What did you love best about An Imperfect Offering?
This book offers an honest, unflinching look at a number of humanitarian crises around the word and throughout the past several decades. In a way that few other accounts have, the author delves into the myriad problems and very real danger aid organizations face in the field, as well as the mental trauma that stays with them for a lifetime.
What was one of the most memorable moments of An Imperfect Offering?
The authors descriptions of ordinary things in his life back home that trigger repressed memories from the genocide he witnessed in Rwanda.
Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. I can't see how anyone could take in so much heart-breaking information in one sitting. I took frequent breaks to listen to other books on my list or even return to funny books I've already read. This book is all consuming and the information is hard to shake off.
Any additional comments?
This is a difficult story to hear but one I think everyone needs to be told. The revelation that genocide can happen almost anywhere is stunning. That the international community did so little to stop it or even acknowledge it was happening is criminal. We must all bear witness to the darkest capabilities of humans so that they might never rear their heads again.

The voice reading it sounds like a poorly engineered robot, not a guy reading a book. Weird pauses in sentences and weird emphasis on words. Very distracting to listen to.
