The author of the critically acclaimed Half of a Yellow Sun and Purple Hibiscus presents her newest novel Americanah, a story of love and race centered around a young man and woman from Nigeria facing challenges in the countries they come to call home.
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 issues raised here as I interact with people from different cultures.
The sound is poor and I didn't realize this was just an excerpt from the book. Disappointed.
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?
Any additional comments?

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