First part of the book is good, her recall of the time in Iran and their escape to safety. Story slowed to a turtle crawl to the point I didn't finish the book. Narrator was super annoying- another reason I didn't finish the book- annoying voices as she tried to act out different people or a small child's voice. Wouldn't recommend this book, however, Not without My Daughter is one of the best books I have ever read.
Once I started the book, I could not put it down. It is very much worth the read. I love her story.
