    I love this book. I listened to the other narration, by Adjoa Andoh, also available through "Audiobooks". I think Andoh is an amazing narrator, but I was curious how it compared to this one. Sadly, the "sample" here is mislabeled; it is mostly a verbal introduction by an editor, followed by literally two seconds of narration by Francesca Choy-Kee. I think it's great that two versions of narration are available, but we should be able to properly sample both.
