Good book (clearly biased though)

I enjoyed reading this work of art. The story is beyond any fiction I’ve ever read. It’s simply an extremely well written book.

I didn’t like the way Macintyre portrays the West in this book. He puts them on a pedestal and makes them look as angels/saviours (nothing could be further from the truth.)

Great book

I really enjoyed listening to this book. If you're thinking of buying, JUST DO IT! You will not regret it.
Chimamanda is a an excellent writer but I hate her endings. She always leaves the reader on a cliff. It is frustrating. Still a great read though.
P.S: Check out "Purple Hibiscus" by the same author.

Great read but...

This is a really good book. I’m an atheist myself and agree with many of her views. I just didn’t like her numerous false dichotomies. She constantly portrays Africa as a place full of ignorant and uneducated people. Yes, there are many idiots in Africa and many civilized people too. There’s good and bad everywhere. Her portrayal of the west as some kind of paradise contributes to the mindset that cause many people to leave the continent in search of a "better place" instead of staying and participating in building/fixing the continent.
The west was not built In one day. Mama Afrika will take a while to get built too.

Don’t waste your time. I wish I could return this trash. The book is full of unfounded claims with zero proof of why/how they work.

The author repeatedly says he’s not an expert or therapist but continually diagnoses the five subjects.
I didn’t learn anything new from listening to this book.
The material discussed in this book is very surface level and the author doesn’t expand on why his recommendations are useful.
Don’t waste your time. Pick a better book.

The author is beyond talented! This is a must read. Though I disagreed with his take on atheism, I still found his perspective very thoughtful and enlightening.
Do not skip this book!

Very honest and interesting read. I found the book educational and the story line was captivating. Also, being read by 50 Cent himself is a great plus.

He uses complicated language unnecessarily. His conclusions are very basic and common sense. Way too religious as well . There are a million better books than this. Don’t waste your time and money/credit.

Worth listening to. I liked the honesty, and the down to earth delivery. There weren’t many complicated words which made understanding much easier. I loved it
