Would you consider the audio edition of Love, Africa to be better than the print version?
I didn't read the printed version so I have no way of comparing the two.
What other book might you compare Love, Africa to and why?
It has the complicated love story of a David Nicholls book with the current affairs value of The Economist. This guy was there for every major African event of the past twenty years: the rise of Somali pirates, Iraq (and Afghanistan), the Nairobi shopping mall attack. You get an insider's view that offers more than just a headline and death toll.
What does Charlie Thurston bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
From Ivy League lawyers to Ethiopian warlords, Charlie Thurston does a good job of navigating all the different characters with their myriad backgrounds and sensibilities.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
In among all the chaos and despair of Africa, there's a love story at the heart of this book that you're really routing for.
Any additional comments?
Brutally honest and often, just brutal, this book will do more to give you the travel bug than any brochure.

I found the narrative rather boring. The author prides himself surviving through some dangerous situations during his career as journalist. He also had some difficulties in his relationship with his girlfriend and future wife. But there is definitely no romance. Also some deep evaluation of events in Africa is missing. The story is very weak, non persuasive and boring.
