Narrator Susan Nezami moves listeners through images of the conflict in Syria that may have numbed us on the nightly news. She begins somberly with the unrest that grew in 2011, telling listeners in precise detail how the nation was turned upside down. Nezami is a strong narrator who recounts current events through the lives of four real-life people, used as main characters. Their presence anchors the listener as she describes the growing chaos of civil war. The trials and tribulations in the well-researched stories of Suleiman, Mohammad, and Abu Azzam serve as examples of the millions of people caught up in the struggle for power between the rebels and the regime. Nezami's gravitas resonates with the content, helping listeners make sense of this dense material. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
