Not a reading of the book.

This is a bad recording of a question and answer session with the author. Only a very short reading of the book.

Interesting, I will be more sensitive to the issue

Interesting, I will be more sensitive to the issues raised here as I interact with people from different cultures.

poor quality recording

The sound is poor and I didn't realize this was just an excerpt from the book. Disappointed.

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

Would you try another book from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and/or Robin Desser and Francesca Choy-Kee ?

I would definitely try another book from Chimamanda, she's a phenomenal author. However, this was NOT an audible of the book. It was a taping of a discussion of the book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie again?

The description of the audible would have to be explicitly clear on whether it is a book reading, or a discussion on the book in order for me to make that decision.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robin Desser and Francesca Choy-Kee ?

I would have cast Chimamanda herself.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

Any additional comments?

None.

Very good talk

This was a really good talk. I was very impressed by what she had to say.
