In an easygoing tone Nick Nikon narrates this hair-raising true story of bravery, resilience, and friendship. He brings to listeners the adventures of Matthieu Aikins and his friend, Omar, an Afghani driver/translator, as they attempt to leave Kabul for good in 2016. Nikon's style is initially casual and conversational but increases in tension while recounting the growing desperation of Westerners to help their friends and counterparts who are running out of options in the war-torn city. This is a story of two close friends told against a backdrop of complicated historical events. Nikon takes listeners through Matthieu and Omar's eventual use of human smugglers to get out of Afghanistan. Their harrowing journey is told with compassion and empathy that open up the listening experience. M.R. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2022]
