Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lisette Lecat

Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Although a fifteen-year-old girl in Nigeria lives a privileged life, she is threatened by an abusive father and the threat of a military coup. Lisette Lecat does not narrate this audiobook as much as she casts a spell. Her lilting British-accented voice evokes Nigeria’s colonialist past, and her adroitness with the Ibo-speaking characters clearly places us in another culture. Overall, her ability to imbue each character with a distinct vocal personality makes this a stunning performance. There is both beauty and horror in this tale of modern Africa, and Lecat ensures this work will linger in the listener’s memory. P.R.
