All My Rage

A Novel

By Sabaa Tahir
Narrated by: Deepti Gupta, Kamran R. Khan & Kausar Mohammed
Length: 10 hours 24 minutes

All My Rage

“Amazing and intense! Not light subject matter (note the long trigger warning) but such a rewarding read because of its depiction of the immigrant experience, Pakistani culture, and a willingness to tackle tough issues. Friendships and characters are heartwarming. AMR never loses its sense of optimism even when dealing with tragedy.”
