The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker

The Art of Hearing Heartbeats - Jan-Philipp Sendker

Read by Kim A: The blurb built up expectations for me of mystery and adventure, of the daughter tracking down details of her father’s prior life and reasons for his disappearance. The reality was that in chapter 2 she arrives in Burma and is approached by someone who says ‘I was expecting you, here is your father’s story’, which was not very satisfying to me. From there a love story unfolds and the mystery is solved, but it was not what I was expecting.
