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 enjoyed this true story very very much it had a lot of my hometown in it . Brooksville, Seffner Mango, Tampa, Florida. all of which is my hometown and stomping grounds. I love the story it was back and forth to Africa to Afghanistan and America , It was well worth listening to. I remember the newspaper articles and news on TV of the some of the things the writer talked about in this story. I listened to the whole story all in one day . I just could not quit listening to it . I will listen to this story many more times. I hope you get the chance to listen to the whole story it gets better and better and it is worth every bit of your time to listen. I hope you enjoy it too.😊
