the globe now relative to refugees. Very well done and thought provoking.
