The book was great and the narrator did a fine job at reproducing the diversity of accents of the various characters. But I found it bothersome that his speech was always slurred (nothing to hinder comprehension, tough). What was ok for the many instances of dialogue between drunk people was less than perfect when it came to Robicheaux's inner voice, or the vivid descriptions by the author of the Louisiana landscapes, soundscapes, smellscapes.

As teenagers, Ifemelu and Obinze fall in love in a Nigeria under military dictatorship. The self-assured Ifemelu departs for America, where Obinze hopes to join her, but post-9/11 America will not let him in, and he plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, after so long apart and so many changes, will they find the courage to meet again, face to face?

The reader (Adjoa Andoh) does a splendid job, has a velvety voice, and is exceptional with rendering accents - there are tons of different accents in the book and she switches seamlessly from character to character.
