Everything I look for in a podcast!
I thoroughly enjoyed this on every level! First this is incredibly enthralling. The story grabs you from the first sentence and doesn't let go as it takes you through unexpected twists and turns. It's incredibly unique - I love listening to things that aren't like everything else out there. And, the details included throughout the story really brought it to life. I highly recommend this series! I can't wait for more episodes!
Riveting to the core
I’m blown away by how deeply engrossing this story is and the narration. Danielle’s writing evokes so many emotions and memories for me, from my time living in Cambridge.
You can feel the steamy heat at the club as the night picks up, you have a vivid picture of the characters and you can feel as the tension between Yesenia and Raj when Danielle brings them together that night.
What a matrix of emotions and the many shades of Raj. Absolutely brilliant and beautiful! The music perfectly paired with the mood, you feel like you are standing right there, watching as Raj moves through the maze of his complicated mind. The narration is second person has quite the effect.
Eagerly waiting for the next episode.
I rarely revisit items that I hear or read, but this one made me come back for a second listen. A lot to think about. I will be back.
