Informative Must Listen Before Enjoying The Book

If you could sum up Things Fall Apart: CliffsNotes in three words, what would they be?

Informative, Knowledgeable, In-depth

Any additional comments?

I found this book informative in explaining to me the themes, background, and the language of the book. It even gave word definitions and explained the Ibo cultural context. Much of this would have went past me if I had listened to Things Fall Apart without studying the CliffNotes first. The book is so dense with meaning and craft that you can enhance your comprehension and appreciation by listening to the CliffNotes first. As the narrator explains, the CliffNotes do not replace enjoying the book; it only helps you get more joy out of it.
