Lovely story. Terrible, Terrible Reading.
I loved the depth of the story, the gentle, seamless linking between this and part 1, the accurate historical links and traditions.
I come from an Igbo mother, and I see the traditions and folklore that exist in my own family, from a different but identical tribe. The classic behaviour of the men and women, the ideologies, the style, even down to the methods of travel. But my God! The pronunciation of more than half of the foreign words, are absolutely TERRIBLE. Damn near insulting. The least you could do for an audiobook, is ask the author, or a native speaker HOW to pronounce the limited, repeated words in the story. My face screwed up at every badly mispronounced word, and there were many. Many were innexcuseable! "Chi-nayke"? "Olo-roon"? urgh. It does the brilliant work of the author, poorly. Do better.
