When Chimamanda continually blames men for women's troubles I find that pathetic. You can improve

Would you try another book from Liliana Hart and/or Laura Faye Smith?

YES! I definitely would.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

liliana Hart loves suspense. I found myself taking my audio book everywhere, I mean EVERYWHERE just so I dont miss out a detail.

Have you listened to any of Laura Faye Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

this is my first Laura Faye performance

What character would you cut from Dirty Little Secrets?

take away any character and the plot falls apart.

Any additional comments?

Jaye is such a sweet person. It is hard not to like her. I just think her reporter friend/lover shouldnt be killed simply because he said he kills characters in his crime stories.

What made the experience of listening to Americanah the most enjoyable?

my most enjoyable experience ? I loved seeing the characters undergo this surgical transformation. Adichie knows what she is doing. Ifemelu and Obinze are two characters undergoing constant transformation. They have no game plan as it were. They just embraced life the way it happened to them. From the UK to the USA we see both Of them bending to forces beyond their control. In addition to being a test to their identity , this author has no regress, and rightfully too, when she describes in graphic details what her characters must do to survive .

What was one of the most memorable moments of Americanah?

i cant forget the moment Obinze realises he is better off than cleaning all sizes Of shit. His dignity at this moment takes a whole new meaning. .i think Adichie uses her two teenage lovers to make it clear that there is no damage from which we cannot recover.

What three words best describe Adjoa Andoh’s performance?

Bold, audacious , witty

Nigerian names are not that easy to pronounce. That she accepts to dare trying merits her the adjectives above.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Ifemelu's meeting with the sports trainer. She had to pay her rents and would hate herself for doing what she did.

Any additional comments?

I love the blog posts. .this tells me that the epistolary forms and Blogs can conviniently be used to advance plot within the same novel.

What made the experience of listening to No Orchids for Miss Blandish the most enjoyable?

The voice Of the reader just kept me hooked on.The story is wonderfully written in a way that non other Hadley Chase could do it. I wish the book never ended.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Slim was my favorite character. He is ruthlessly efficient, mean and consistent in his quest for evil. Just the perfect bad Guy you would love to see in a crime thriller.

Which character – as performed by Jeff Harding – was your favorite?

DOC.He has that demeanour about him, voicewise that lets you wondering What the Hell an educated man should be doing with a gang. His character is so real to reflect life situations Of the good Guy gone bad, and Jeff Harding does a good voice Job with Doc's character.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I smiled.

Any additional comments?

Waiting to see the movie version soon
