Not a reading of the book.

This is a bad recording of a question and answer session with the author. Only a very short reading of the book.

Would you try another book from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and/or Robin Desser and Francesca Choy-Kee ?

I would definitely try another book from Chimamanda, she's a phenomenal author. However, this was NOT an audible of the book. It was a taping of a discussion of the book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie again?

The description of the audible would have to be explicitly clear on whether it is a book reading, or a discussion on the book in order for me to make that decision.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robin Desser and Francesca Choy-Kee ?

I would have cast Chimamanda herself.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
