Editorial Reviews

Review

Since the success of Helen Fielding s Bridget Jones Diary, countless authors have offered chick lit knockoffs following the same conventional formula....In the Mrs Club, first time Nigerian author Ekene Onu, drops us into the lives of three trendy Nigerian women living in the United States - Titi, Mina and Amaka each at a different romantic crossroads. Titi (who is single, well, sort of), Mina (who is married) and Amaka (looking for Mr. Perfect) represent every woman and we can all relate to them as they search for love, self acceptance and truth. However Onu s compulsively readable and entertaining book is anything but formulaic. Three women. Infinite choices. Loads of drama. Onu puts a fresh spin on published literature for the Modern Nigerian woman. Mimi Magazine, Jan 2008 --Mimi Magazine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I couldn't put it down until I finished reading every page.

The book is funny and will speak to something inside you; truth be told, the characters might even remind you of yourself.

Who said this book was just for women! The Mrs Club is a page turner that gives you a peek into the minds of three naija babes. I was struck by how much each character reminded me a bit of somepeople I know. As you read the book, you can relate to the various themes: Mother-daughter relationship, inter and intra-cultural nuances and life in the diaspora.
At the end of the book, you come away reminded that there is a little Mina, Amaka and Titi in every woman, and a little Dele, Obinna, and Jeffrey in every guy. Don't play, cos you might get played! Get a Copy!

Okay, I bought this book because it was by a Nigerian author and I had read some excerpts. I also read the reviews and felt I owed it to myself to get a copy and boy oh boy was it ever the best decision I made. I am an avid reader but have not read in a while. I got this book and could not put it down. I read it front to cover in one day! What really intrigued me is that the stories of these ladies are not so disimilar from most of us. We have all at one point or the other been or encountered any one of these women. It is real but not condescending, truthful yet humorous, painful yet hopeful. Well I can go on and on, but seeing is believing, so get your own copy and buy a few for your girlfriends. Start a book club and let us discuss. And to the author, Ekene Onu, thank you for such a refereshing book. Please keep it coming, I look forward to reading more from you.

I started this book and was surprised at how captivating it is. I have not been able to put it down. It's a real page turner. I love how I can totally relate to the everyday nuances that are just typical 'naija babe'. The book is funny and will speak to something inside you; truth be told, the characters might even remind you of yourself.

Truly a very good book to have on your coffee table.

Watch out readers! Once you open the first page of this book, you will be completely hooked! Ms. Onu makes the story flow so easily, while keeping you in complete suspense as far as what happens next with each character. I just could not wait to read the next chapter and the next and the next. Some parts will shock you, while others will make you cry and also laugh so hard. I think that there are so many valuable lessons to learn from this book as well. While its told from a Nigerian woman's point of view, I think that many - regardless of cultural background or sex, will be able to relate to the challenges, hopes and aspirations of all the characters in this book. Its a must read!

The storyline of this book was really good, i could not drop this book until i finished it, which is unlike me i usually take my time reading novels but this was an exception. Reason why i gave it four star was there were a couple of typos, i think they could have done a better job with editing. Nonetheless i would highly recommend this book it's a great read and you won't regret buying this novel!

Loved it and could relate to at least 2 of the characters :) This book definitely captures the essence, challenges, and triumphs of today's Afropolitan women! A great read altogether.

I found the book to be poorly written. And not only did I not see myself or any other Nigerian American woman that I know in any of the characters, but the author's mixing of pigeon English, Igbo and English seemed too forced and not natural. She also falls short at any attempt to be descriptive when introducing the characters.
