A stellar trio of narrators delivers the alternating viewpoints in Sabaa Tahir’s contemporary young adult novel, All My Rage. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss this moving story from the author of the Ember in the Ashes series. Narrator Kamran R. Khan portrays Salahudin, whose vulnerability and poet’s soul shine as he tries to handle his father’s drinking and family debts—and his own tangled relationship with his ex-best friend Noor, played beautifully by Kausar Mohammed. Narrator Deepti Gupta’s deep voice expresses the graceful personality of Misbah, Salahudin’s mother, who also has lovingly guided Noor toward adulthood. The story shifts through their three perspectives, weaving a powerful story about pain, forgiveness, love, and hope.
