    "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.

    Story
    "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.
