    Story

    Apparently, the purpose of the book was to show that African culture was not "primitive" before the British arrived. This book not only failed to do so, but in fact affirmed that the culture was previously extremely primitive. As an engineer, the fact that they never questioned things that were so obviously incorrect was beyond irritating. The narrator was also about as boring and slow as could be. He leaves a long pause every time he sees a comma, period, or just plain feels like it. It may not sound too bad but it makes for a miserable listening experience. Don't waste your money on this book.
