Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would not recommend this book. It starts well, with a human interest story, but changes to the laborious making of political points, and using the characters in an unreasonable way to do this. I found the Sikh angle quite interesting, but the politics of India seemed to take over and sabotage the plot. I struggled to finish it, and skipped bits near the end. The book is also far too long, and I usually like longer books, but this is ponderous.
Would you ever listen to anything by Shauna Singh Baldwin again?
No. I have already listened to her other book, "What the Body Remembers" which is actually quite good with a beginning that draws you in straight away.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Yolande Bavan?
Possibly, though she has an odd way of reading sentences '...'says Darmani.' pausing for too long after dialogue, which seemed rather odd.
Was The Selector of Souls worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
I could have returned it, but I wanted the novel to work, so persisted.
