Uwem Akpan writes in dialect and the Audible reading is exceptional as the reader is taken into the African world through short stories. Muslim violence in Northern Nigeria is related in a most compelling way. The most powerful story concerns the killing of a mother in front of her only child - who relates the story.
Anyone with an interest in Africa, good story telling, or the plight of children will benefit by these stories. Those just interested in great prose will not be disappointed either.

This is an incredible book in every way, but be sure to note that this audible download, disappointingly, is "Unabridged Selections" and not the entire book. Apparently, an audio version of the entire book is not available at the time I am writing this.
